SAs Got Talent Auditions

Think you’ve got what it takes?


Been told you can sing? Got sick dance moves that will make Usher jealous? Then you might just have what it takes: The Cape Town auditions for the fifth season of SA’s Got Talent, one of the nation’s most beloved high-profile reality TV shows, take place at Belmont Square in Rondebosch on Saturday, 31 May and Sunday, 1 June 2014 (venue was changed from The River Club).

South Africa’s most competitive all-out talent battle is looking for singers, dancers, magicians, comedians and out-of-this-world acts to entertain, enthrall and dazzle the judges and audiences! All groups and individuals of any age can enter (you must just be a resident of South Africa), and the elite who make it the finals stand a chance to not only walk away with a grand cash purse but also the love and adoration of Mzansi!

Hearing-impaired Durbanite Darren Rajbal took the title in 2009 with his slick dance moves; the opera-singing street sweeper from Cape Town – he didn’t leave a dry eye in the country – James Bhemgee took the 2010 title; in 2012, pint-sized praise poet Botlhale Boikanyo took the nation by storm with her confidence, sassy performance and insightful verse; and most recently, 16-year-old singer Johnny Apple from George wowed audiences with his incredible sultry voice and took the 2013 prize.

You could be next!

HOW TO ENTER THE 2014 SA’S GOT TALENT AUDITIONS

Before heading to the live auditions, eager participants can avoid the long queues by pre-registering. To do so, go to Formstack.com/forms/rapidblue-talent and fill out the form or send an email to talent@rapidblue.com and request an entry form. The queues are guaranteed to be long, so get to the venue early to secure your place in line; doors open at 7am and close at 12pm. Do keep in mind, if you don’t have internet access, you can register at the venue on the day.

WHAT TO BRING TO THE 2014 SA’S GOT TALENT AUDITIONS:

  • Your pre-registration form (if you have pre-registered).
  • A photocopy of your I.D or birth certificate.
  • Under 18s must bring along their guardian(s) with a copy of their I.D or proof of guardianship.
  • Bring any props or accessories needed for your act and arrive clothed in your costume.
  • It will be a long day, so bring along refreshments and a camping chair for comfort.
  • You will need to sign a few forms, so bring a pen.

So whether you’re a singer, a dancer or just your average high-flying, dare-devil acrobat who would love nothing more than getting shot out of a cannon by a monkey in a chicken suit, then you had better register to secure your spot in the line at the Cape Town auditions.

“If you have an act that is worth seeing, then we want to see it.” - ETV
