We were so thrilled to have John Legend on the Idols stage in Episode 13
. He opened up the show with his hit, “Tonight (Best You Ever Had)” before the Idols Contestants had their turn on stage.
John also performed at an exclusive concert where Idols Judge, Unathi, was the opening act.
This is the star’s second visit to the country since his 2009 stopover. Before he arrived in the country, he tweeted:
Heading to South Africa in the morning. Finally!! It's been a long time coming. Too long. – John Legend.
Watch him on the Idols stage again:
He advised the Idols Contestants to: “Take advantage of the opportunities Idols gives you, always pick the right songs and perform at your best each week. Always work on being the best you can be.”
South Africans took to twitter to express their admiration for the nine-time Grammy winner:
@IdolsSA John Legend is even more captivating on our South African soil! - Gugu Zwane Gugu Zwane.
@IdolsSA John Legend was amazing! WOW! - diana chimhundu.

When he returned home, he thanked his fans via Twitter again:
