If any of you have had the opportunity to watch America’s Got Talent on the Series channel you will know that this shows provides the viewer with endless hours of entertainment watching people display such amazing talents as “setting themselves alight while juggling”.
Thankfully SABC has been kind enough to give us a second season of the show and Round two of the theatre auditions will take place in Cape Town on Saturday 4 September and Sunday 5 September. Yay- maybe one of the knife-jugglers will impale themselves or alternatively one of the magician’s assistants will disappear forever and then the afternoon out will be almost entirely worthwhile based on that alone.
SABC 2 are inviting the public to come down to the Cape Town International Convention Centre to not only be part of the show, but to support the likes of our own local Cape Town talent.
Filming starts at 8am to 1pm and then continues from 2pm until the early evening.
You will also have the chance to meet the three judges for this year’s competition: Ian Von Memerty, Randall Abrahams (judge slut) and Shado Twala, and to react to their comments first hand (feel free to boo and cheer at will). Presenters Anele Mdoda (hmm, we’ll see how she is on tv) and Rob Van Vuuren (from Corne and Twakkie) will be at the auditions at times making their way onto stage to challenge the judges and even participate in some of the weird, wonderful and straight up odd acts.
Cadbury Lunch Bar- the show’s sponsor, will also be giving out hampers and loads of chocolate throughout the day and much much more.
All you have to do is send an email with your name and how many people will be attending to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact 011 348 1400 to secure your seat.
Dress: Smart – As a guest of the show you will be on national television in a prime time slot. Therefore we observe a strict no jeans, sneakers, caps, beanies or hoodies policy.
SA’s Got Talent will premiere on Thursday 16 September on SABC 2 at 19h30 and is brought to you by Cadbury Lunch Bar “Much, Much more.”
We’ll try and organize a bit of a chat with the presenters and some of the judges as I’m sure this year’s show will be filled with its fair share of controversy.
Yay for SABC getting some good local programming… Yay for SA’s Got Talent Season 2!!!
