Cape Town – The gloves are off as the 'Idols SA' top 17 contestants fight for your vote to make it to the top 10.
On Sunday night's episode, nine contestants took to the stage at The State Theatre in Pretoria.
For the opening number group, A gave a rousing performance with their rendition of AKA's Fela in Versace.

The theme of the show was Trending, which meant contestants had to sing songs that have set social media on fire over the past few years.
HERE ARE OUR TOP 3 PERFORMANCES OF THE EVENING
This was the performance of the night! Her rendition of Themba by Kelly Khumalo got her a standing ovation from the audience. We have to agree with Somizi she is the perfect star.
Can we call her the comeback kid? After not making it through to this round last year Dinky came in swinging. Her performance of Get You by Daniel Caesar was soulful and sexy.
Just when we thought the guys weren't doing too well, Nolo rocked the stage with Khalid's Talk. His vocals were smooth, and he looked in total control on stage.
Voting lines are officially open. Five contestants with the most votes automatically get into the Top 10. Next week, the four contestants with the most votes will also secure their place in the Top 10, with one spot being reserved for the wildcard entry – the contestant from either week who gets the highest number of votes.
