SOUTH Africa’s favourite singing reality show Idols is back for it’s tenth serving.
And in true fashion they are revealing their auditioning places and have added a new place for singing hopeful who can now audition at Carnival City on Gauteng’s East Rand.
All these hopefuls will be shown on M-Net and Mzansi Magic, which will simulcast all the episodes where the public can chose yet another wannabe a successful musician like the previous winners Khaya Mthethwa, Musa Sukwene, Elvis Blue and Jody Williams.
“Back in 2002 Heinz Winckler was the second singer in the world to win an Idols title, only months after Will Young became the first ever ‘Pop Idol’ in the UK,” M-Net’s Head of M-Net Publicity and Special Projects Lani Lombard remembers. “And next weekend it will be another first for Idols when we audition on the East Rand.”
Randall Abrahams says he can’t wait to kick off his tenth stint as an Idols judge. “I’m rubbing my hands together in glee at the prospects of new victims. I’m in training,” he warns prospective competitors. “I’m eating well, I’m getting a lot of sleep, I’m working out at the gym … I’m going to be fighting fit for the battle ahead,” warns Idols’s strictest judge.
On serious note, Randall points out that Idols Season 9 last year boasted the highest caliber of talent ever in the history of the show. “There is no doubt that the standard still keeps improving in leaps and bounds every year,” he notes. “This year’s aspiring superstars had better bring their A-game.”
AUDITIONS WILL TAKE PLACE AT:
Entrants need to remember that they must be between the ages of 16 and 30 (on the day of their audition) and those younger than 18 have to be accompanied by a parent or guardian and all contestants will be asked to present their ID documents at the registration, which will take place on the day of auditioning.
