New date announced for SA’s top talent show

They came out in the thousands. From six year olds to 82 year olds. And now South Africa will have to wait until October 1 to find out how talented we really are. SABC 2 announced that the broadcast date for the hot new reality show SA’s Got Talent has been moved out by seven weeks to October 1.

The enthusiastic hopefuls will now get to face the judges nationally in July and August. The Durban dates are July 28 and 29 at the iZulu Theatre at Sibaya, preceded by Johannesburg (July 18, 19 & 20 at the Alexandra Theatre, Braamfontein) and followed by Cape Town (August 10 and 11 at the CTICC).

Commented Ed Worster, programme manager at SABC 2 “We are happy to confirm the new broadcast dates, which is good news as the show will now air in peak viewing season.”

Added Kee-Leen Irvine, Executive Producer for SA’s Got Talent, “The Rapid Blue team have spent the last six weeks processing thousands and thousands of entries 24/7 and we are really excited to show the judges and South Africa the range of talent our wonderful country has to offer. And it is broad, from ventriloquists, quick-changers, magicians, acrobats, contortionists, jugglers to beatboxers & dancers.”

SA’s Got Talent will premiere on October 1 on SABC 2 and is presented by Cadbury Lunch Bar “much, much more.”
