Johannesburg - The top 4 will all get a chance to perform on Idols SA this Sunday before one bids farewell.
The songs for the Top 3 Spectacular at the State Theatre were chosen for the contestants by the Idols SA band, and will kick off with two duets.

24-year-old Siphelele Ngcobo and 24-year-old Karabo Mogane are teaming up to perform L’loyd Cele and Loyiso Bala’s hit Thando, and the only woman left standing in this competition, 23-year-old Mmatema is singing Ariana Grande’s Love Me Harder with Rhema Varrie.
There are also guest appearances this week by the South African group Gangs of Ballet and by the Motswako Originator himself, Khuli Chana, along with Patoranking.
Here are the two individual songs the contestants will be singing:
Karabo is preparing the Al Green classic Let’s Stay Together”and taking a leaf from Siphelele’s playbook with a South African hit, Zahara’s Umthwalo.
Mmatema is working on Chaka Khan’s anthem I’m Every Woman and Mafikizolo’s Happiness.
Rhema is singing the Jackson Five’s I Want You Back and the Miguel hit, Adorn.
And Siphelele hopes to impress with another Luther Vandross classic, Dance With My Father, as well as ZamaJobe’s Ndawo Yami.

Watch the performances on Sunday on M-Net (DStv 101) and Mzansi Magic (DStv 161) at 17:00.
