The fifth season of SA's Got Talent returns with host Tats Nkonzo and judge Shado Twala, who is joined by two brand new judges - DJ Fresh and Lalla Hirayama - in the show's brand new primetime slot of 18h05 on Sundays.
The first six episodes feature the theatre auditions, which consisted of contestants from Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. Hopeful candidates showcase their talents to judges and audiences with the hope of securing that "yes" to get them to the next round.
Some contestants fail to impress the judges and audience while others are delighted at the approval they receive from the judges and the audience. The judges don't hold back on their thoughts on contestants and viewers can expect both humorous and heated moments amongst the three judges.
Expect many assumptions to be crushed as the judges bring the unexpected to the table in their interactions and reactions to contestants.
Tats Nkonzo's funny side is seen throughout the show as he interviews and interacts with the contestants before and after they take the stage. Sometimes he's congratulating them, other times he is comforting them.
Watch the show to find out who will make it. The show airs weekly until the live semi-finals, which begin on 19 October, 2014, with the live finale on 9 November.
Tats got his big break when he made the Top 8 of the SABC1 reality competition So You Think You're Funny!, in 2008. Once the show ended he was asked to tour with the Top 3 from the season.
