Idols SA 2021 (Season 17) Episode 8: Top 16 Group A Performances
The Top 16 contestants of Group A opened up the live show phase of this season in episode 8 of Idols SA season 17 with the biggest songs of today.
This Sunday was the first day of a live show (live stage performances) in season 17, the Top 16 contestants of Group A performed in a more intimate setting, with the audience being made up of just a few of their family members and the Idols SA judges.
The guest judge this Sunday was the talented songwriter, vocalist and DJ, Lady Du.
From now onwards, the contestants will rely on viewers and fans at home to vote for them to see them to the next round, they won’t rely on the judges anymore.
The music theme for this week was “The Biggest Hits Of Today”, with the contestants performing some of the most popular songs of these days.
The first performance of the evening was a combined group effort from all the contestants in Group A of the Top 16, it was a brilliant performance and we rocked with them when their stardom wouldn’t let them sleep.
