All contestants certainly impressed the judges with their outstanding performances, showing off their passion and showcasing their phenomenal talent. It was a tough call for the judges this week as the talent was very good. Sadly we can only accept half of all the contestants that auditioned these past Saturday’s and the panel of independent judges have made their decision of who goes through to the semi-final round of the competition.
Congratulations to all contestants that have made it through!
Only 50% of the successful contestants from the first and second audition will face the heat and will battle it out in the semi-finals set to take place this Saturday, 7th October 2017. From the semi-final round, only 20 contestants will be selected by the panel of independent judges to go through to the grand finale that will be held on Saturday, 14th October 2017.
The event provides an opportunity for talented individuals to showcase their skills in stage performances by either providing a dance or singing act. Judging the entire competition are three independent judges who all stream from an entertainment industry of singing, dancing and choreography and are responsible for providing all contestants with professional tips and advice.
R 34 000 worth of cash is up for grabs and if you want a share of the grand prize, then Chatsworth’s Got Talent is where it all starts.
