Jody wins ‘Idols’

2007-12-10 00:00

But the young singer tucked her arm in and held it all together for the final minutes as she celebrated victory over fellow Capetonian Andriette Norman (21).

In an episode characterised by some good performances (as well as some ear-wrenching ones), it was Williams who was also announced as the opening act of the upcoming Celine Dion tour of South Africa.

Ironically, her first audition for the Idols show was Dion’s hit song That’s The Way It Is.

The young singer, who is still at school, will be starting work on recording an album with major record label Sony BMG, part of the deal of the winner’s prize, along with her new sporty Citroën (which she can’t drive yet), mp4 player, laptop computer and Shure microphone.

While most of her predecessors have faded into the world of corporate gigs and functions, it remains to be seen if the hype surrounding the fourth Idols winner will produce a real musical star.
