The singing reality show’s auditions took place in Cape Town at the Grand West Casino, and the first episode was aired on Sunday. This season features returning judges Randall Abrahams, Unathi Msengana and Somizi Mhlongo, but Gareth Cliff did not return, as he has resigned. He has been replaced with a couple of guest judges such Donald, Kelly Khumalo and Khaya Mthethwa.
This year show added a bit of a twist by introducing The Golden Disc get-out-of-jail free card that allows the judging panel to bump up a contestant to Theatre Week, even if the other judges say no.
Seems like this season is not going to be as exciting as the previous ones, as viewers had mixed reactions while watching the two-hour show.

The only reason Unathi cries so much is because she also misses Date My Family .. pic.twitter.com/GhEqlN4j2u
