Johannesburg - Billboard Music Award winner Carly Rae Jepsen is the special guest artist for this Sunday’s Idols SA top 5 spectacular. The 29-year-old Canadian pop star originally got her first start in Idols as well, placing third in season 5 of Canadian Idol in 2007.
Since then she has gone on to dominate world charts with hit after hit, like 2011’s Call Me Maybe, and I Really Like You this year. The dual musical themes for the top 5 this week are "How It Should Be Done" and "Viewers’ Choice". As always, not all of the top 6 will get to perform on Sunday, as the one receiving the fewest votes this week will have to bid their Idols SA dream farewell again during the broadcast. The top 5 will each perform two numbers. In the first round they will demonstrate how this year’s Wooden Mic contenders should have performed their songs, and in the second round they will sings songs suggested for them by the Idols SA fans on WeChat.
Here's what the contestants will sing this week:
Little Miss Dynamite Dineo Moseki (22) from Vryburg will demonstrate how Golden Mic contender Barry de Sousa should have approached the Tracy Chapman classic Baby Can I Hold You, and for the second round, the Etta James classic All I Could Do Was Cry.
24-year-old Karabo Mogane from Mbombela is performing Alicia Keys’s I Keep On Falling, which was massacred by Nofesane Bushula in the season 11 auditions, and his fan favourite number is Ringo Madlingozi’s Ekuseni.
Loyiso Gijana (16) from Uitenhage will be showing Golden Mic wannabe Nonelela Bashe how Zahara’s Ndiza should be done, and Bob Marley’s One Love for his for the second round. 23-year-old Mmatema Moremi from Limpopo will do a proper interpretation of Mary Mary’s Gospel classic I Can’t Give Up Now, which was attempted by Ziyanda Stefane during the auditions phase, and Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You for the second round. Rhema Varrie (21) from Alberton is taking on Bruno Mars’s Billionaire which Wooden Mic contender Gavin Msiza did in the auditions, and in the second round he performs the Percy Sledge classic When a Man Loves a Woman.
And 24-year-old Siphelele Ngcobo from Inanda will rehabilitate John Legend’s So High after Palesa Khutsoane’s assassination attempt on it in the auditions, and his second round song is The Soil’s Inkomo.
Tune in to see the performances on Sunday at 17:00 on M-Net (DStv 101) and Mzansi Magic (DStv 161)!
