FINAL DAY OF ‘IDOLS SA’ THEATRE WEEK 

Following the duet round of Theatre Week on Sunday 14 August, the Idols SA contestants were tasked with singing their rendition of a hit song. There was more pressure as this year, only 12 contestants would move to the live stages of the talent competition. 

Tesmin-Robyn, a Johannesburg-based talent sang Lebo Mathosa’s classic hit, Brand New Day, bringing all three judges to their feet. With her smooth vocals, she was the first contestant to go through to the top 12. 

Fan-favourite Zadwesh Tshatshu had a rocky time during Theatre Week but still pulled through for his final performance. Sadly, he did not impress the judges and failed to make it into the top 12.
