Idols 16.



Where were you a year ago during Idols 15? 

And next thing, here we are... at the Top 16 of Season 16. 

The season's finalists were announced during Sunday's show (13 September), which debuted a good idea: a Top 16 music video.

Here's a close-up on The Chosen Ones, followed by their vid... see what their mottos reveal about them and their potential on the show:


"The greatness you see in me is a reflection of you."


"Live each and every day as if it's your last, because tomorrow is never guaranteed."


"It takes a lot of courage to get to the top, but without character you won't last."



"They'll realise later! Also, time wasted never returns."


Ethan wasn't asked to give a motto but what inspires him:

"What inspires me from others is seeing them pursue their dreams and passions. Someone who lives and strives to showcase and share their talents and who they are."



"Strive to become a better or greater version of who you are today."



"I have two. Never feel entitled to win – always keep the hunger and the universe is always listening, your dreams are valid."



"If God placed it for me, nobody can take it away from me."


"Every day is a second chance."


"It always seems impossible until it's done. You can do it."



"Carpe diem (Seize the day)."



"My late mom taught me that, 'If it doesn’t come from the heart, it’s not worth it.' So before I do anything, I check in with my heart first."



"Always fight for what you believe in."



"Hard work, prayer and thankfulness are the keys to a life you dream of."



"Do unto others as you'd like done to you."



"Umfan' o gcwel' incasa taste baby."
