For the past weeks after Somizi's departure, Idols SA viewers were not impressed at all, saying the standard of the show has fallen flat. Producers thought numerous guest judges would help save the show as Somizi brought his own entertainment which kept Mzansi glued to their screens.

There were guest judges but they failed to impress viewers, or keep their avid viewers hooked. On social media, tweeps expressed disappointment with the show, guest judges or performances. It was only until Dineo Ranaka came and saved the show!

Starting off the festivities with a bitter sweet note was Monique who got eliminated off the competition show. The remaining 8 though, which was voted by over 5 million people, sang with a lot of enthusiasm and Dineo managed to judge them accordingly.

Randall seems to have a new favourite on the competition show and he even said so himself that he has never seen anybody like her on the show. It was Nqobie's performance which sealed the deal for Randall, after she performed Soa Mattrix and Soulful G’s Uthando. He applauded her for not trying too hard to win and called her cool. "I have never seen anyone like you on the show," he said.

There would be 9 contestants left if it wasn't for Ithana's decision to dump the competition when she was part of the top 10. According to M-Net local channels entertainment director, Nomsa Philiso, the 22-year-old dropped out from the top 10 due to medical reasons.

β€œAs M-Net we wish her a speedy recovery. It is unfortunate that she cannot continue in the competition but her health is of paramount importance. I know this is not the last time South Africans see her on our screens,” she said.

Viewers were ready to give up on Idols as they claimed they were boring. Flooding his comments section on social media were concerned fans who wish for him to make a come back. Viewers started off with just airing their disappointment to threatening to never watch Idols ever again, and they were all action not just talk.

This as the numbers for Idols plummeted to a staggering 600K viewers, instead of their usual 1 million fans. According to repots, this means 324 847 viewers dumped Idols as well.

His  friend Kelly Khumalo was the second best option after Somizi as viewers felt that she fits so well - but she too shunned Idols. This is because she already has other commitments with another rival singing competition, on SABC 2 - called Stand Up South Africa.

She judges the competition show with Lorcia Cooper Khumalo and Kurt Darren. Hosting the show is the beautiful Dineo Langa.
