Tonight's second episode of SA's Got Talent
features a medley of auditions from Jozi, Cape Town and Durban.
Some of the acts coming up include cheerleaders (who collapse apparently), singers in jungle masks (save us!), a barmen who thinks he's Tom Cuise in Cocktail; and Rodeo dancers.
We have no clue what those are but imagine they do rodeo on aggro-bulls that dance.
In Cape Town, Randall Abrahams' snake makes an appearance (see his interview
for more about this.) The snake's called Viken and does an exotic dance with his 42-year old (creepy-alert) owner Lori Kay, who calls herself The Snake Lady.
In Johannesburg there's a character who goes by the name of Dr See-Me Mataozen (a nut-job obviously) and there's a hip hop contemporary dance number by an 11-year old called Kalon Badenhorst.
Also in the chorus line: Pantsula Tap Dancers, Darren Rajbal - an 18-year-old year old, hearing impaired hip hopper from Durbs; and a crowd called Hero Fire - from the sounds of it they're going to set each other alight and then try to save themselves. Could be fun if it doesn't work!
PS on snakes: there's a girl up the road from our offices (must be about 20) who walks around with a snake wrapped round her, with tattoo's everywhere - on her/not the snake. Snake types are always so unecessarily whack.
SA's Got Talent is on SABC2 at 19h30.
