Thousands upon thousands of aspiring singers queued in cities all across South Africa early this year for just a shot at competing and this week, live at the State Theatre in Pretoria, it all comes down to just two finalists.

Vincent Bones (30) from Pietermaritzburg is among the finalists who have been working hard all week to prepare three songs each for Sunday’s Top 2 Spectacular of the historic tenth season of Idols South Africa.

This Sunday, (November 16), the Top 2 Idols Season 10 finalists will each perform the brand new hit that has been written especially for them; a song that the judges, Randall Abrahams, Unathi Msengana and Gareth Cliff, chose for them; and then a new and hopefully much improved interpretation of the song with which they originally auditioned.

The title of Vincent’s original new song is Let Me Love. The judges picked Ringo Madlingozi’s Sondela for him and his audition song is a mashup of Eminem’s classic Lose Yourself and Adele’s Oscar-winning Bond theme, Skyfall.

The Top 2 Spectacular goes out live on M-Net and Mzanzi Magic on Sunday, November 16, at 17h00, and fans can also look forward to guest performances by The Graeme Watkins Project and Season 9 runner-up, Brendan Ledwaba.
