Idols SA Season 11 Voting Results

The Idols SA Season 11 voting results were released to the public on Monday 7 December 2015.

During Season 11, all previous voting records were smashed week after week, Karabo Mogane emerged as the winner by raking in 54.97% of the votes compared to Mmatema Moremi’s 45.03% in the final week of the competition.

Throughout the season, however, a neck-on-neck race played out between Karabo and runner-up, Mmatema Moremi, who took the lead after the Top 10, Top 8, Top 5, and Top 4 Spectaculars – at some occasions with less than a percentage, and with Rhema Varrie often hot on their heels.

Season 11 of Idols South Africa generated over 78 million votes as opposed to Season 10’s previous record of 24.3 million votes.

“The incredibly high quality of talent, their show-stopping performances, and the fantastic production values of the series, clearly resonated with our audiences,” says M-Net CEO Yolisa Phahle. “Even the singers who didn’t make it to the final received unprecedented votes and we believe that Idols has been an amazing platform for all of them to start a great career in the music industry.”
