Idols X – 18 contestants from GP get a golden ticket

Idols SA X episode 1 - JHB auditions (29)

The new season of South African Idols kicked off on M-Net and Mzansi Magic on Sunday. This is the tenth season of the hit show, that has seen the likes of Heinz Winkler, Zoe Zana, Khaya Mthethwa, Lloyd Cele and Elvis Blue all become household names in Mzansi. The show continues to hit the high notes with audiences and so it’s no surprises Gareth Cliff, Unathi Msengana, Randall Abrahams and host Proverb are all back to find the next best unsigned singer in the land.

I missed the first episode last night but I’m told there were keepers and then there were the shockers. Did you watch? If so, who caught your attention? While I wait to hear from you, here are the 18 names who grabbed the attention of the judges in Johannesburg:

 

Andries Nkhomola (27) from Thembisa, who is a choir director in his local church

Brandon Brits (23), a neurophysiologist from Springs

Busi Ngwenya (23) from Vosloorus, who works as a service consultant in a bank.

Felix Menoe (21) from Potchefstroom

Dineo Moseki (20), who is on a gap year after school and came all the way from Tlhakgameng near Mafikeng in North West Province

Dineo Ramailane (30), a full-time musician from Kimberley

Mfakadolo “Alfred” Tsatsi (27) from Sasolburg

Freddie Wessels (26), a worship leader from Krugersdorp
