The judges were treated to a diverse mix of contestants this week.
One of these was the oldest performer in the competition to date: 45-year-old Michelle Moodie, an English speaking former cabaret artist who braved the stage with one of her favourite Afrikaans songs.
While Coach Khan nabbed Michelle as well as Richard Stirton (22), a B.Com student from Cape town who had all four of the coaches begging and pleading him to join their teams, coach Karen Zoid unfortunately did not manage to win over any talent. This means that Khan is now in the lead in terms of numbers with 7 talent to his name.
Lira, who has been extremely selective and strategic in terms of compiling her team up until now, was the envy of her colleagues this week, however, after young mother Sibulele Miti (27) from King William’s Town and back-up vocalist Robin Pieters (25) decided to go with her.
The three new additions to Team Bobby are rocker Xanilee Hammond as well as Abel Knobel (24) and Chanel Davids (27).

7 singers in #TeamKahn: Michelle Moodie, Richard Stirton, Clemour Ngobeni, Johan Anker, Eden Myrrh, Zé and Prime Zulu.
