Idols is a really great platform for aspiring singers to get exposure.Whether you make it to the top or not, you get some sort of exposure and experience that can be a foot in the door for your singing career.

We love to hear those beautiful voices and shed a few tears over them sometimes but how many times have we shed tears over people who actually cant sing.The wooden mic segment on Idols is the best part of the show.

Those people really know how to get us in laughing. It's become so popular that people intentionally go on the show knowing very well that they can't sing, it's purely for comedic purposes and to meet the judges of course.  

The judges in all their different personalities have even started to join in on the wooden mic fun. Look how Somizi is forever backing them up only to say no afterward.

Unathi is forever in tears when it comes to these performances and encourages them to sing more and then there's Randall. Well, yeah, then there's Randall, what more can be said about this guy.

On today's segment of TBT, we look back at some of our favourite wooden mic performances that left us in stitches and glued to the screens.

 Remember Zakhona who even got Randal laughing? Randal was laughing guys.    

What language is this?

Then there was the Fororo song.

Yes, Charlton we're listening, although it's painful to do so.
