Idols SA 2021 (Season 17) Episode 9: Top 16 Group B Performances
The second live show of season 17 took place on Sunday 5 September 2021 in episode 9.
The episode 9 guest judge was non other than the talented Buhle Mda who gave us quotables such as ‘bathong wena’ and then… ‘oksalayo!’. She’s walking, breathing, living content.
Our Group B contestants of the Top 16 were looking and moving like superstars as they opened the evening with a group performance of “My Power” by Beyoncé.
Siya Motloung then wrapped his warm vocal cords around “In Your Eyes” by The Weeknd and it got us all in the feels as our eyes were fixed on him.

Up next on stage was Zukisa M who generated goosebumps from the Idols SA stage with a beautiful rendition of “Distance” by Yebba, his performance was gentle and hypnotic and we are sure this young man has already changed the the minds of Mzansi.

Then came Misty who sounded gorgeous on stage as she performed Snoh Aalegra’s soulful “Dying For Your Love”.
