Idols SA takes Cape Town

This past Sunday, Cape Town put its best foot forward and introduced South Africa to a brand new crop of Idols talent. As expected, the Mother City didn’t scrimp on the goods, much to Twitter’s delight.

Randall set the tone for what was to be one of this seasons memorable audition stops, with his motivational talk that wasn’t quite as inspiring as expected. And just like clockwork, the nerves kicked in and many contestants folded under pressure

But surely, there’s a method to the madness?

After realising “the well had been poisoned”, Gareth took matters into his own hands and had a talk with the contestants - and just like magic, Cape Town was back in business.

After meeting Cecil and Ethan, Randall suggested a smoking hot Idols duet, which didn’t work out quite as planned. Oh boy!

Luckily, Anelisa was on hand with a smile and her refreshing rendition of Lira’s “Feel Good”. Gareth liked her look and so did Unathi. Does she possess the “chillibabaz” and “ratataaaa” Somizi is looking for?

Nadia certainly was easy on the eye, but her nerves and lack of breathing almost did her in. Luckily, Unathi, Somizi and Gareth and took a gamble and decided give her the “B of the D” aka the Benefit of the Doubt. And just like that, the floodgates were opened. Will the tears dry by the time the bus gets to Sun City?

Unathi showed off her projectile skills during Renay’s audition and proceeded to flood the Judges table with her breakfast. All Gareth and the internet could say, was a collective “Sies! We still love you Unathi”.

Another Idols hopeful that had Twitter buzzing was music teacher, Taryn.

So it seems the Cape Town auditions inspired poetry…

…And cured some ailments

Idols SA rocks!

This Sunday, ProVerb, Unathi, Gareth, Randall and Somizi are headed to Durban! Will South Africa's next Idol come from the coast?
