Ok Refilwe and others just give a try guys, u'll never know. LIVE has lost its touch, its no longer the same. I just tune in 2 check what B is wearing. I love Club808 even though i dont realy dig the presentes bt i like their choice of music. Miss B makayeke uku outshine abanye abantwana. Maybe its time 2 move on behind the scene . . . Just kidding ppl! LIVE wil die without her.

Refiloe, Thobile20 and Eros(Busisiwe Mahlangu)...unfortunately you have not made it through the next round.


You cannot even read simple instructions:

Aspiring presenters can enter the audition process via SABC1's website here: LIVE auditions.

Note: Applicants are required to fill in an online application form and a motivation paragraph of “Why they want to be a Live presenter.” 


Please guys go for some English lessons and tell them to teach you proper English and focus more on your spelling and lose the mxit lingo.

Triple kwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaas at this

"i believe my presense in the live stage will surely take the show to new heights..and ive also noticed im good with people and have alwys drawn attention by just being myself."
"hey live people" 
"i would great for the job"
"..i love music,cant go a day without it."
",it because I love been in front of people I'm an out spoken person,freindly,funny..I dnt think there is Anything dat will stand on ma way...much luv blackbarbiev."

Like really now....poor kids, go look for i change from your English teachers.

I missed the 13 yr old who poisoned his Mommma ... Maddie got it down Patt ... Let's go home ... Snuca is also on a roll ... But do these Youngstown actually believe these things cause a ding in the Universe ... Some of them'll be trading Poon like Delisiwe for favours ............... If Youngstown actually listened when we tell them Showbizz is brutal, violent and leaves no bones .... only burps and Gas ...... and Sunday Sun & Sowetan Sunday world ... which Maddie so neatly wrapped into a sausage bun for us to quickly consume & digest. Good luck to all those about to sell their souls for a lot of make-up & very hot lights !!!

Hai guys mina personally I feel these talent search things are such a farce. It's just a marketing ploy meanwhile they've already had someone in mind. They get people's hopes up and a lot of the times you'll find people travelling from other cities to attend auditions. I heard ukuthi Boity has been earmarked as the new Live presenter. I mean really she was awful on that media career guide what what, sounds like a constipated sheep or something. THIZA. Lunga Shabalala number 2 when there are thousands of talented people out there. mxiiiim.

Guys apparently there is an article in Isolezwe that confirms Boity is the new Live presenter. Could the SABC not be clever about this? She doesnt even have a vid on the site which is how the 200 or so finalists are to be chosen. *claps hands once*. Poor hopefuls.
