With the much expected controversies and laughs, the Idols Season 16 began its search for a winner in Cape Town with Somizi, Cassper Nyovest, Randall Abrahams, Unathi Nkayi to be judges at the audition.
Things got heated up when Somizi placed a bet on a contestant that he liked. Saying “if Curly Sue didn’t makes it, he would run around the building in his underwear”. This he said even before hearing if Curly Sue could sing or not.
After Curly Sue’s attempt at Alicia Key’s rendition of “Woman’s Worth”, which Randall Abrahams gave the thumbs down, saying she “discarded and disposed the original song’s melody”, Somizi was sent on a marathon after he lost the bet and this kept everyone amused.
