More than a million votes determine The Voice SA’s Top 5

With only two weeks to the grand finale of M-Net’s singing contest The Voice SA, the Top 5 talent were announced on Sunday. Fans cast more than a million votes this week to take Caroline Brussow, Craig Lucas, Fatman, Josh Ansley and Samantha Leonard to next Sunday’s spectacular semi-finals. 

This means that PJ Pretorius (26) from #TeamKaren had to bid the show farewell tonight.

“Never stop dreaming,” PJ’s Coach Karen Zoid told him after host Lungile Radu revealed the final voting results. “Go out there and make a name for yourself – I’ve got your back, always,” she promised.

#TeamKahn’s Fatman (41) from Bela Bela and #TeamKaren’s Samantha Leonard (24) from Kimberley found themselves in the Danger Zone with PJ on Sunday, and had to give the performances of their lives in tonight’s Top 5 show.


Craig Lucas (23) from Cape Town
Song: Amy Winehouse “Valerie”

“You’re an amazing vocalist, it’s natural for you,” Lira told him, and Bobbie van Jaarsveld agreed. “You’re an entertainer by heart,” he said. Craig’s Coach Kahn Morbee said he has “the X-Factor”, and “I believe, regardless of who wins this competition, you will be a superstar,” he said. 

Craig’s voting number is 01.

Josh Ansley (31) 
Song: James Arthur “Say You Won’t Let Go” 

Coach Kahn commended Josh for taking a risk with a more modern sound these days. “Your voice is phenomenal, I’m envious of your voice,” he admitted. Karen Zoid remarked that Josh had undergone a serious transformation over the past few weeks. “Your soul is shining,” she told him. And Josh’s Coach, Bobby van Jaarsveld, promised that there was even more to come! “Next week he’s going to blow your minds!” he grinned. 

Josh’s voting number is 15.

Samantha Leonard (24)
Song: Brandi Carlile “The Story”. 

Kahn thought it was an excellent song choice that showed off her vocal range. “You are a full package!” Coach Lira raved, calling Sam a cross between Shania Twain and Riana Nel. “She is ready to go out there and tour, and make lots of money!” a proud Coach Karen exclaimed happily.  

Sam’s voting number is 08.

Fatman (41), 
Song: Robbie Williams “Angels”

“Daai was baie mooi,” Lira told him in Afrikaans. “This is the only competition in the world that a dream like yours could come true,” she noted happily. “And you’re suddenly the fashion guy as well!” Bobby joked. “I think what you’ve showed throughout out the show is that you’re an accomplished musician,” said Kahn, proudly sporting a Fatman-hat.

#Fatman’s voting number is 02.

Caroline Brussow (32) 
Song: Sia “Titanium” 

“What a performance!” Karen shouted happily. “You are titanium, you’re amazingly strong, and I believe you will be very successful in your life,” she told Caroline Grace. Coach Kahn enjoyed that Caroline had showed more of her vulnerable side tonight, and “that’s why you are the best female audience in the show!” Coach Bobby said proudly. 

Caroline Grace’s voting number is 13.
