Idols bid goodbye to Mangaliso Gumbi, who failed to get enough votes to make it to the Top 6. And with just a few weeks to go to the finale, the pressure is on for the remaining contestants to prove that they have what it takes to be the next South African Idol. And there’s no better week to show the goods than on Showstopper Night – arguably the most anticipated evening of the competition.
Our Top 6 contestants certainly did their best to set the stage on fire. With the evening already amped up by the judges, who took to the stage to show off their outfits, and the Top 7 group performance of Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’s Old Town Road – it was all set for the contestants to bring it.
Mmangaliso was given an opportunity to perform with the group that kick off the show with Old Town Road songs.
“That was my favourite group performance; it was such a fun song to sing. It is one of the biggest songs right now around the world. I had so much fun with that song, and I enjoyed every moment of it, and I was doing it with the other contestants who are great singers and amazing people.” Mmangaliso said
