For the first time this Season, Idol’s Contestants teamed up for sizzling duets – Monde and Tshidi went up on stage first, singing Jennifer Hudson, Ne-Yo and Rick Ross’s “Think Like A Man”. Khaya and Melissa followed with Lady Antebellum’s massive hit, “Need You Now”.
The Judges were almost as impressed as the audience. Randall said to Tshidi and Monde: “Sometimes when there’s a pairing of singers, they bring out the best in each other.” And that is high praise, coming from him!
