Idols SA 12 – Durban took 19 golden tickets – 1 fainted.


Kunzima, Durban kicks off Idols Season 12 #IdolsSA12 with 19 Golden Tickets. It is a very tough competition that many thousands went to the auditions and yet only 19 went through.

Out of the thousands of hopefuls that went in the numbers – one of the ladies fainted – reports says she was overwhelmed.  Social South Africa posted a picture.

Captioned “Gareth Cliff was the only male judge to actually carry a 18 yr old that fainted after she got through in DBN. 👏🏾” (sic)


As usual Tickets were issued by judges Randall Abrahams, Unathi Msengana, Somizi Mhlongo and Gareth Cliff, proving just how tough it is to crack the nod in this Mzansi Magic singing reality show.


Some of the comments from the Judges.



“We are not looking for perfection; we want contestants who are willing to learn and grow throughout the competition. With that said, we know there’s a lot of talent out there so we’re not going to waste time giving space to people who won’t stand a fighting chance come Theatre Week,”


“Durban definitely got Season 12 auditions off to a fine start. Now we can’t wait to see what the rest of the regions have to offer,”

Season 12, Siyaba’Enterisha!
