We've all eagerly awaited this moment, the end of auditions, and none other than Nandi closed it out with banging vocals and an impressive CV. It's no surprise that every Idols SA hopeful is bringing their A-game this season – it's all about turning up the heat.
As expected, we scored a few hilarious moments with the likes of Vandamme and Young Killa. Although their intentions were in the right place, talent was lacking, earning them a spot as Wooden Mic contenders.
However, Skaqakaqa deserves special mention - from making the judges dread their jobs to speaking fluent Somizi, he was an absolute delight. Thankfully, he left us with a few pearls of wisdom on lowering expectations. For now we will be keeping our hopes up as we gear up for Theatre Week. In the meantime, we think there's enough hope to share especially with our Wooden Mic contenders. If you haven't already, head over to the Wooden Mic tab here and pick your favourite.
