Cliff who recently announced that he will be leaving Idols SA at the end of the current season is confident he made the right choice.

Earlier this month, a shocking announcement on Facebook revealed that Idols Judge Gareth Cliff has bid final goodbyes to Idols SA after 11 seasons as a judge on the show. After deciding it was time to leave the show, Cliff made the announcement via a statement posted to his Facebook page.

Gareth Cliff wrote;

“It’s time! After eleven seasons of Idols‚ it’s time for me to say goodbye. What better way to bring this chapter to a close than a trip to New York and meeting American Idols judge Harry Connick Jr and being on his post-Idols show — ’Harry.’”

Without revealing his next step after his sudden resignation, Cliff told his fans to “watch this space“.

Meanwhile, Cliff’s resignation as Idols SA judge paved way for fans to express their feelings about his time on the show and his decision to leave.
