Only 24 golden tickets given out on Idols SA’s first episode

Cape Town - Seasons 15 of South African Idols is back on our TV screens.

The popular singing reality show kicked off last night in Pretoria and the theme this year is ‘Going for Gold’. The talent in the Capital City wasn’t as outstanding as expected and Judges Unathi Msenga, Somizi, Randall Abrahams and guest judge Rebecca Malope were handing out a lot of ‘Nos’ on the first day on the job but thank goodness this was just the first round of auditions.

Viewers were also not happy with the long list of ‘wooden mic’ contestants and very few talented people.


It was a pleasant to see Dalene Swartz (21) returning to the show. She made it to Top 16 last year.

By the end of the episode a total of 24 golden tickets were rewarded from the thousands who auditioned in Pretoria. Next stop is Johannesburg – the city of gld. We’re hoping the contestants will show us some ‘golden’ talent.

Idols SA season 15 is on Mzansi Magic (DStv 161) on Sundays at 17:30.
