With four of our Idols SA champions hailing from sunny Durban, it’s not hard to imagine why all eyes will be on the coast this Sunday. Add into the mix polarizing, but oh-so-entertaining Phat Joe playing guest celebrity judge and you’ve got the recipe for a feast of entertainment not to be forgotten soon.
There is plenty to look forward to when our auditions bus rolls into town though apart from fast-talking Joe. This season, Durban introduces us to a new class of talent that includes a student that has had a not-so-pleasant run-in with our guest judge before, a former actress that wants to try out her wings, a South African talent that has auditioned for Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban overseas, as well as what probably could be the longest audition we’ve ever witnessed.
Think that’s about it? Think again. Keep your eyes open for passionate, expletive filled rants, as well as plenty of law-breaking. Basically, unbelievable stuff. You don’t want to miss it!
Watch the Durban leg of the Idols SA auditions this Sunday at 17:30, on Mzansi Magic (DStv Channel 161).
