2014-08-04 07:14

Pretoria – The last stop on the Idols season 10 audition leg was Pretoria and boy did some interesting characters show up.

There were twerkers, comeback kids, surprise auditions and heart wrenching stories to be told. All in all the capital delivered 20 golden tickets.

Here’s what went down!             

With Gareth accompanying her with Missy Elliot’s Work It, Keeley Knutton showed off her twerking skills. She got yes for the twerking but a no for her singing. We’re glad this is a singing show and not a twerking one!

Next up was 16-year-old Olivia Cloud who broke it down Pitch Perfect style with her audition of No Diggity. The judges were impressed by her song choice.

Mirandi Smith blew everyone away. Come on! Admit it! No-one saw that voice coming out of that tiny body!

Hloni Mahati had everyone in tears! He came to audition after attending his girlfriend’s funeral. We agree with Unathi it wasn’t his story that got us. He does have a beautiful voice.

And then there were the comebacks these contestants came back to audition in the same season!

The good - Bongiwe Silinda. Even Randall was blown away by the texture and quality of her voice.

And the bad. Remember him, he gave himself a 10/10 for his rendition of John Legend’s All of Me at the Jozi auditions. This time he bought along his guitar Rosie. Poor Rosie.

Randall gave one contestant the ultimate test. If you're a singer you can sing anything, right? We give you the menu singer.

Our performer of the evening has got to be Gordon Cook. He fangirled over Randall and then made Idols history being the first person ever to get two golden tickets. Hier kom ‘n ding!

Here's how Twitter reacted to the Pretoria auditions.
