‘Idols SA’ is getting down to the wire and the show is upping the ante. On Sunday night, contestants were surprised to find Dr Mathew Knowles joining Randall, Unathi and Somizi at the judging panel.
Knowles has been in the music industry for a long time and his name has a lot of weight to it, not just because he is Beyonce’s father.
He is an extremely successful talent manager and author, so it wouldn’t be surprising that contestants were feeling a little nervous to perform in front of Papa Knowles.
According to Youth Village, the talent manager was entirely focussed on giving the contestants constructive criticism so they can make a successful career for themselves outside of the show. Considering who this man is, we’d definitely follow every bit of advice he handed out.
Briefly.co.za gathered from tweeps’ reactions, they were a little star struck by Knowles’ presence but they really wished that he could be a permanent part of the show, sadly he is a very busy man.
As fans watched the show, they flooded Twitter with reactions to Beyonce's father appearing on 'Idols SA'.
