Our Top 4 Noma, Terra, Tebogo and Thami are joined by our host with the most ProVerb on a once in a lifetime trip to the big apple.



Our Idols visited the iconic Apollo Theatre in Harlem yesterday. The theatre is widely renowned for launching the careers of several African American legends such as Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and the God father of soul James Brown, at a time when there was overt segregation and racism in the entertainment industry.

James Brown's tenure at the theatre was so iconic that his memorial service in 2006 remains the only one ever held in the venue. We're sure it was a thrillng and enlightening experience for our Idols.


The work must go on!

The Top 4 got the rare opportunity of rehearsing at Platinum Sound Recording Studios in the heart of New York City. Platinum Sound Recording Studio was founded in 2000 by Wyclef Jean of The Fugees and Jerry ‘Wonda’ Duplessis, multi-platinum Grammy Award winning producer. 

Since its establishment, Platinum Sound Recording Studios has been the birthplace for countless Grammy Award-winning records and albums, receiving a collective 12 Grammy nominations in 2010 alone. "Everyone from Justin Bieber to Kanye West has come through our doors, seeking our production and engineering expertise"
