Nosipho loses Idols vote
WE CALLED IT: Nosipho might want to forget her disastrous performance
The bubbly 'farm girl' from Soshanguve, 21-year-old Nosipho Mngomezulu, has been voted off the Idols show, M-Net said in a statement.
Even though the Top 9 contestants' musical mentor, Tamara Dey, couldn't fault her performance of Bruno Mars's "Grenade" in Sunday's Top 9 Spectacular, Nosipho was the contestant who received the fewest votes, and her Idols road had to come to an end.
But first, before the bad news was announced, Tamara Dey and Flash Republic got the Idols audience on their feet with a rousing performance of their hit, "We're The Kids", with Idols Musical Director Martin Schofield on guitar.

The Top 8 Spectacular will be recorded at the Home Of Idols, the Mosaïek Teatro, on Friday, 17 August, and broadcast at 17:30 on Sunday, 19 August.
