Tough one for Thembi

What a shock I think for everyone! Just shows that you can never be sure of your place in this competition. Thembi was the last person in my mind to be voted out. She is such a dynamic performer with so many facets. Thembi I wish you all the success that you deserve! Go out there and do it they way you know how! I am in awe of your talent and I look forward to seeing you and hearing your voice again!Thanks again to you all for your support! This next show is going to be great! Enjoy!!

Hi Everyone!I am wishing you all a happy Easter! I hope you all have a great weekend with your friends and family. And if you happen to be alone then I am sending you all the love you deserve!I would like to share a message that I received recently from my good friend Don who I call the Donni Lama! He is a bass player and is currently jammin in Dubai.. Good luck my friend!! Anyway This is his message.
Your journey is pure and free. Take time to listen to your heart of who you are and fill it with simple gratitude. Breath. Everyday has been given to us to enjoy. Take your experience as high as you can with the simple vibration of love. Let it draw you in and you will feel the magic. One breath in, one breath out. The miracle is happening now. The power of love is flowing with you.
Isn't that Awesome! Just a little something to get you back into the moment! Thanx Donni! So be sure to give some one a hug and enjoy the show on Sunday! I am confident that everyone is going to be incredible!

All Apologize

Hi everyone
I would like to apologize to my fellow male contestants for my "I agree" answer. The truth is that I actually didn't hear what the judges were saying to me as I had taken out my in-ear monitors. I was really excited to hear what they were saying to me and when I got home and watched the performance I was a bit shocked at my own answer! Sorry guys!! You are so talented and I am honoured to perform along side all of you! Just want to say cheers to my buddy Cameron. Keep doing what doing! You are a star! Definitely one of the best singer song writers I have ever met! Onwards and forwards!
See you later

Gone fishin!

Just got back from the mountains! So good to see my homies in the hills! It is without doubt the simple things in life that take the cake!! We spent the day on the farm with my family and friends and all my dogs and it really did me good. The Men of the Trees nursery is looking amazing and I am just so grateful for all the hard work that was put in. It is a dream come true for me!! I even hooked a couple rainbow trout which was totally unexpected! Anyway gotta run as we are getting ready for elimination night here at m-net studios! Wish me luck and keep it coming strong!!Later J

Hey people of the New SA

Joburg weather ROCKS!! I love it!! Its a pity most of you have to sit in traffic and work and stuff.... HA just messing with you!! Yip we are really lucky us muso's.. I have always loved being a musician. Even if you have a really tough time, the minute you get on stage and start the show, everything just fades away and you are released into your purest form. It is magic!Music is actually quite a strange activity! I was watching a dvd of some concert and I muted the TV. It was so weird watching the musicians perform. I think there were five muso's, all playing different instruments, all doing different things and it all came together perfectly into a balanced, beautiful sound. Sculpting an invisible masterpiece!! Sculptors of sound!! Amazing! And I must tell those that have never experienced the true sense of freedom through this mysterious expression that there is nothing quite like it!! anyway just remember to look up sometimes!! Oh and please give someone a hug for me!!Good night!

Time for some good old homegrown! The show is gonna rock! We have just got back from sound check and everyone is sounding GREAT! I just have to say that Jonny Clegg is a living legend! I mean here is a white man who wrote the most amazing tunes, bridging the racial divide, dancing like a black man and at the same time painting awesome historical pictures with his lyrics! In the 80's!!! Full respect!! I hope he comes to the show!Well I am honoured to sing one of his anthems and I hope I give it the justice it deserves. I really do relate to his music and his messages. He has a special ability as a songwriter and performer to evoke raw emotion and to remind us of our ancient culture and heritage that we all share. Let us not forget that we are all Africans, maybe some more than others but none the less, that is what we are! So lets give it HORNS!!AMAFULLTHROTTLE!!!!J
