Cape Town - Nosipho Mngomezulu's Idols dream is over.

The 22-year-old farmer from Soshanguve received the least votes from viewers after her performance of Bruno Mars' Grenade in Sunday's episode of the reality show.

In Tuesday night's elimination show, host ProVerb singled out the bottom three of the remaining nine contestants. Chloe Kiley, Dominic Neill and Nosipho ended up in the hot seats.

This was Dominic's second time in the bottom three.

Before the elimination was announced, Flash Republic performed their single We're The Kids. Flash Republic frontwoman Tamara Dey was this week's mentor.

The Top 8 Idols 8 contestants will perform in front of a live audience at the Mosaïek Teatro, on Friday 17 August and the spectacular will be broadcast on M-Net and Mzansi Magic on Sunday 19 August at 17:30.

Watch Nosipho's final performance here.

    I think it was her time, her performance on Sunday was not on par with the standards of the other contestants! Sorry Nosipho!

    I think the author of this article is an idiot. Why use duh strong words, he or she just sounds like they had a personal grudge against the girl.

    @sandile, my sentiments the same..."BOOTED OFF" is a little over the top and sensationalist. Troll !!

    Never really like her singing. She was always too nervous and too aware of where she was all the time. She never really let herself go in a song, that's so turn off. Well, sorry girl at least you made it to top ten.

    Idols is pure nonsense, Dominic should be gone by now

      Thank that dominic character is an insult to the entire show,he shouldnt have even made it past auditions he is terrible

    THE METHOD OF VOTING IS INCORRECT JUDGES - HAVE NO SAY? WHY ARE THEY THERE?MOST TIMES THE CONTESTANT WITH A HUGE FAMILY AND FRIEND BASE WHO HAVE ACCESS TO NUMEROUS SIM CARDS VOTE THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF TIMES. COULD THIS HAVE BEEN THE CASE? ONCE AGAIN THE WEAKEST LINK,DOMINIC, WAS NOT VOTED OFF.

    I was forced to have this rubbish on in the background and I noted something, What is the point of voting when the final say is down to the judges when they give them one more chance to save themselves by singing ? It's a quick way of making money from the sms sent and to me it seems rigged if the judges choice go against the peoples vote

    I know who is going to win judging from the history of the competiton well I am still voting for my favourites, KHAYA AND TSHIDI to reach at least the final 4 or 3 but let me tell you none of them will take the first prize we can bet on that one as long as CHLOE girl is still there she is the obvious winner not that she can sing but she is the next winner mark my words

      Is your statement not a bit shallow. It is Idols and people do vote for the one they believe can sing and be their idol. I do not follow Idols, but due to kids I am force to watch now and than. I think the person you fear are good, but than I think Simphiwe is also good and being from my "country"(Namaqualand)I will vote for him....if I ever will vote. Don't you now blame me from being bias ;) LOL!

    The only idol contestant with any TALENT is Tshidi. At this stage in the competition contestants should not be singing OFF, FALSE and be able to get the timing right. The idols judges should be change, because 90% of the time they don't know what they're talking about.

  • venecia.scheepers - 2012-08-15 12:16

    The only Idol with TALENT is Tshidi. The rest sing false, off and can't even keep to the timing of a song. We need some new Judges 90% of the time the comments MADE are completely incorrect.

      lorain.maseko - 2012-08-15 15:10

      Venecia it's nt the judges that are the problem,it's the voting public who vote based on skin colour and nothing else. i do blame the judges however for allowing Dominic to make it this far,he is offensive to the eardrums

  • Louise Whittingstall Barnard - 2012-08-15 12:53

    I voted for Dominic and Chloe!!!! I love them!!!

  • shaakieras1 - 2012-08-15 12:57

    very sad... she had one more week in her. this is the top 10 - everyone of those kids are great... i mean the last 10 standing after thousands of auditions... hardest part of the show...somebody has to go home ...regardless of their talents! vote for your favourites... thats the only way... and even if they are eliminated at least you know you did your part...VOTE TSIDI + SHEKHINAH + MELISSA

  • claire.ranwell - 2012-08-15 15:44

    If you want to blame someone for Nosipho being voted out - blame yourself....for not voting for her enough!!! All this other stuff is nonsense.

  • bam.boo.5621 - 2012-08-15 23:11

    Dom will be the next idol. Let's show them. He's been set up for failure.

  • refiloe.shikwambana - 2012-08-16 14:40
