Wow, this season of Idols South Africa has flown by and we are only a week away from finding out who takes the crown at this year’s Idols SA finale. This season, the tenth overall, has been one of the toughest so far and the viewers are clearly loving the show. M-Net announced that the show has already broken records with regards to viewers votes this season and we’re so excited to see who will win this year’s competition.

The two remaining contestants are 24-year-old Bongi Silinda from Nelspruit or 30-year-old Vincent Bones from Pietermaritzburg. This is after 21-year-old Lize Mynhardt was booted from the competition.

Fans will also be able to meet the Top 2 in malls throughout the country this week. The Telkom Idols SA whirlwind tour kicks of on Tuesday , 18 November, at the Cradlestone Mall in Muldersdrift outside Johannesburg; then they’ll be at the Gateway Theatre of Shopping in Umhlanga on Wednesday, 19 November; and at Canal Walk in Cape Town on Thursday, 20 November. These appearances will all take place at 15:00 in the afternoon.

Their brand new singles that have been written especially for them also dropped on iTunes tonight: a song called “If I Got You” for Bongi, and “Let Me Love” for Vincent.

To vote for Bongi fans can text her voting number for the duration of the competition, 01, to 37400, or dial *120*33033# and, 09, for Vincent. Fans can also vote for free on WeChat or on the Idols mobi site or on the Idols X website at www.mnet.co.za/idolssa.
