“It’s thrilling to think that the next South African Idol might already be in this very queue!” said Idols host and now also co-producer, ProVerb.
“This year Idols is looking for a funky, cool, versatile singer with soul,” says M-Net Communications Manager Lani Lombard, “someone who has the talent and personality to captivate the imagination of an entire nation.” Season 8 of Idols is a co-production between M-Net and Mzansi Magic and will be broadcast on both channels from June 2012.
On Saturday, 11 February auditions move to Durban, at uShaka Marine World; on 18 February it’s Cape Town’s turn at the GrandWest Casino And Entertainment World; and the final auditions for 2012 will take place at the Walter Sisulu Hall in Kliptown, Soweto, on Saturday, 25 February.
