The two judges which were dismissed from the show are; Unathi Nkayi and Randall Abrams.

Unathi had been on the show for 10 years as she joined Idols SA in 2012 to become the judge while Randall has been with the show since its inception about 17 years ago.

Despite the years they have been on the show, but their journey came to an end.

Fortunately enough, Somizi Mhlongo got to return as the judge. Mhlongo was suspended last year when je was facing allegations of abuse against his ex husband, Mohale Motoung.

His fans demanded that he be returned to the show and even threatened to boycott it if he is not returned. Perhaps Idols SA thought they are just kidding but the fans showed how serious they were. The ratings of Idols SA dropped a lot since Somizi left.

To save the show and bring back the viewership, Idols SA reinstated Mhlongo to the show. However, the big question remained, Who are the new judges?

Well, now that can be answered.

According to an article on City Press, new Idols SA judges have been unveiled and they are:

Thembi Seete- Last year, she came in as a guest judge and impressed many people. They clearly said that she is the perfect one that could replace Somizi.

JR- His experience in music comes in handy as he once won a choir competition as a conductor in the Clash of the choirs. It is with no doubt, he will impress.

Somizi- His fans have won, Somizi is making a return.
