HHP to guest judge on Idols

HHP and a whopping cash prize have been added to this year's Idols bill.

M-Net is really going all out this year to make Idols bigger and better than before. Well, they need to do something after that voting debacle, right? 

HHP is joining Zolani from Freshlyground and Khan from the Parlotones as a guest judge. He'll be at the Bloemfontein auditions if you want to sing your little heart out for him. We're really excited about the guest judges, but not so much about the presenters.

While the promise of fame and fortune after winning Idols has been a little empty in past experiences, this time there's cold, hard cash involved. R500 000 could be yours if you get the most votes throughout the competition. Remember, this is more about popularity than talent, so start making those badges, hopefuls!

Ford and M-Net are each contributing R250 000 to this grand prize. Ford is also sponsoring this year's winner with a car. Citroën not keen to get on board again? After having to shell out two cars instead of one last year, we totally get it.

Do you think this boost in prizes will encourage more people to enter? Are you going to enter? In case you're considering it, here are the audition venues and dates. Just show up bright and early on the day.

Cape Town - 6 April at the Cape Town ICC
Durban - 17 April at Gateway Shopping Centre
Johannesburg - 24 April at the Sandton ICC
Port Elizabeth - 2 May at Boardwalk Shopping Centre
Bloemfontein - 8 May at Windmill Entertainment Centre
