This year Idols SA is giving more people a chance to audition on Mzansi’s grandest talent platform for 48 hours only. And the good news is that, all of this will happen online starting midnight on Tuesday 25 February and close at midnight, Thursday 27 February 2020.
Yes! Pop up auditions have gone online and you as a talent will be afforded an opportunity to audition regardless of where you are. You can now enter Idols SA Season 16 by posting your video audition on Idols website. Note that this is for a limited time only, and the online audition platform will be open for 48 hours.
So, here is how it all works:
To Audition you will need to enter the below information online
1. Your full name
2. Your SA ID number
3. Your phone number
4. Your e-mail address
5. Where you live at the moment
6. A 30-second video clip of your Audition [STRICTLY SINGING ONLY]
Once your audition has been submitted, an automated email response will be sent saying that the audition has been received. Entrants will receive a further email informing them whether their audition was successful or not. If successful, the participant will get to audition in person, in front of the Idols SA Judges.
If you have already been to an audition for Season 16 this year and still want to give it another try, you are still welcome to enter online.
Note that you are not permitted to play a musical instrument while auditioning online. Please submit an entry of you only singing. There’s also no need to introduce yourself as part of your audition.
