Top 2 Contestants of Idols SA 2022 (Season 18)
The Idols SA Season 18 Top 2 contestants have been revealed today on Sunday 6 November 2022 during episode 17 of the season.
Last week on Sunday 30 October 2022 during episode 16 of Idols SA Season 18, the Top 3 contestants performed three songs each under the themes, “Divas and Divos”, “My Audition Song” and “Judges’ Choice”.
The Idols SA Season 18 Top 2 contestants are; Thapelo Molomo and Nozi Sibiya.
Regrettably, 24-year-old Mpilwenhle Mokopu from Katlehong, Gauteng has been eliminated from Idols SA Season 18.
We bid farewell to Mpilwenhle but she is most definitely going to be one to watch in the music industry.
But before being evicted from the competition, tonight Mpilwenhle dropped the Idols SA premiere of her brand new single “Ngiyazifela”.
Mpilwenhle’s performance was extremely refreshing to the extent that judge Somizi Mhlongo couldn’t hide his love and excitement for the song.

For his third and final performance of the evening, Thapelo performed his favourite song of the entire season. He did The Beatles proud by taking on their hit single, “Let It Be”.
Judge JR was clearly impressed by Thapelo’s take on The Beatles’ song, even saying that he thinks this is the toughest Idols SA Top 2 ever.
For her first performance of the evening, Nozi treated the Idols SA audiences to the very first performance of her debut single “Idliso”.
Judge JR Bogopa thought this was a good song for Nozi voice.
For her second performance of the evening, Nozi delivered her own rendition of “Moments Away” by Mango Groove.
And as expected, she received slack-jawed reactions from all the judges.
For her third and final performance of the evening, Nozi performed her favourite song of the season by delivering a great rendition of “Giving Myself” by Jennifer Hudson.
