Why Idols SA don't give out tickets for Wooden Mic to compete?



Wooden Mic has more audience than actual Idols it would be better if they select 10 Wooden Mic nominees to compete live for Wooden Mic award. If Idols SA can implement this we see their viewers double the number they currently have. Just only first 10 minutes of their Sunday time to must be dedicated for Wooden Mic's . What do you think is the fair to get winner of Wooden Mic by just only one performance. 


Episode 2 of Idols SA season 12 saw a chunk of singing hopefuls coming out swinging at the notoriously severe judge, Randall Abrahams.

Scores of amateur singers descended onto the State Theatre in Pretoria to take their chance at being Mzansi’s next Idol, with many vowing to impress the infamously difficult-to-please Randall, who hardly gets moved by the vocal gymnastics in front of him.

Save for a few precious thumbs up that were few and far between, Randall was at his pessimistic best as he dished out the “no” with abandon. In fact, it became such a standard response that he resorted to peppering the word with gems like “YOU CAN’T SING”, “DON’T EVER SING AGAIN” and “STOP SINGING, PERIOD!”

Ironically, it was two teenagers from far-flung provinces who brought some animation to Randall and were among the few who received his precious “yes” vote.

Shanice May, 19, from Bloemfontein sang a winning rendition of Drake’s Hotline Bling while Tshegofatso Mashilangwako, 18, from Mpumalanga awed them with Golden by Jill Scott.

A trio of Christian worship sisters upped the ante in the audition room, their harmonising sounded like a celestial choir. Fortunately all three managed to impress individually as well, and will be off to battle it out during Theatre Week.

Another pleasant surprise was the oh-so-cool hipster Simon “Ginger” Nkosi from Diepkloof, Soweto. The judges were taken aback by his performance of Ray Charles’ Hit the Road Jack. While Randall wasn’t too chuffed with the song choice, Gareth Cliff, Somizi Mhlongo and Unathi Msengana were suitably impressed by the 22 year-old.

By the end of a long day, the judges issued 21 Golden Tickets in Pretoria, joining the 19 from last week’s Durban auditions.

Next week it’s on to the Mother City to see if the sea and the mountain are harbouring some of the best singing talent in Mzansi, so don’t miss out!

Not even Keletso, who apparently sang massage music from the Far East and sounded like a whale, could match Ayanda’s talent. We’re not sure who is better though; Mbishop or Ayanda? You be the judge.

Soon we will be addressing Petrick as a hit maker, Bless My Sweating was indeed a hit, and the message was very good. We hope one of our talented DJs does a remix with this one because it promises to be a summer jam.

If we could all be as determined and hard-working as Ayanda, we would be far in life. Ayanda auditioned for a wooden mic in season 10 of the show and sang the hit song Orlando. Idols was kind enough to remind us, and, we must say, he did put up a performance and definitely deserved that wooden mic, though he said he never got it, as it got lost in the mail. So, he came back to defend his title and sang “wash me nene”.

Not even Keletso, who apparently sang massage music from the Far East and sounded like a whale, could match Ayanda’s talent. We’re not sure who is better though; Mbishop or Ayanda? You be the judge.
