Jacques Terre'Blanche is a South African singer best known as a finalist on the second season of the M-Net reality television competition Idols, in 2003.

He was a celebrity contestant on the M-Net reality competition Survivor South Africa: Maldives, in 2011.

Terre'Blanche started voice training as a 15-year-old boy soprano, moving on to studying Classical Music and Jazz at UCT (University of Cape Town), majoring in voice.

It was during his studies that Jacques was encouraged to enter the Idols 2003 competition where he grabbed the attention of many South Africans.

Coming third in the competition didn't stop Jacques from using what he calls his "stepping stone" into the South African music industry.

Jacques recorded his first album, "EQ" with Dave Thompson and the Sony BMG Team, producing a jazz-influenced album which was released in October 2004. His single "Endlessly" was nominated for a SAMA Award and in the same year was awarded the Crystal Award in the category Best Male Newcomer – music/stage/screen.

Although a singer, Jacques has been offered various opportunities within the industry. He played the part of Andy Gibb in the musical tribute to the Bee Gee's held at Carnival City (Paul Buckby Productions) and took part in the production of Swing Sisters at Carnival City alongside Loyiso Bala, Bianca Le Grange and Gloria Bosman.

Jacques collaborated with Mark Beling (Mean Mr Mustard) on the single "Everytime" and performed at the charity The Unite of the Stars, with international talent such as Will Young, Marcus Hernandez, Ronan Keating and Shayne Ward.

Jacques performed the male lead of Dick in the musical production of Debbie Does Dallas staring Caprice and Tanya Van Graan at the Civic Theatre in February 2007, and also enjoyed a three month run (ending 2010) as the guest artist in Janice Honeyman's pantomime Pinocchio, at the Johannesburg Theatre.

Jacques is an established artist in the industry with many achievements to his name. His second album backed by Gallo Records, "The Colour Red", enjoyed four number 1 hits and was nominated for a SAMA in the category Best Pop Album.

The album, unlike the first, has an R&B/Funk flavour and boasts tracks with international star Akon. Both tracks, "Natural Born Hustla" and "I Won't Forget", climbed the SA charts rapidly.

In addition, Jacques has established his own recording studio where he scouts, writes and records for upcoming SA talent. He also does voiceover and jingle production for the corporate sector. This aspect of music sees Jacques spreading his interests towards producing, whilst still concentrating on his career as a solo artist.

He was voted as one of the top 12 Cosmo Men 2008 and appeared in many publications, centre folds and calendars, and was in the running for Cleo Magazine's Most Eligible Bachelors 2010.

Jacques has been an ambassador for many major brands such as Redken Hair Products, Tommy Hilfiger, Craig Port's local clothing line, Jenna Clifford jewellery and Ray Ban sunglasses.
