Idols SA Season 9 is down to only five contenders for the title, and this week at the Moreleta Park Church Auditorium in Pretoria the Top 5 will each perform two songs: a hit from the Nineties (90s) and a hit from the Naughties ('00s).

BRENDEN LEDWABA (19) from Graskop in Mpumalanga [@brenden_praise], hit the Bottom 3 for the first time last week and he chose Usher’s “Nice And Slow” from the Nineties and “Jailer” from the Nigerian singer-songwriter A?a with which to redeem himself.

BUNNY MAJAJA (26) from Florida Glen in Johannesburg [@BunnyMajaja] chose Robin S’s 1990 hit “Show Me Love” and a more recent local hit, “Ndiredi” from Simphiwe Dana, as her two numbers.

MUSA SUKWENE (26) from eMalahleni in Mpumalanga [@musathevoice] is going to “Bump And Grind” like R. Kelly back in the Nineties and for his Naughties hit he selected Dave Hollister’s “Can’t Stay”.

SONKE MAZIBUKO (21) from Soweto [@sonke_mazibuko] is covering The Fugees’ version of “Killing Me Softly”, which was a massive hit back in 1995, and then he’ll go upbeat with Michael Bublé’s “Haven’t Met You Yet”.

And 19-year-old ZOË ZANA from Bishop Lavis in Cape Town [@zoe_zana] is going old-school with the Janet Jackson’s classic “Together Again”, before rocking out with Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor”.

Tickets for the Top 5 Spectacular at the Moreleta Park Church Auditorium in Pretoria this Friday [1 November] are now available from Computicket.
