I was disappointed to read in Sowetan on April 14 that "Thembi's Idols fairy tale ends".
Though I was not moved by her performance, I am wondering why your report claims that the reason why black competitors like Thembi did not get more votes is because black people don't have DStv and can therefore not vote.
Thembi is a diva and is original. Lendel Moonsamy should go home because his imitations of other top singers is dismal.
There were some pitch problems and the singing was flat. But tough, Thembi.
