But before they find "the one with the golden voice", they discover some spirited individuals who take Idols
to a new dimension. The voices in their head are far more impressive and entertaining than the ones filling the audition room. Then there's also starstruck, giggling, Dean Joshua Thomas, who literally "grabbed" his opportunity to sneak a handful of Gareth’s gym-toned celebrity-gluteus maximus!
Meanwhile, the newly-appointed MD of Universal Music South Africa, Randall Abrahams, gets a new name from contestants. Make sure you're tuned in right at the start of the show at 17:30 to find out what they call Randall. However, Randall was battling a head cold and thus was in no mood for nonsense and devised a way to deal with wannabe Idols
he wanted to disappear from the room.
Between the over-familiar fans, the cross-dressers and the show-offs in adult nappies, the Idols
judges did manage to unearth 29 pretty amazing voices to put through to the next round – the Theatre Phase at Sun City. Who will they be?
