Johannesburg- It's the final countdown until Durban is lit up with the sights and sounds of the 15th annual Metro FM Music Awards.

The event, to be held at the Durban ICC on Saturday evening, will see the industry's biggest and brightest compete for some of the most prestigious awards.

With so much excitement it's easy to lose yourself, so we're here to help.

Here's everything you need to know about this year's awards.

The only thing we can't help with is your outfit...

Your hosts

Fans had to wait until Thursday to hear who this year's host would be. But we bet they weren't disappointed with Queen B Bonang and DJ Mo Flava.

What they'll be wearing

As always, Bonang's outfits for the awards are top secret, but she has given fans a glimpse of what she'll be wearing on her feet.

How you're getting there

While many guests will be flying into Durban International to attend the awards, a select (and elite) few will be joining T-bo Touch's convoy.

We hear there's only one rule to joining: four pipes or more!

It's not a game

A surprise guest

Local muso Toya Delazy is currently plying her trade in the UK, and with a packed schedule no one expected her to attend the awards. But the songbird decided to drop everything to take a last minute flight to the awards.

And her dedication has been rewarded with the opportunity to present the Best Hip-Hop Award at the ceremony!

The stage

Everyone knows the Metros have one of the best stage set-ups in the country, and this year is no different! Even though we have yet to see snaps, AKA assures us it's going to be, well, super mega!

The favourites

Last year's big winner was rapper Cassper Nyovest, walking away with five gongs. This year Nomvula hitmaker Nathi and DJ duo, Kings of the Weekend lead the nominations. We hope they've shined their shoes and practiced their acceptance speeches. 

Black Coffee's acceptance speech

The popular DJ may not be able to attend the awards because of other commitments overseas, but he knows exactly what he would say if his name is called up as a winner at the Metros.
