In this week’s shocking Live Results Show we bade a sad farewell to Tshidi. She says, given the chance to do it all over again, she wouldn’t change a thing. “I’m proud of what I did on the show,” she says.
She answers some of the questions you sent through on Facebook and Twitter.1. What are your best experiences from Idols competition? - Sandra Rakgoale
It would have to be when I got Randall up and dancing to my tune. That was pretty cool. That was the day I made history in the whole Season of Idols so that was pretty cool.2. What are her plans for the future? Is she going to continue singing? - ??@victoriarossx??
I’ve always aspired to be a singer so I think I’m going to continue. Before this, I was a freelance jewelry designer so this is an opportunity to jump-start my label and see how far that goes.?3. Are you going to look for a recording deal? - Sipho Mqati
Recording deals are looking for me, which is great. At this stage, all the hard work is done. There is a long list that I think I need to take two months off just thinking about which one I’ll go for.4. Tshidi you looked flabbergasted by the outcome but yet you were so strong. What was going through your mind before and after the results? - Bilbil Shampaigne Masombuka
I’m always in shock. These are Tuesdays I never want to relive in my life again. Every Tuesday was always so difficult. It was definitely a shock but we all understand that one has to go home every Tuesday. I was very nervous going into the results and I was shocked for maybe 2 minutes at the most. After that I accepted that I have done well coming this far.5. What do you think made your fans not to vote for you? - Nosiphe Nocie Kwatsha
I think my fans were always voting for me. There will always be a reason that is looked for when one is leaving the competition, but the truth is one has to go. So for whatever reasons I had to go for this time, it’s cool.6. If she were to be given another chance to go at it again, what would she do differently? - Makgape Molepo
I wouldn’t do anything differently. I think people spend their lives trying to live on eggshells, which doesn’t allow one to be better. You just need to take every day as it comes. The word ‘mistake’ exists for us to make those mistakes, it only makes you human. So I wouldn’t do anything differently. I’m proud of what I did on the show.7. Now that you have been voted out, who do you think is going to win South African Idols 2012? - Banathi Mgqoboka
I’m all for girl power! I want my girl Melissa to win. Big up to my boys Khaya and Monde. I love them to bits but it’s only fair that I favour the ladies. 8. Twitter is exploding about Tshidi's "comment" from Sunday. Do you feel it was taken out of context and blown out of proportion? - ?@zaonline??
I definitely feel so. Try standing in front of 2 000 students who took 20 minutes to calm down and just two cameramen. It was very scary for me, I’m not going to lie. And at some points I had decided that ‘ya I’m not getting out of this car because these kids are scaring me’. So take it how you want to, everyone is entitled to their own opinion but that’s what happened. I was freaked out.9. Do you think that your comment about people not jumping on you cost you your chance to be the next Idol? - Tsakie Ndhandhazi MamaShani
No I don’t think so. I think God works in mysterious ways and if this was my time to go, it was going to be that way. If it were meant to be that I win the competition this year, I would have won.10.What did she learn From the last week incident? - Tahleho Stahla Mohlakoana
I have learnt to have at least 5 bouncers (laughs). I’ve learnt that you are human at the end of the day and you will react to what is happening, it’s just funny how it turned out. I made a joke earlier that my first album should be “Don’t Jump On Me”(laughs). But I learnt that I under-estimated the power of the media. And I’d like to think that they had to take out the main competition, which was me (laughs).11. Do you feel that the public has judged you harshly? - Tumi Mfikwe-Mmolawa
Yes I do think the public judged me too harshly. This is a singing competition and we get up on stage and people only get to see that side of what going on. It’s just unfortunate that people will judge you with a clip of 2 seconds and not find out what everything that went on was about. I do feel I was judged harshly. I love kids. I work at a day-care. It’s just funny, it was even a shock to me.
