Shows like Idols SA have given many talented singers their big breaks …

The dedication that we see from singers, some of whom quit their jobs just to audition, is inspirational. With that in mind, it can be a little too much to handle when things don’t go according to plan.

Nqobile Gumede was one such hopeful, who made her way to the first round of auditions which took place in Durban over this past weekend

She was so determined to do well, she confessed that she would even put her studies on hold if she received a golden ticket.

With this level of dedication, you can only imagine how disappointed she was when she was told “no”.

Somizi told her: “You’re not ready, my girl. My advice is go to medical school and concentrate on that for now. I think you’re a clever girl and that is why you got accepted at medical school.

“My advice is go study and after seven years, you will be 25 and still ready to enter Idols.”

Nqobile was so stunned by the verdict that she fainted on the spot

A picture of her being carried out by Gareth Cliff has already started doing the rounds on social media.

How would you react if you were told “No!” by the judges?
