It’s official! It’s the year of the comeback, with Berry and Karabo battling it out tonight to be the last woman standing in next week’s Idols SA finale.

It has been a lengthy journey for both, one that started long before this year’s competition and tonight, the top 2 demonstrated one last time that true talent does not remain hidden forever.

Among the 15,000 Idols SA hopefuls that the two finalists left behind is S’22Kile, who bowed out tonight, having made it all the way to the top 3. But S’22Kile does not walk away empty handed – she is guaranteed a record deal with Kalawa Jazmee Records.

Tonight, she gave Mzansi a taste of what she has to offer, performing her first original single, ‘Falling’ before exiting the show.

Karabo and Berry also performed their first singles, delighting both the judges and the audience. Karabo’s spiritual offering – ‘Hosanna’ – was a hit with judge Randall Abrahams, who said she knocked it out of the park, while guest judge Msaki called Karabo’s voice “anointed”. Berry wowed the judges with her Zulu single, ‘Ungowami’, with both Unathi Nkayi and Msaki commending her for treating the language with reverence and respect.

The remainder of the show took fans down memory lane, with the top 2 revisiting songs they had performed earlier, including their audition songs. Karabo sang ‘Ndidinge’ by Cici, while Berry – or Maberana, as she was affectionately nicknamed tonight – sang ‘Never Enough’, from the Greatest Showman soundtrack.

Their last performance was a reboot of the Showstopper week, with Karabo performing Aretha Franklin’s ‘Respect’ and Berry bowling over Msaki with Christina Aguilera’s ‘Something’s Got A Hold On Me’.

Berry and Karabo will return to the stage next week to revel in their success while thrilling Idols SA fans one last time during the finale, which will also feature surprise performances by some of Mzansi’s biggest artists.

The votes will have been counted and all that will remain will be to announce who gets to join this impressive list of music greats as season 17’s Idols SA winner.
