She got the biggest nod of all. Idols contestant Nozi Sibiya covered Jennifer Hudson's Giving Myself song during the show and the Dream Girls star loved it. 

The Durban-born and raised singer Nozi first entered Idols SA in 2016 but did not make it beyond the first cut.

Now she is back for Season 18 with hopes of making it to the top.

With an endorsement from international Grammy award-winning artist Jennifer, she's already a winner. 

Jennifer sung Nozi's praises, saying she ‘did that’.

“Ok I’m a little late but yal need to hear this ! Nozi on @IdolsSA  performed my song “Giving Myself.” If I was there she would have caught a shoe ! She did that !!!"
