Voting Error

A voting error involving misinformation occurred during the Group 1’s voting period with Ivan Roux and Vincent Verhoog’s profiles aired with each other’s voting numbers, that affected whether one of them had achieved the fourth spot to go to the Top 10. Therefore, in the best interest of the competition, the Producers of Idols SA put both of them into a Top 11, and only three of the remaining 6 contestants from Group 1 were eligible to advance to the Top 11 on the Public’s vote.

Prior to the Voting Error, the Top 10 would consist of 8 contestants selected from the two Groups by the Public, and 2 contestants selected by the Judges as their Wildcard picks. This mechanic stayed after the Voting Error was discovered in Group 1’s voting period. Demi Lee Moore and Roxy Mc Vean were chosen by the Judges to advance to the Top 11.
