The dream of winning the Idols may have ended on Monday night for Pixie Bennett, but the singer and songwriter sees a bright future for herself and her band.

Bennett, 25, of Morningside, Durban, was eliminated from the competition after receiving fewer votes than her competitors, despite her impressive performance on Sunday night.

"I am disappointed to exit the competition so early. I would have wanted to go far, but it is the nature of the competition that others get more votes and others don't," she said yesterday.

Bennet has been in the music industry for a long time. She has her own band called The Pixie Bennett Band that comprises three men and herself.

"The band has been in existence for a while and performs at various venues in Durban.

"We do pop, soul and jazz music. I am the composer of the songs."

Bennett said she entered Idols to get exposure.

"I knew that by being part of Idols my group would benefit. Now that I am done with Idols we will focus on performances."

Bennett, who started singing at a young age, enrolled at the University of Cape Town to study music after matric.

"However, I dropped out because I got a six-week contract to perform in Turkey. From there I toured the UK. I started the band when I came back two years ago."
