New date for SA's Got Talent

2009-07-13 11:31
Right, in the ongoing soapie that is the troubles of the SABC, SA's Got Talent has got the green light – again.

The original airing date of 13 August has been pushed back by 7 weeks and SA's version of the hit reality show will now grace the screens of SABC 2 on 1 October. Apparently this is 'peak viewing season'. Uh, yeah sure, we believe you…

Enthusiastic hopefuls will now get to face the judges nationally in July and August as follows:
•    Johannesburg - 18th , 19th & 20th July at the Alexandra Theatre in Braamfontein; 
•    Durban  -28th , 29th July at the Sibaya Theatre;
•    Cape Town - 10th, 11th August at the CTICC

According to Kee-Leen Irvine, Executive Producer for SA’s Got Talent, the talent base is extremely broad, ranging "from ventriloquists, quick-changers, magicians, acrobats, contortionists and jugglers to beatboxers & dancers.”  How disappointing. I thought we'd have something uniquely South African like a vuvuzela choir or a footskater.

SA's Got Talent will now only air on SABC 2 on 1 October. Can you wait? publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
