After weeks of high and low notes, laughter and tears, shock exits and stunning performances, fans will be glued to the small screen as crooner Eon le Roux, The PJ Twins (Peter and John Talmarkes), African diva Siki Jo-An Qwazi , soulful Afrikaans singer Soné Joubert and young rocker Tasché Burger jostle for the title this Sunday.
As always, it’s up to the viewers to decide who gets to win and this past Sunday the top five contestants sang their hearts out. However, based on the last episode, there is no clear winner. Here is a quick recap of what went down.
Twenty-seven-year-old Soné from Gordon’s Bay, sang the Fleetwood Mac classic You Can Go Your Own Way. After her performance Lira said that she is the ultimate comeback kid after she was initially knocked out of the competition and brought back by public votes. “In my mind, you are already a fully-fledged recording artist,” said Lira.
Riky Rick reminded Soné that it takes a very special characteristic for the audience to keep demanding her return. “Take care of that and remain humble. People love you because of your humility,” he said.
Riky Rick’s final remaining contestant, Port Elizabeth's Eon performed a stirring rendition of the Aerosmith hit “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” from the 1998 movie Armageddon. “Last week on live TV I said I’m ‘in love’ with you. I’ve loved your voice from the first time I heard it,” Francois van Coke commented.
