SA's got talent

Those lucky folks at SABC 2 have secured the deal to SA’s version of Britain’s Got Talent. Talent comes in many forms, shapes, sizes and ages and perhaps it could be found in unexpected places and really when you least expect it. But with the good comes the bad, and we do mean the really horribly bad. The concept to SA’s Got Talent is simple; anyone who believes they have talent is encouraged to audition.

This reality wonder was created and executively produced by showbiz mogul and American Idol judge Simon Cowell. After being successfully produced in 26 countries, it has finally hit SA shores. There is absolutely no discrimination, so you can chill as the competition is open to anyone of any age with any special talent. Whether you’re a singer, dancer or and comedian…hell, even if you and your pet can put on a two man show, then this is the competition for you. Really anything goes!
