Sunday night saw the last group of seven Top 14 contestants perform for a spot in the Top 10. Mkwela, a 24-year-old prosthetics technician from Durban, performed Adele's Chasing Pavements, while Peppeta chose former American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson's first hit, A Moment Like This.

Jamie-Lee Sexton, who performed Duffy's Mercy, also ended up in the bottom three according to viewer votes. Judge Randall Abrahams said this was exactly the bottom three he would also have chosen.

The Tuesday night results show featured performances from former Idols contestants Pixie Bennett and Graeme Watkins, who both performed with their bands, and a special performance from Irish rock group Ash, who are currently on tour in South Africa.

The Top 10 Idols will perform at the Friday night recording of the show in Fairlands, Johannesburg, where Parlotones frontman Kahn Morbee will return as a guest judge. This episode will air on M-Net on Sunday September 5.

The Top 10 contestants are:

Elvis Blue (30) from George
Lloyd Cele (28) from Durban
Adeline Mocke (22) from Cape Town
Bongi Mthombeni (23) from Thembisa
Sindi Nene (22) from Durban
Gail Nkoane (25) from Kimberly
Boki Ntsime (21) from Johannesburg
Jamie-Lee Sexton (22) from Johannesburg
Pieter West (25) from Koffiefontein
Jess Yallup (22) from Durban
