Winter is about to heat up as the competition in the ring reaches boiling point
SAs Got Talent Auditions
Think you’ve got what it takes?
Been told you’ve got a stellar set of vocal pipes? Got the kind of sick dance moves that will make Usher jealous? Then you might just have what it takes to make it onto SA’s Got Talent. The Cape Town auditions for the sixth season of the high-profile reality TV show, take place at Belmont Square in Rosebank on Saturday, 30 May and Sunday, 31 May 2015.
The 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 (although you must just be a resident of South Africa).
As well as the love and adoration of Mzansi, the finalists stand a chance to walk away with a substantial cash prize.
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 16-year-old singer Johnny Apple from George wowed audiences with his incredible sultry voice and took the 2013 prize. The youngest winner yet was 14-year-old singer Tholwana Mohale, who nabbed the coveted 2014 title.
You could be next!
