Idols 16: Ndoni eliminated from Final Four chorus line

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


This was Ndoni's motto before the Top 16.

Is it still true for her after being eliminated from Idols? It should be.

Things aren't impossible when they're right for You and clearly winning Idols isn't what Ndoni should do.

Here's what happened after she left the show on Sunday (22 November):

The contestants paid homage to the music stable that might just be their home if they win the competition -  Kalawa Jazmee - and performed songs by artists who have been part of the record label over the years. The second half of the show featured a favourite from last year - The Mzansi Gay Choir.

The contestants paid homage to the music stable that might just be their home if they win the competition -  Kalawa Jazmee - and performed songs by artists who have been part of the record label over the years.

The second half of the show featured a favourite from last year - The Mzansi Gay Choir.

ZanoThando opened the evening’s performances on a high note, receiving all round praise for his first performance - Via Orlando by DJ Vetkuk vs Mahoota featuring Dr Malinga.

Randall Abrahams commended him for the brilliant song choice, which allowed him to focus on his strengths.

Unathi uWeepy (Ed) said this was his best vocal yet, while Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung remarked he should stick to local music if he wants to win the competition.

He impressed the judges once again when he returned in the second half of the show to perform Caiphus Semenya’s Angelina with the Mzansi Gay Choir.

Unathi said he had managed to stand out from his backing vocalists, while Somizi said he was on fire. Randall was pretty sure this was the Showstopper week.
 
Mr Music was next, with a soulful performance of Mafikizolo’s Emlanjeni. Unathi said she believed he had secured his spot in the finale, while Somizi said he had lived up to his name, giving him his ultimate nod of approval with a Whoo Shem!, prompted by Unathi and echoed by Randall.

He returned to sing Stimela Sase Zola by Mbongeni Ngema, with Somizi jumping out of this seat for a standing ovation and Randall saying his performance was on another level. Unathi could only utter her praise in isiXhosa.
 
The only surviving woman in the competition, Zama, performed Boom Shaka’s Thobela. While Somizi loved her vocals, he felt she had fallen short with her performance. “Vocally you killed it - it was fresh, young and current,” he said, with Randall agreeing with him.

Unathi added that viewers needed much more from her if she was to make it further in the competition.

She redeemed herself in the second half of the show, though, when backed by the Mzansi Gay Choir, she performed Sweet Dreams by Beyoncé. Both Randall and Unathi commended her for her performance, with Somizi saying it was a beautiful performance.
 
Brandon rounded off the top four with yet another round of impressive performances, which prompted Randall to remark that he had been consistent throughout the competition.

Singing Ndlovu by DJ Zinhle featuring Loyiso, Randall was joined by Unathi and Somizi in his praise. Unathi said he had chosen a song that spoke to his audience, adding that the performance was flawless. Somizi had just one word to add. “Amazing.”

He returned with Toosie Slide by Drake, and once again, the judges were impressed. Unathi remarked he had annihilated the competition with his song choice, while Somizi commended him for his versatility. Randall said the song sounded like his own record.
 
Voting lines to vote for the Top 3 are open all week.
