Actress Thembi Seete popped into the reality show Idol SA as a judge and did so well in her judging that many couldn’t stop talking about the moment and praising her for a job well done.
Thembi Seete showed her judging skills during the premiere of the 18th season of the shoe yesterday, Sunday, July 17. Also on the judging panel at the time was bench oldie Somizi, who recently weathered a marital storm, and music executive JR Bogopa.
Thembi Seete and JR Bogopa were picked as replacements for Unathi Nkayi and Randall Abrahams, who exited the show at the 17th season’s finale. At the time, Mzansi Magic had announced that the duo’s contracts would not be renewed.
It turned out fans had no qualms about her choice as a judge. In fact, the choice of Thembi Seete, and her first judging outing on the show, provoked raptures in many quarters, with some viewers stating they can’t wait to see what next she might offer as a judge.
One fan confessed that she hadn’t been watching the reality show for years – well, until she saw Thembi Seete as part of the show. Now she’s hooked. Another noted her adoption as a judge was the best decision ever.
