Another Tuesday night, another goodbye…
After a round of countrywide voting, Tumi Lesejane received the least number of votes and tonight we said farewell to her, reducing the Top 10 to nine. The Judges also opted not to use the “save option”.
She has come far in the competition, often getting high praise from Randall, a Judge who is sometimes difficult to please. But after performing the Berlin ballad “Take My Breath Away”, Randall noted that many of the night’s songs were from movies. “It’s a movie brought to life in a song,” he pointed out, and Tumi’s performance was too refined for that, he thought. “People go to the movies to be transported,” he said, “and you didn’t do that.”
But before we heard whom we had to say goodbye to, we also had the week’s mentor and hip-hop prince, AKA, giving an awesome performance and great reprieve to the audience at the Moreleta Park NG Church Auditorium.
