The 21st South African Music Awards (Facebook)

Johannesburg - The 2015 South African Music Awards (SAMA) will be remembered as one of the most exciting and entertaining award shows we've seen in a long time.

While people on Twitter complained about the sound (the same problem every year) at Sun City, the show was spectacular. From jaw dropping dresses to incredible live performances, these are the top 5 moments of SAMA XXI

Boity and Cyprian feed the thirst on the red carpet

The Club 808 hosts warmed up the red carpet in outfits that made everyone gasp... Boity hit the carpet in a colourful, yet revealing number, while Cyprian got all the ladies in a tizz over his sophisticated and smart look.

HHP's proudly SA medley

Samas host HHP got the crowd going from the start with a medley of some of the years biggest songs, including covers from Beatenberg, Cassper Nyovest, DJ Merlon and AKA. More often than not, he nailed it!

Botlhale Boikanyo gave us goosies

The 13-year-old songbird blew many away in the Sun City Superbowl crowd with her beautiful rendition of a poem about The Soil. It was so amazing, that by the time it was over, there was hardly a dry eye in the house.

Simphiwe Dana singing in Afrikaans

South Africa is one of the most diverse countries in the world. And so it only takes one of the most powerful afro-soul singers in Mzansi singing in Afrikaans (with Kurt Darren, nogal)  to make you realise just how beautifully diverse we truly are. 

K.O winning Record of the Year

K.O proved once and for all that this year's SAMA's belonged to Hip Hop. It capped off a great night for Mr Cashtime, who also walked away with awards for Best Collaboration and Best Rap Album. 

Honourable mentions: A performance by Cassper "Kanye West in white" Nyovest, HHP's jokes, K.O and Sarah Heaton come out officially, Cassper debuting his energy drink on the red carpet, Oskido nearly breaking down in tears and Bucie's little red number.

What was your highlight of the evening?
