Day 3

It's just after 3AM right now in New York City (11am our time) and our budding stars are very likely fast asleep. They'll need that rest too as it was another eventful day which saw them put in several hours of rehearsal plus a little sightseeing before traveling out of New York City for the first time since landing. The destination? – an up-scale shopping complex in the small town of Woodbury where they got time to treat themselves to a shopping spree with the Old Mutual moola they have in the bank.

One look at the snaps makes it clear that they not only went to town but were over the moon with their finds. We're mad curious to find out what exactly they splurged on but, owing to the financial training they got earlier in the season, we're pretty sure they balled on a budget and set aside a little for any potential rainy days ahead.

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.
