THE fate of the Welkom’s Got Talent entrants now lie partially in your hands.

The top-eight acts to compete in the final round will be based on 50% community voting and a 50% judges’ vote.

The 12 acts competing for a position in the finals are, in alphabetical order:

) Alicia Theron (female singer);

) Brown Zongola (female singer);

) Eugene Katleho Ramakoae (male singer);

) Goodness Mokau (female singer);

) Hope A Cappella (a cappella group);

) Lee-Anne Venter Haywood (female singer);

) Neo Hlohlongoane (poet);

) Osama Bin Singing (male singer);

) Phlyvocals (male singer);

) Ragamuffinz (rock group);

) Thabang Selikoe (female singer); and

) Undefeated (pantsula dancers).

You can vote for your favourite contestant in one of two ways.

An in-centre voting station will be operational at the guest relations desk (Goldfields Mall Entrance 2). This opened at 13:00 on Saturday (09/05). It will be operational between 09:30 and 05:30 from Mondays to Fridays, from 09:00 to 17:00 on Saturdays and from 09:00 to 15:00 on Sundays. Proof of identification is required (South African identification document or valid driver’s licence) in order to cast a vote.

You can also like the photo of your favourite act on the Goldfields Mall’s Facebook page in order to cast your vote.

First like the Goldfields Mall page (the official page has the mall’s logo in green as icon), then go to the “Vote for the Finals” photo album, and like the act/acts you wish to vote for.

Please note that only one vote per person per act will be counted. So you can choose to either vote in-centre or on Facebook.

You may, however, vote for more than one act, by for instance liking more than one photo.

The voting period opened on Saturday at 13:00 and closes on Tuesday, 19 May, at 11:00. No late entries will be accepted.

The top-eight acts competing in the finals will be posted on Facebook and will be telephonically notified on Wednesday, 20 May.

The final round will be held on 23 May.

The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

This year’s ultimate winner can look forward to the following amazing prizes: R20 000 in cash, R5 000 in fashion vouchers sponsored by Just Property Group Goldfields Mall, as well as the opportunity to perform as an opening act at one of the Goldfields Casino’s scheduled concerts within six months after winning the contest.

All sound requirements for the performance will be arranged by the casino, as well as any other costs relevant to the performance.

This competition is proudly brought to you by the Goldfields Mall, the Vista and Express newspapers, the Goldfields Casino, Coca-Cola, Tshebo Media, Dela Casa Productions and Just Property Group Goldfields.
