After two wildly successful seasons of The Voice South Africa, it’s no surprise that M-Net has greenlit a third season of the popular singing competition. The broadcaster announced today that entries for the upcoming third season are now open ahead of the show’s return to TV in early 2019.

Think you have what it takes? Apply ASAP as entries close on Sunday, 30 September 2018. Anyone over the age of 18 is eligible to enter the competition that has ignited the careers of stars like Richard Stirton, Craig Lucas, Armand Joubert, Fatman and many more.

“We know that there are many nightingales, crooners, songbirds and rockers out there who are reacting to the news with songs of joy,” says M-Net’s Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard. “During the past couple of months, our M-Net social media accounts were inundated with direct messages from performers and fans with a burning desire to take part in The Voice South Africa. Now the moment has arrived, with the launch of a new season, and we can’t wait to meet the next group of talent whose vocal artistry will swirl the coaches’ chairs around and launch their musical journeys to stardom.”

This season, there is only one way to enter The Voice South Africa – via the online entry form on the M-Net website. Once you have logged on to, you will go through a quick and easy online audition process. First, you will be asked to fill in a short application form with a few personal questions and thereafter you have to submit a 90-second long video showcasing your vocal talent.

“Don’t fret too much about the visual aspect of your video,” advises Lombard. “Remember, as the name of this worldwide television hit suggests, it’s all about The Voice. The selection team only wants to assess the quality, tone and timbre of your vocal chords and get a sense of your performance skills.” For the video entry, you have to sing the verse and chorus of any song that will show off your vocal prowess. The song may be performed with or without accompaniment. Please note that live videos in front of audiences, music videos or produced singles and tracks will NOT be allowed.

The winning contestant will win a recording contract with Universal Music South Africa alongside other exciting prizes which will be announced soon.

M-Net has also hinted at a shake-up on this season of The Voice South Africa as it reveals that it will announce the names of the coaches and presenters soon.
