M-Net and Mzansi Magic reveal Idols SA voting figures
Winner Vincent Bones lead the pack of talented Idols SA singers right from time the voting started, with runner-up Bongi Silinda hot on his heels and the other contestants giving their all to stay in the running. Towards the end of the Idols race, Bongi overtook Vincent for one week and the final two Idols' stamina and determination to win resulted in one of the closest victories in the history of the show. 
M-Net and Mzansi Magic release the voting figures each season as soon as the winner has completed the majority of the post-Idols PR and, keeping its promise to fans, the results were made public today. 
"While the show is still on air, we cannot disclose the contestants' exact results as it might have an impact on the weekly voting," explains M-Net Director Victor Eckard, "but throughout the competition we were bowled over by the way in which the passion and enthusiasm of the fans rewrote Idols SA voting history time and again. Idols SA remains a winning recipe and the most popular reality show on pay-television."
Idols SA Season 10 received a total of 24,364, 245 votes, which is a 236% increase from Season 9's  and an all-time Idols SA record. Fans cast a combined 1,475 657 votes during the group phase and across the ten spectaculars the numbers increased week after week, culminating in a whopping and unprecedented 4,459,561 votes during the final. (See weekly totals below).
Nkateko Mabaso, Director: M-Net Local Interest Channels which includes Mzansi Magic, contributes the success of Season 10 to several factors: "This year's Top 10 was an incredibly talented and diverse group that struck a special chord with viewers, but the fact that we made it as easy as possible for viewers to vote with a variety of platforms and the introduction of free voting on the increasingly popular WeChat certainly also played a significant role in achieving these amazing results. With so much support these contestants are well positioned for successful possible careers in the South African music industry."
