After a show-stopping rendition of Alicia Key’s Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart last week Yanga hit the stage with a local classic Letta Mbulu’s Amakhamandela (Not Yet Uhuru).

Like babalas on a Monday after a heavy weekend, Yanga’s performance on Idols hit us hard.
We weren’t the only ones. All three judges giving her a standing ovation.
Ladies and gentlemen, Yanga did not come here to play games…. #IdolsSA
RETWEET if you enjoyed her performance tonight.. pic.twitter.com/UegB6nVJ2K

The social media streets were also a mess after the performance with some even comparing her to Unathi in both style and delivery.
Others suggested Idols save the people’s data and just crown Yanga the winner now.
Yanga gave us the lion-king feel. Jealous down this girl is beyond gifted. Unathi is probably salivating where she's seated. Unathi is really blessed to watch her role-model this up-close. #IdolsSA pic.twitter.com/Hpc3uQGzQp

It was a bad night for Lincoln who was booted off the show after an underwhelming performance. But it was King B who may have taken the biggest L.
The singer who everyone thought was destined for the title gave a lukewarm performance and even a last ditch attempt at winning support with his trademark vosho nearly flopping.
