Idols South Africa IV is the sixth season of South African reality interactive talent show based on the British talent show Pop Idol. It premiered on 18 July 2010.[1] For the first time Dave Thompson was not a member of the judging panel. The remaining three judges all returned and were supported by a guest judge in every casting city: Zolani (member of FleshlyGround) in Cape Town, Kahn Morebee (The Parlotones) in Johannesburg, Steve Hofmeyr in Durban, HHP in Port Elizabeth, and Loyiso in Bloemfontein.

The fourteen semifinalists where split in two groups of seven and performed live at Mosaïek Teatro on 22 and 27 August 2010 respectively. After the bottom two from each vote were eliminated, the remaining finalists were merged for the round of the top ten.

Top ten contestant Jamie-Lee Sexton had already been a finalist on Idols III under the name Jamie-Lee Blokdyk where she placed twelfth. She is therefore the first Idol contestant worldwide that made the finals on two different seasons. Accordingly, this was the second season (after season five) in which the top two contestants were never in the bottom, and (after the first season) the second in which both finalists were male.
