A moment any aspiring singer would die for! Idols SA contestant Nozi received her much deserved flowers from American singer Jennifer Hudson after she performed her hit song Giving Myself as one of the top 10 contestants on Idols SA. 


Sharing a video from her amazing performance, Jennifer Hudson said if she was present during the live show, she would have thrown a shoe at Nozi because of her stellar performance. 

"Ok I’m a little late but y'all need to hear this ! Nozi on @IdolsSA performed my song “Giving Myself.” If I was there she would have caught a shoe ! She did that!!!" gushed the American singer.
On the Sunday show, Nozi brang Thembi Seete to tears who told her to “Stay vulnerable because it translates to your work,” she said. 

While Somizi on the other hand got on stage and gavr Nozi a “whoo-shem!” and the final judge, JR said: “We might as well shut down the show because Idols is done.”


As it stands, the Idols SA season 18 top 10 is: CeeJay, Kabelo, Lerato, Mpilwenhle, Noxolo, Nozi, Tesmin-Robyn, Thapelo, Ty Loner, and Zee.

Viewers were not too pleased when DudluKaDlamini got voted off and they even started a petition to bring her back.  

"DudlukaDlamini is a good and talented singer and was Unfairly judged, her last performance on idols season 18 was on fire, and she could've made it to the Top 12 season 18,"read the petition. "It's grossly unfair to have criteria and then choose to aggregate contestants instead of judging them on merit. The standard of pop culture in SA is not the same as in the US. We don't care if she's a size 8 or 16. All we care about is whether a contestant can sing or not and this child can saaang. Better than some of the kids in the top 12."
