Want to audition for SA’s Got Talent?

2009-06-08 00:00

SUSAN Boyle, a 47-year-old unemployed Scottish woman, hit the headlines recently after coming second on the reality show, Britain’s Got Talent thanks to her amazing voice. It’s the kind of story that the SABC hopes to uncover later this year, after it secured the rights to broadcast a South African version of the show, created by American Idol judge Simon Cowell.

South Africa’s Got Talent, which will premiere on August 13, offers everyone from singers to dancers, comedians, animal trainers and acrobats the chance to perform on stage and stand the chance to win R250 000 and the opportunity to perform at the new President’s Command Performance later this year.

“The real appeal of SA’s Got Talent is that there are no restrictions on who can enter and what your talent has to be. Anything goes!,” says Nivasha Naidoo, SABC2’s marketing manager.

Applicants can register to attend an audition for the show by calling 083 913 1120 and following the voice prompts or e-mail talent@rapidblue.com.
