More than a 1500 Idols hopefuls pitched at the Durban auditions of the popular talent search competition, making it one of the best attended regional auditions.
Radio and television personality, Phat Joe, was impressed by a 16-year-old contestant whose chances of making it to Theatre Week went from zero to “hell yeah!” thanks to the Golden Disc.
The Golden Disk is a new addition to Idols, which gives a judge the power to put a contestant through to Theatre Week without the consent of the other judges.
“I’m looking for someone with presence and that x-factor, and I’m not here to find a session musician. I’m looking for the full package,” he said.
Will Durban score a coup by producing another Idols SA winner? Or maybe someone from the Friendly City, Port Elizabeth, will take it?
Only time will tell.
