I was wondering when this was going to happen and I can finally say that South Africa is getting it’s very own The X Factor! The show has spawned superstars such as One Direction, Shayne Ward, Leona Lewis, Cher Lloyd and many more and now we have another chance to find our very own superstar.

The winner will take home R300 000 as well as a Sony Music recording contract and auditions are happening soon! Auditions for the show start on 7 June Durban, 11 June in Bloemfontein, 14th and 15th of June in Cape Town, 18th of June in Polokwane, 21st and 22nd of June in Johannesburg, 25th of June in Nelspruit and 28th of June in Pietermaritzburg. If you can’t get to those venues, however, SABC 1 will also be opening online auditions.

Things You Need To Know:
• Come prepared to sing two songs at the audition
• Dress to impress!
• No bands allowed – groups must be two or more singers
• A valid South African identity document is required for auditions
• You must read and agree to the Terms and Conditions of the competition

What do you guys think of the news?
