Brutal road to My Star top 10

The My Star show, which has had to be moved from one location to another in recent weeks due to the ongoing public servants' strike had to kickoff late last Friday at a new venue, the GTC, as the gatekeepers had to wait patiently to raise enough numbers for the show.

The crowd is fast staying away from the weekly eliminations as the show has had to be moved from its traditional Btv premises, to GSS hall, then the army barracks, and now the GTC hall in Phase 4.

The waiting audience could be heard complaining about the late start. As the aspiring stars took to the stage for selection of the bottom six the audience could be heard complaining that the competition is not fair.

They (crowd) complained about the big number that was up for elimination on the night, when six contestants were put up for the dreaded axe.  Towellah, Salome, Nomsa, Calvin, Elizabeth and Bianca had to battle to see who will remain in the competition.

Salome, Towellah and Nomsa couldn't impress the judges and had to go home. Making the top 10 are Calvin, Elizabeth and Bianca who was saved by the judges on Friday. The other seven are Kaelo, Norman, Tshepiso, Kennedy, Goitseone, Refilwe and Fifi.

After the top 10 was announced, Calvin went on stage and gave the usual sensational performance that impressed Master Dee who said: "You are good my man and just hold that way.  We can bet you will take the prize home."

Kaelo was the least impressive when DJ Sid told her: "Mma wee, you are losing it by the day and if you are not careful you won't make it anywhere further in this competition." Kgomotso Tshwenyego noted that Kaelo had to show some seriousness as she was competing for the second time in the show.

Explaining why they had to send three contestants home on Friday, Master Dee said: "You should note that we were supposed to have selected the top 20 at the beginning, which could have allowed us to finish on time, but with the 25 we had, we are left with no option but to chop them down to save us time so we can finish and start another search."
