Can you believe it’s the end of another #IdolsSA season? That came really quickly, damn… This season has been good and the talent has been superb. In season eight we all knew who was going to win, as far back as theatre week. Last year it looked like Brenden was going to take it and then right at the end Musa walked away with the title. So if that is anything to go by, the title is still very much up for grabs. I’m not going to jinx it but I do think Vincent has the advantage in this one. I think it would be nice to see either one of them win, but I’d love a bit of a change now, so Bongi is my ideal winner. Let’s see what happens though.

The live finale is taking place at Carnival City (urgh) on Sunday evening. The two will get to perform twice during the finale. Bongi will sing her favourite song from the entire season – Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black” and Vincent will reprise his version of Miguel’s “Adorn”. They will then perform a duet of “Almost Is Never Enough”, by Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes. Going to be a good night as far as they are concerned, but they’re not the only performers for the night. Cassper Nyovest, South African supergroup Prime Circle, and Season 9 Idols winner Musa Sukwene and DJ Sbu will all take to the Idols stage too.

#IdolsSA top 4 song choices

The Top 4 will take to the stage this week, performing songs based on the “Old School/ New School” theme. What will they sing? Here’s a look at what the remaining five have chosen, but what only four will perform:

 

Old School:

Bongi Silinda (24) – Brenda Fassie hit “Too Late For Mama”.

JVB says: A very good song choice for Bongi. It has been an emotional week for South Africa and I feel like the emotion in this song will resonate with the viewers.

 

Kyle Deutschmann (27) – Zahara’s “Loliwe”

JVB says: Old school? Already? It’s more new school for me, but after what Kyle did with the Oasis track last week, I look forward to seeing what he has in store for us with this one.

 

Lize Mynhardt (21) – Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel”,

JVB says: Nice track… Hopefully she will loosen up and have fun with this one.

 

London Louw (24) – Tina Turner’s “It”,

JVb says: I love me some Tina and with London peaking at this stage of the competition, I’m sure he’s going to bring it.

 

Vincent Bones (29) – “Sondela” by Ringo Madlingozi.

JVB says: Another winning song choice… I have no doubt in my mind that this will be a crowd favourite.

New School:

Bongi – Keri Hilson’s “Knock You Down”

JVB says: One of my all time favourites and I had the opportunity to meet both Keri and Ne-Yo. We chatted about the success of this song and how epic it is. How will Bongi fare? I think she’ll do well here.

 

Kyle – Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”,

JVB says – Katy Perry is the bomb and this is arguably one of her best songs. Again, another interesting song choice from Kyle.

 

Lize – Michael Bublé hit “Feeling Good”

JVB says – I’m expecting an epic performance here. The song is bold, sexy, strong and hopefully the stage and Liza’s stylist will rise to the occasion too.

 

London- Duffy’s “Mercy”

JVB says: London will shine here. It’s a fun track and I’m sure we can expect him to dance again. He’s showing off now really 😉

 

Vincent – Usher’s “Climax”.

JVB says: Good song. This is a sexy song and I’m sure we’ll see that emotive facial expression we’ve come to expect from Vincent to make its appearance once again.
