At last night’s Top 2 Performance Show Melissa
sang for your votes for the last time in a bid to become South Africa’s next Idol.
To warm the stage up for the battle that would soon take place, the Top 2 performed a special duet. Khaya
and Melissa sang “No Air’ by Chris Brown and Jordin Sparks.
Watch that performance again here and read what fans had to say about it.
What the fans said:
“Khaya and Melissa, WOW!” - Marlene Kiewitz Rodriques
“They could have done waaaaaaay....better.” - Tiffany Robin Miller
“They are blowing the roof off. They keep getting better and better! I'm loving this.” - Ashley Finest
“I just loved the chemistry between them!” - Carmenita Smith-Phillips
And that chemistry has left many wondering about any romance between our Top 2. Kgomotso Sandra Matokonyane
posted: “I suspect these two will end up marrying each other. Actions speak louder than words. Khaya and Melissa will be an item. Mark my words.”
The first round of last night’s Show saw Melissa take to the stage with her favourite song of the Season, “Gabriel” by Joe Goddard. She says the first time she performed the song, the entire Idols game changed for her.
“I feel like it was a game changer for me. I really picked up my game, gained confidence and pulled myself towards myself,” said Melissa.

The Drakensberg Boys Choir really impressed viewers who just could not stop talking about that show. They returned to the Idols stage last night to perform with the Top 2.
