The participants of the idols fail in the Showstopper
The participants of the idols fail in the Showstopper-Show, whereby only Sneziey shows up to the situation.
The theme for the top six performances of Idols SA was a showstopper, but 80% of the show was a spectacular flop. Only one participant filled the topic and stopped the traffic, while another came hopefully closer – more about that.
It was their worst week since the start of the Top 10. My favorite candidate Mmangaliso Gumbi, who was fired, didn’t make it easy – although I saw it coming last week and put it on the ground, it just shows that it is a popularity contest and the South Africans are relentless. One mistake and you’re out.
Next week will be the most interesting elimination yet, as most of the participants were bombed. Who will be in the top five?
Fry us, we are your eggs; braai us, we are your meat and peel us, we are your vegetables. It was Sneziey’s show and the other five just came along. Sneziey came to grab wigs and she did just that. Her performance of Tina Turner’s hit Proud Mary was larger than life. Sneziey discounted and shimmered in her graded little number. When she leaked the catchy lyrics “rollin’, rollin’, rollin’, rollin'”, she appeared in the Top 5. Sneziey, the diva has arrived. Finish them, they are your project.
Viggy was not in good shape, but she had fun on this stage and read it beautifully on stage. Sure, vocally she was very pitchy, but she embodied the spirit of Zanda Zakuza’s song Hamba. After weeks where she could either be forgotten or bored, I was thrilled by her performance. It’s not a simple song, but she dared to be different and the risk paid off.
The most consistent contestant suffocated on a very important week. Nolo was not only boring but also horrible and flat. First, he made the wrong song selection, the selection of Da Capo’s Speed of Sound was suicidal. Singing in such a low falsetto felt forced and gimmicky. Above all, he was not only able to connect with the dancers, but also with the audience and the song. The ship sank and not even this radiant smile could save him.
Micayla oil proofer
Has Micayla given up or is she tired? Where was the fire? She had done it vocally right and succeeded in making the steps to dance choreography right. Worth It by Fifth Harmony was the perfect and age-appropriate song selection for her. But her energy was so low as if she was forced to stand on this stage – I started to worry about her. The competition seems to have taken an emotional toll on her, which breaks my heart because she has what it takes. She is the most popular star who looks like one of the remaining hopefuls. Please take our beautiful Micayla team to a spa for recharge therapy.
Virginia opted for a large song selection in Khona by Mafikizolo and showed her flames. She was much in her head and you could see that she even counted the steps to the dance number. She was too busy getting the dance movements directly onto her T-shirt to end with her death. She had no control over the performance and had no stage presence.
