During the last Live Results Show
(21 August), Monde, Chloe and Dominic received the least number of votes.
After Monde was declared ‘safe’, show host, ProVerb, revealed that a mere 36 votes separated Chloe and Dominic. Unfortunately for Chloe, the votes were not in her favour.
Chloe handled everything with much elegance and style. She took to Facebook to send a message to her fans:
Ah guys! Don't be sad for me. This is the way the competition works, in the end there is only one winner! I'm incredibly grateful for all of you and this phenomenal experience that I've been SO blessed to have. My career in music starts right now, I promise you haven't seen the last of me. Thank you all SO much for all your support and all the beautiful words...really means everything to me. I'm leaving this competition a stronger and more enlightened person, not to mention musician. Thank you Idols South Africa! The friends I've made here are friends for life. Couldn't have asked for anything more.
