Idols 8: Khaya versus Melissa

This season of South African Idol has been one of the best yet. The talent has been great, but there can only be one. On Tuesday evening we find out who between Khaya Mthethwa and Melissa Allison is named as the new South African Idol. The obvious assumption is that Khaya will win. I was in the recording on Friday night and judging by the reactions there, it’s Khaya’s title. But stranger things have happened. While people are sharing their obvious favourite on the social networks, it’s votes that count and so don’t count Melissa out of this.

For me, he is the better singer of the two, but that isn’t to say that Melissa wont have a career in music. In fact, I think she is going to do extremely well if she doesn’t win. It’s so tight, so close. Voting lines are still open and will be open until 10pm tomorrow night. Do your bit… You don’t have a reason to moan if you don’t vote. I’m just saying.

Good luck to both of them. I’ll be at Tuesday’s announcement, so stay tuned for more on this.
