“SHE DID THAT!”| American Singer Jennifer Hudson Endorses Idols SA Contestant
United States singer and actress Jennifer Hudson has endorsed an Idols South Africa contestant after a breathtaking performance.
Jennifer Hudson was utterly blown away by Idols SA contestant Nozi Sibiya, who serenaded Mzansi with a rendition of the American singer’s song Giving Myself on 11 September.
Twenty-seven-year-old Nozi made it into the Top 9 on 18 September after she performed Thandiswa Mazwai’s Nizalwa Ngobani.
The other contestants who stormed the Top 9 are Zee, Thapelo, Ty Loner, Tesmin-Robyn, Ceejay, Mpilwenhle, Kabelo, and Noxolo.
Nozi’s performance of Giving Myself reached and gripped Jennifer Hudson, and she said had she been present during the show, she would have thrown a shoe at her. She gushed on Twitter:
Ok, I’m a little late, but yal need to hear this! Nozi on @IdolsSA performed my song “Giving Myself.” If I was there, she would have caught a shoe! 👠 She did that!!!
South Africans on Twitter glowingly appreciated Nozi in the comments.
🔥🔥OMG! I hope she doesn’t win! She deserves a proper music career. IdolsSA winners just disappear into the abyss.
We couldn’t watch live on Tv cause there’s load shedding happening in SA😩
We’re just that Good. We can sound like You, Beyoncé, Mariah, and everybody…
This song means so much to me – 10 years ago at the age of 45 I walked down the aisle to this song to marry my soulmate. When I heard this song, I was like that is exactly how I feel – this is exactly what I’m doing – it still makes me feel like that today xx
Fellow South Africans, let’s gather under one umbrella and ask u sis Jennifer to adopt our girl with immediate effect
