Season 17

The quest to find Mzansi's next Idol begins when Season 17 premieres, promising drama, fashion, tears, triumphs and unforgettable moments.

The show retains ProVerb as host this season, accompanied by returning judges Unathi, Somizi and Randall Abrahams.

Kwaito artist, producer and musical director Zwai Bala and singer, producer and EFF grandee Ringo Madlingozi are among the guest judges this season.

This season attracted 15,000 online entrants and the season begins with the airing of these auditions.

The season's theme is "Reuniting Mzansi" and all auditions were held online to adhere to COVID-19 safety regulations.

Nineteen-year-old Emalahleni-born singer Zama Khumalo won last year's edition of the competition dubbed "Sweet Sixteen".

In the Season 17 premiere: It's the job of host ProVerb along with judges Unathi, Randall and Somizi - and guest judge Prince KB - to begin the search for the next big star in the SA music scene.
