Following these Saturday highlights, through June and July, six of Top Billing’s prime-time Tuesday slots will be totally devoted to the drama, the thrills and comedy of the finalists running the gauntlet.

I am going to audition and hopefully I shall make it to the top 10. Cappy my love, preparing a link means you have a fictitious link, like as in an insert you are introducing to your viewers and putting it in context so the viewers know what the next insert is all about. I shall be comepeting with thee at the show neh?

So there's no auditions in Johannesburg?!

On these audition things your presenting might be good but if you dont have the look/image they're looking for libala boss. Its just a gamble coz some cannot be good presenting wise but if they have the look they get the job. Think Minnie on that LIVE presenter search thingie, that was the case with her. 

So good luck to those who would be auditioning.

so guys wt about those with pimples nd dark marks daz that mean thy cant live their top biling dream?lol thz industry
Reply from: Leeloh Tuesday, May 22, 2012 12:36 PM
@fantacious, yes pimples and acne are bad for television but nothing that a little blemish stick and foundation can't fix, besides make-up for television is superthick and you might get pimples anyway (think muvhango actors) so yeah its nothing that television make-up cant fix and you will have money for the dermatologist after dear... nothing more irritating that watching your favourite show and thinking, gosh I could have done so much better than those people... think about it.

@everyone looks can get you there but talent keeps you there... so even though you beautiful, your talent wil make us watch and never miss the show... so Talent is a big plus, ratings must go up and stay up, thats the difference between beauty and talent, beauty fades away but talent doesn't... TALENT NB... for beauty modelling is great.  And remember when Anele was on Top Billing for a season? its cause she is talented so sis size 36, do ur thing dear, rock that curve-hugging outfit, red lipstick, pout and make us proud at the auditions! Besides, its time that SA had a beautiful thick presenter, LoL thick is the new Thin...

See yall at the Johannesburg auditions and may thee most beautiful and talented person win... Mcccwwuuuuaaaaa
