Dreams: Then there were 29!

22 December 2017
What was meant to be Top 25 ended up being 29 as the judges felt generous.

The stakes are definitely high and as most of the contestants proved to be more taented than the judges anticipated, they couldn't settle for a Top 25 and decided that they were going to exercise their powers in adding an extra four. As an added bonus, the Top 29 were taken on a surprise sunset cruise on the mighty Zambezi River and it was dance, music and of course a lot of singing from our contestants.

However, just when the contestants thought all was honky dory and they would finally rest after the eventful evening, theywere struck with yet another surprise, they had to perform for a good part of the night. This wasn't just any performance, they would have to fight for their places in the Top 10, individually.

The drama of the night will definitely have to have been Fabiola, who after missing the beat on Sia's “Chandelier” and when the judges dismissed her, she couldn't contain her emotions.
