A lot of people want to know when does Idols SA 2022 (Season 18) start on DStv?
Well, Idols SA 2022 (Season 18) is definitely going to happen this year primarily because the online auditions already took place and the submissions were closed earlier on in February.
Another convincing fact that the show is definitely going to take place this year is the fact that the judges’ panel has been already revamped with new judges, with rapper JR Bogopa and actress Thembi Seete being revealed at a Press Conference that was held last week on Wednesday 16 February 2022 in Johannesburg.
The two new judges mentioned above are replacing Randall Abrahams and Unathi Nkayi who left the show after Mzansi Magic didn’t renew their contracts.
Fan-favorite Somizi Mhlongo is also coming back to the judges’ panel after serving a suspension, making it a total of three judges. This is obviously a major boost for the show’s ratings which were reported to have plummeted last season after he was asked to step away in order to take care of his family affairs.
What is the start date of Idols SA Season 18?
Idols SA 2022 is scheduled to start on DSTV on Sunday 17 July 2022, the show will then air for four months and then conclude towards the end of November.
As always, the ever magnificent ProVerb (Tebogo Thapelo Sidney Thekisho) is returning as the host for the 13th season.
