Thembisa Mdoda: It’s been a beautiful experience because it’s like a rough diamond. It’s beautiful, it requires work, it’s heavy. All in all its just heart, it’s passion, it’s been incredible. I had the utmost fun on this production. With the injuries and the fatigue and everything that stood in our way, we overcame everything and we put on an incredible show. I can only be happy.
Interviewer: What did you think of the judges?
Thembisa Mdoda: I love them. [ha ha.] You know, I actually want them to be my best friends [ha ha]. I love them. They are trained dancers. They are looking at and judging something they have loved all their lives, so they’re passionate about it, and they’ll be detailed about it, and they’ll tell you where to work and what to do. So I love them, they were incredible. And I could see on their faces that they were shocked [that I’m leaving] but I was like “It is okay”. I will forever be grateful for their guidance.
Interviewer: What was the hardest for you?
Thembisa Mdoda: I think the hardest was the time. I was juggling a lot with work and doing this production. A lot of people take a sabbatical and I didn’t. So it was a lot just trying to make sure everything fits into the schedule.

Thembisa Mdoda: I didn’t expect to make so many relationships and connections – ones that will be long lasting. I know that even after this competition the family and the contestants we will remain friends which is incredible.

Thembisa: I don’t know how to – if I say I’m happy then [ha ha] people are going to go “Hey what do you mean?” I’m really happy! And I’m really at peace. I feel that everything I came to do on this show I did and God is closing this door, and opens another. That is exactly how I feel.
