It’s all fun and games until somebody gets eliminated! That’s how it was for Idols contenders last night as 29 of the country’s unsigned singers battled it out for a spot in the Top 16 of Idols 13.
There was no time to take in the sights and sounds of the Wild Coast Sun as contestants watched one after the other getting the cut as the competition became more of a reality. The remaining 29 had to draw from deep within to survive the rest of Theatre Week and their stay depended on them bringing their A-game for Solo Performances.
The female force proved to be strong, with Judge, Unathi Msengana musing whether there would be enough guys to make it an even split with the girls for the Top 16. With only nine guys in the running, it was up to each individual to make the best of the song the Judges chose for them.
Watch The Highlights:
Just as Randall predicted, the guys continue to struggle with their lyrics and the coaches are getting increasingly frustrated as time is running out.
Diego completely forgets his lyrics and despite massive encouragement from Unathi and the audience he chokes up and calls it the “worst performance ever”
