DAY ONE

Luyolo, Micayla and Sneziey are living le good life and rolling in style thanks to Malume Verb, just as he promised. They touched down in New York late, last night (our time) but it was actually morning there so to fight the jetlag, they went sightseeing. Here they are checking out Grand Central Station, the stunning Time Square, riding through Central Park in a horse carriage and also checking out the phenomenal, 9/11 memorial.

Touch down at John F. Kennedy, International Airport:

Day 2

This Sunday our Idols debut their official singles and judging by how beautiful the studio sessions sounded, the final product are promises to be something EPIC! To give the fruits of their labour work an extra boost and top the charts, Luyolo, Micayla and Sneziey will need to demolish their performances. That's why they all took a break from exploring The Big Apple to polish and perfect what they're prepping for Sunday.

Malume Verb certainly wasn't playing when he said "roll with me and you roll in style" either. The Millenium Hilton is in the prestigious, neighbourhood of Mid-Town Manhattan close to New York Law School, the World Trade Centre memorial, Broadway street and the Brooklyn Bridge. It's also a stone's throw away from the upscale shopping district of SoHo which is where the plush rehearsal studio our Idols were practicing in is located.

Seeing as SoHo is one of New York's most vibrant shopping hubs, you'll need to stay tuned for deets on what our Idols spend their Old Mutual moola on.
