The theme for the night was songs from the ultimate South African wedding playlist. The top 9 contestants brought their A-game to the beautifully decorated Mosaïek Teatro stage.
Niikiey opened the show with a rendition of Malaika’s “Mmatswale”, earning praise from the judges. Judge Somizi Mhlongo offered some career advice, saying, “Do you want to make a lot of money in music? Then this is your genre, mntwan’am. It was your concert.”
Sena closed the show on a high note with Stevie Wonder’s “All I Do”. Judge JR commented: “It was straight to the point. It did what it had to do, but you’re up against great singers, so you need to up the game every week.”
