With the exit of long-time judge Gareth Cliff, the judges’ table has decidedly got more room.
Somizi, Unathi and Randall Abrahams will return to bring you another jam-packed and exciting new season of Idols SA. Proverb will still hold it down as the host of the show.
While we wait to see what happens with the empty seat during the live shows, some celebrity bums occupied it during the audition phase. R&B muso Donald impressed in Cape Town, powerhouse vocalist Kelly Khumalo took charge in Joburg, the opinionista of the airwaves Phat Joe was in Durban and former Idols winner and music star Khaya Mthethwa gave love in Pretoria.
For the first time in Idols history, the show introduced the Golden Disc, a “get out of jail free card” that a judge can use to bump up a contestant to Theatre Week even if the other judges say no.
Idols Season 13 premieres on Mzansi Magic, Channel 161, on Sunday 09 July 2017 at 17:30.
