Judges commend Erin Fourie as fan club mushrooms

2011-08-08 00:00

WORKING a white top, black tie and a non-stereotypical genre, Erin Fourie stepped out of her comfort zone and cranked out a stellar rendition of Hey Ya, the chart-topper by hip-hop duo Outkast.

The judges commended her for her effort in breaking the mould, and social networking streams on Facebook and Twitter were bursting at the seams (“having an aneurysm”, as Erin would say) in rallying supporters to vote by SMS for her. The group named the “Erin Fourie Fan Club” now boasts over 2 700 members and is growing rapidly.

Another KZN favourite, Phaksy, tipped his hat to Amercian rockers Nickelback and belted out their number one hit How You Remind Me, which had the judges raving, halfway through the show.

If the judges’ feedback is anything to go by, current front-runners after last night’s show are Gauteng’s Dave van Vuuren and Kerry Sanssoucie. Van Vuuren performed Sex on Fire by Kings of Leon and Sanssoucie performed Will Young’s Leave Right Now, both “in a league all of their own”, according to Randall Abrahams.

To vote for Erin Fourie, SMS 13 to 37400. To vote for Phaksy, SMS 10 to 37400.

Voting lines close at 10 pm tonight, and the live results show airs at 7.30 pm on M-Net tomorrow.
