No question about it, this was the most interesting episode yet of Clash of the Choirs. Playing around with nostalgia, the choirs were given the theme Waar Was Jy? and performed renditions of old classics.
As easy as that may sound, we |saw yesterday that some choirs did |a better job than others. The trick, as the judges always say, is to play around with the song as much as possible without changing it too much. This means that no matter how many |layers of musical aesthetics you |apply, a listener should still be able |to hear traces of the original song.

THEY BARELY MADE IT
While Moneoa and her team did well by not changing much of the song they chose,

While the Malaika singer admitted that she was in the wrong, that the incident happened in the first place places a question mark over her leadership skills. In fact, at some |point she even threatened to quit during the confrontation. That's wrong considering her choir needs her more than she needs them. Anyway, all is now well.

Anele Mdoda is really funny and gospel diva Rebecca Malope plays the maternal role really well.
DYING KICKS ROULETTE
It was no surprise that Tshedi and her crew found themselves in the bottom two. Up against HHP, it was obvious Tshedi would fall. They were given
THE ROAD AHEAD
The weakest links are all gone and |it's time to see who is really talented |at composition and presentation. Moneoa and Shugasmakx are the favourites, for now.
