Noma Khumalo from Pietermaritzburg was named this year's winner after a star studded finale at Carnival City, last night.

In a tight race against fellow KZN rival, Thami Shobede, the substitute teacher was announced the ultimate Idol after a record vote that saw over 83 million votes cast throughout Season 12.

Mzansi Magic viewers were treated to a spectacular high-octane showcase.

The finale got off to a dazzling start as this season's Top 10 reunited on stage, performing This Is What You Came For by Calvin Harris feat Rihanna. 

The fireworks continued as AKA treated South Africa with an exclusive Idols debut of two new singles, all while standing on top of a grand piano. It doesn't get any more Super Mega than that! 

Before the life changing result was announced, Noma and Thami treated everyone to their last performances as contestants on the stage. 

Noma was sensational as she covered Mariah Carey's Without You while Thami brought the house down with Stevie Wonder's Signed Sealed Delivered, both accompanied by the reigning winners of Clash of The Choirs.
