Man, oh man how unpredictable this competition is… Last night Innocent was voted out of the Idols competition. I must be honest, I’m very surprised. I really enjoyed his rendition of the Phil Collins smash hit, Two Hearts. I thought his performance was fun, engaging and I really liked the way he sang it. I also believe there were far worse performances on Sunday evening, but I guess it’s the votes that count.
I’ll be doing a Google+ Hangout with the 27-year-old Limpopo hopeful at 10am this morning. If you have any questions, drop me a line!

On Sunday evening, Big Brother The Chase housemates Neyll and Biguesas were evicted from the BBA house. Were they upset? Did they leave their strategies a little too late? How were the feeling about their fellow housemates nominating them? Check out my Google+ Hangouts with Angola‘s Neyll and Biguesas below:

Big Brother The Chase housemates, Koketso and LK4 were booted out of the reality contest last night.

Yesterday I tested out Google’s Hangout On Air. I, together with my colleagues, got to chat to the Big Brother The Chase housemates, who were evicted on Sunday evening. Check out our interview with Huddah and Denzel below:
I recently got to chat to Nashville Tennessee rockers, Hot Chelle Rae, which I did for DStv.com. In case you’re wondering who exactly they are, they’re the guys who brought you the song Tonight Tonight. I had one of those moments when I got an email from my friends at Sony to say I could interview the band. I thought, hmmm what is this, let alone who are they. Needless to say, after a bit of Youtube-ing and Google-ing I got to know them before doing the interview.
I chatted to two members from the group and they were really rad. Very friendly and so grateful to me for taking the time out to interview them, really? Here are a bunch of guys who were nominated for an American Music Award, a band who have shared the stage with Taylor Swift and who have worked with (former) Disney star, Demi Lovato thanking me. Nice man.
