Idols SA makes history on Sunday by putting twins Viggy and Virginia Qwabe through to the top 17.
The two identical songstresses went through arguably the toughest part of the contest last week, when the top 32 were judged on their performances in theater week.
One by one, the contestants took a long walk down the aisle to find out whether they had made it to the next round. With yays and nays, fan favourites were soon booted out of the competition, while others made it through.
Seen giving each other moral support throughout the competition, Viggy and Virginia were the last contestants to hear the judges’ verdict. The twins were both excited and nervous before they announced that the girls were both talented and they couldn’t decide.
They then decided to put them both through to the top 17, which will allow Mzansi to make a call on their favorite. The decision by the judges sparked excitement on social media, as people chose to stan with them.
