SA’s Got Talent Auditions
Have you got a talent that South Africa needs to see? Submit your pre-audition video
If you think it’s time the nation heard your incredible vocal ability, or witnessed your slick style and magnificent moves, then you should audition for the next season of SA’s Got Talent. The Cape Town auditions take place at the e.tv offices in Zonnebloem on Saturday, 30 April and Sunday, 1 May 2016, and you can submit a short pre-audition form to save time on the day.
South Africa’s most competitive talent battle is looking for singers, dancers, magicians, comedians and jaw-dropping acts that amaze, stun and dazzle the judges and audience. All groups and individuals of any age can enter (you must just be a resident of South Africa), and the elite who make it to the final stages stand a chance to not only walk away with half a million rand, but also the love and adoration of a nation.
Last year, in an unbelievable finale, a three year old boy (yes, THREE) took the title, which sparked controversy over a few issues. DJ Arch Jr claimed the R500 000 and the competition from five other acts, but many viewers asked whether he knew why he was on the show and whether the prize money would be given to him or his parents. One thing for sure is that the outcome of the last season proves that anyone has a shot at the title.
You could be next!
HOW TO ENTER THE 2016 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 Rapidblue.formstack.com/forms/sagt and fill out the form or send an email to email@example.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.
If you live too far out of town, then submit a short (one minute) audition video along with your audition form. Video files should be a maximum of 15MB in size. Please note that only contestants who do not live in Cape Town, Johannesburg or Durban may submit a video audition.
