Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

The search for SA’s new Idol is on!
Wishful singing stars who have been waiting in the wings to
rock the stage, hit the high notes in a recording studio and build a phenomenal
fan base, can once again line-up for the audition that might catapult them into
the limelight. Idols SA is back in 2013 to launch the showbiz career of a
talented unknown performer with a one-in-a million voice. Auditions for the
ninth season of South Africa’s biggest singing competition, a co-production
between M-Net and Mzansi Magic, will be taking place around the country pronto.
The Idols Season 9 auditions kick-off in Cape Town on Saturday, 2 February and
thereafter it’s up to singers in Durban, Johannesburg and Soweto to convince
the judges that they need a foot in the door to fame. Wannabe Idols need to join
the queues at the following venues on these dates: Saturday, 2 February – Cape
Town: Grandwest Entertainment World; Saturday, 16 February – Soweto: Soweto
Theatre; Saturday, 2 March – Durban: Playhouse; Saturday, 23 March –
Johannesburg: Sandton Convention Centre. South African citizens between the
ages of 16 and 30 (on the day of their audition) are eligible to enter Idols SA
Season 9. 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.
