Paxton Fielies 

The 16-year-old is the youngest contestant on Idols SA this season and was the first to receive a Golden Ticket during auditions in Cape Town. The teen from Bishop Lavis is a Grade 11 pupil and has the full backing of her family and school when it comes to pursuing her musical dream. Her impressive voice bowled over our judges when she auditioned using Tori Kelly’s “Confetti” -  and she has not disappointed since.

The 25-year-old has had a long road to the Idols stage. Shortly after a successful audition in Durban, he was shot during a mugging. A true kasi guy from KwaMashu, his true grit saw him make it through to the Top 16.
