Idols auditions start soon

2010-03-12 00:00

IF you fancy emulating the likes of ­Jason Hartman, then you’d better start stretching your vocal cords — and not just to cheer for your favourite team in the Fifa Football World Cup.

M-Net has commissioned a new season of Idols, which will be broadcast on M-Net from July.

And good news for wannabe Idols is that they don’t have to take time off work during the week or bunk school to go to auditions this time round, as the process will take place on Saturdays or public holidays. Countrywide auditions will begin in April, with the KwaZulu-Natal sessions taking place at Gateway Theatre of Shopping in Umhlanga on April 17

As was the case last season, potential songbirds will be allowed to audition with a musical instrument of their choice, but vuvuzelas are not encouraged!

The winner of this year’s contest will walk off with R500 000 in cash, courtesy of M-Net and Ford South ­Africa, a car from Ford, as well as ­numerous other fabulous prizes.

Contestants between the ages of 16 and 30 are eligible for entry. For more information visit
