The Voice SA has announced their top 8, with no less than FIVE singers from Cape Town.
On Sunday night, the game changed.
Coaches LIRA, Riky Rick, Riana Nel and Francois van Coke could only offer encouraging feedback on their talents’ performances, because they have lost the power to push through singers.
From now on, it’s up to viewers to decide who they want to carry on.
This week’s round of voting ends at 10pm Tuesday night, and on Sunday the singer who receives the least amount of votes will have to leave.
The Top 8 are Capeys PJ Twins, 26, from Bonteheuwel; Tasché Burger, 18, from Brackenfell; Anslin Gysman, 23, from Kuils River; Amy Tjasink, 26, from Cape Town; and Soné Joubert, 27, from Gordon’s Bay; with Yahto Kraft, 18, from Alberton; Eon Claude le Roux, 27, and Siki Jo-Ann Qwazi, 25, both from Port Elizabeth.
First up to perform on Sunday was Amy who was saved by her coach Riky Rick last week.
Amy sang the LeAnn Rimes hit Can’t Fight The Moonlight and said: “I feel so grateful and humbled to have been given the opportunity to make it this far.”
Last week, LIRA used her final Coaches’ Save to keep the PJ Twins in the competition.
They sang Vincero Perdero and hope it is enough to keep them in the running.
“We have worked so hard over the past few weeks and here we are, but this is no time to take our foot off the pedals,” they said.
Coach Francois van Coke’s final save last week, Tasché, earned herself a standing ovation with the Miley Cyrus hit Wrecking Ball.
Francois said it was a beautiful performance and that South Africa already loves Tasché.
Anslin performed Beyoncé’s Halo and Francois said the performance gave him goosebumps.
Anslin said reaching the Top 8 felt “surreal”.
Soné impressed the coaches with a spirited rendition of Johannes Kerkorrel’s Halala.
“I never expected to make it this far in the competition and I feel blessed,” the singer said.
The show airs on channel 101 every Sunday at 5.30pm.
