JOHANNESBURG – Would-be stars gathered in the capital city on Sunday, as the singing competition Idols SA held a round of auditions. The State Theatre in Pretoria was packed to capacity with young hopefuls hoping to win over the judges.
Khaya Mthethwa, who won season eight of the singing competition, was a guest judge. His experience as a contestant saw him empathise with the singers, but without being a pushover.
This episode of Idols SA was an indication of just how many people believe they can sing and who want to win.
Among those who auditioned were returnees, who thought they could convince the judges to give them a second chance.
