I can’t believe we’re already down to seven (on Sunday it will be six) contestants in this season of Idols. It has been a great season and the talent this season is really strong, but speaking of strong… the big dogs are really starting to shine and without mentioning their names, you know who I’m referring to. So with that in mind, let’s take a look at what the contestants will be singing this week, bearing in mind one of them wont be lucky enough to sing their chosen song for the week
Bongi Silinda (24)- Mafikizolo “Happiness”.
JVB thinks… this is a good choice. It’s a very popular song and the duo that is Mafikizolo is hugely popular. Looking forward to this one.
Demi Lee (24) Florence and the Machines “Dog Days Are Over”.
JVB thinks… I hope she has fun with this one. It’s a good song and very suited to her style and voice.
Kyle Deutschmann (27) John Newman’s “Love Me Again”.
JVB thinks… If he survives the vote, he might doing a different arrangement of this song. I love John Newman and this is one of my songs of the year so I’m interested to see how he interprets this one.
Lize Mynhardt (21) – Jason Derulo’s “In My Head”.
JVB thinks… She’s pushing the boundaries and going out of her comfort zone a lot, which is good. I just don’t really know what sort of music she would like to produce and make herself. I think she’ll do a fair job here.
London Louw (24) “Problem” by Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea
JVB thinks… Hmmmm, not sure about this one. It’s a tough song choice because Iggy and Ariana are so different in their styles. It’s an upbeat track so the performance side of things will be good, but the singing bit I’m a bit concerned about. Your thoughts?
Musa Mashiane (27) – Jamiroquai’s “Love Foolosophy”.
JVB thinks… Fun, fun, fun. I’m sure he’ll enjoy himself and in doing so, so will the audience.
Vincent Bones (29) “Pluto”, from DJ Clock featuring Beatenberg.
JVB thnks… Arguably the biggest song of the year, so this is a smart move. Audiences will love it too, purely because of its massive appeal to all demographics. It will be nice to see him lighten it up a bit and have some fun.
Catch the show on M-Net and on Mzansi Magic at 17:00 this Sunday. I will also be Hanging out with the outsted contestants on Monday. Keep an eye out for that too 😉
