WATCH | Fans tell 'Idols SA' judges to take a hike after they criticise Qwabe twins
Fans were just about ready to cancel Idols SA judges Somizi and Unathi on Sunday, after they criticised Virginia Qwabe's performance.
Virginia, a firm fan favourite alongside her twin sister, Viggy, showed her versatility with a performance of the hit, Umsindo.
Meanwhile, Viggy covered Distruction Boyz’s gqom hit Amaxoki.
While many fans were stannin' hard over the performance and compared Virginia to the late Brenda Fassie, the judges were far less impressed.
Unathi said Virginia seemed distracted, while Somizi said he was not feeling Viggy's performance and Randall reminded her that this was a competition.
It's the judges' job to critique the talent, but fans were touched and soon flooded social media with memes and messages, telling them to get their ears tested.
They said the twins had performed well and should “ignore the haters”.
Others cast more votes than before for the pair to prove the judges wrong.
Somizi's unfair comment on Viggy's performance brought me here. 50 votes for Viggy (Her perfomance didn't get enough credit). 50 votes for Virginia. The twins are ready to be booked and perform for their fans now. #IdolsSA #1stTimeVoter pic.twitter.com/jPiOIH8ahp— Quibell Ramantswana (@QuibellSA) September 22, 2019
