ENTERTAINMENT NEWS AND VIDEO - Idols SA is back on television screens as the first episode of season 16 aired on Sunday 2 August.
The popular singing reality competition kicked off last night in Cape Town with mass auditions.
The talent in the Mother City seemed promising as judges Unathi Nkayi, Randall Abrahams, Somizi Mhlongo and guest judge Cassper Nyovest handed out a total of 32 golden tickets on the first day – a big improvement from last year when only 24 golden tickets were given out in Pretoria in the first episode.
Cassper actually enjoyed being a judge so much that he said he would gladly be a part of the entire season.
Viewers were loving all the funny moments in the new season so far, including ProVerb’s sarcasm.
One contestant that surprised viewers was Sibabalwe Tunzi, who is Miss Universe Zozibini’s sister.
Watch the touching moment Sibabalwe tells Zozibini she made it through on Idols SA:
