Nqobile Gumede from KwaMashu auditioned for the 12th season of the popular reality show but fainted after the judges told her she wasn’t going to the next round of the auditions.
“I am prepared to put my studies on hold this year if I get a ticket today to continue my journey,” she told the judges.
After her audition, the judges were not impressed and she did not get a golden ticket. Judge Somizi Mhlongo said she was not ready for Idols although “there was something there”.
He said: “You’re not ready, my girl. My advice is go to medical school and concentrate on that for now. I think you’re a clever girl and that is why you got accepted at medical school. My advice is go study and after seven years, you will be 25 and still ready to enter Idols.”
Nqobile stared at the judges and then collapsed.
She was carried out by Gareth Cliff with the assistance of fellow judge Unathi Msengana and the M-Net crew members. Hopefully she gets better soon.
