That’s right… Idols 8 auditions are set to take place around the country during February 2012. The much anticipated Season 8 of the hit South African TV show is going to be back on all of our screens again this year.
Auditions for this year’s season (to be screened on M-net & Mzansi Magic) will be going down in 4 cities around the country during the month of love, meaning that the queues of hopefuls (some arriving from the smaller SA town) are going to be out of hand.
There are a couple of things that you need to know about entering-
* South African citizens between the ages of 16 and 30 (on the day of their audition) are eligible to enter Idols.
* 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.
* Musical instruments will again be allowed in the audition room
Auditions will take place at the following venues:
Johannesburg: Sandton Convention Centre – Saturday, February 4
Durban: Ushaka Marine World – Saturday, February 11
Cape Town: Grandwest Entertainment World – Saturday, February 18
Kliptown, Soweto: Walter Sisulu Square – Saturday, February 25
I cant wait to see hilarity ensue when all the “shower singers” embarrass themselves on national tv. I’m hoping that this year we unearth another Elvis Blue- and while we’re at it, we could sure use another Adeline Mocke- heaven knows the world needs another mooiness.
