YOTV Presenter To Host SYTYCD SA

Former YOTV presenter Sade Giliberti has been named as the host of the South African version of the dance reality competition So You Think You Can Dance.

The show kicks off on SABC1 on Saturday 9 August.

Giliberti was last seen on SABC1 18 months ago, presenting such kid's shows as Wildroom and Dlala Skhokho. Now 23, SYTYCD SA represents her first adult presenting role.

Although she is an avid fan of the American version of the hit reality show, and confesses to loving dancing – she's quite content to stay behind the mic, where she's most comfortable.

"I don't think I'll be pulling any of those fancy dance moves myself, but it's nice to dream, isn't it?" she said.

Auditions for the show began in Johannesburg on 27 and 28 June. For some pics of the Jozi auditions, click here.

The auditions now move to Durban's B.A.T. Centre on 13 July, then to 14 Hope Street in Cape Town on 19 July, and wrapping up on 30 July at the Port Elizabeth Opera House.

Sade will be working her way through the crowds at the auditions, capturing a sense of the nerves, thrills, personalities and melodrama among the masses of would-be dance divas and dudes.

According to Sade, the excitement is already palpable.

"Part of my excitement stems from the fact that it's a reality show that's going out live. If I can pull this off, I can pull anything off!"

So You Think You Can Dance South Africa premieres on SABC1 on Saturday 9 August 2008, at 18h30.

I was beginning to wonder what happened to her. She's okay, and she's fresh. But im worried about the show, though..... I foresee loads of breakdancing.

She's a good presenter yena shem. I love the black dress though i think it would have looked much nicer had she been standing properly.

I foresee loads of breakdancing> hahahahaha

I think she'l do well, she's young, fresh and spunky plus she's interested in dance, good combination.....

WOW, I love Shade, but ke I must say I love her with her natural tom boyish look, for me the whole lady-like look is not for her. U can even see that she is uncomfortable in the black dress pose!!!

Back track 18 months agi.....I thought the girl was into being a guy like dress code and behaviour wise. Its amazing what 18m can do to a girl....She's looking hot.
She always reminded me of Lyn (you know the girl on Girl Friends - the nutty one) she looks a lot like her.

Awu phela, the girl has grown, she can't be a tomboy forever.....maybe she was trying to find herself, besides there's no place for tomboys in Jozi TV world unless she's planning on presenting Shiznizzz on Etv................lol

So true, Fluffy, she does have an element of Lyn in her!!!

"Awu phela, the girl has grown, she can't be a tomboy forever.....maybe she was trying to find herself"

She's definitely the BEST person for the job. I love this gal, especially when she's tomboyish. I think these ladylike pics were just taken for publicity, she can't be all formal presenting this typa show. Well done for this casting...she rocks!!!

<<<She always reminded me of Lyn (you know the girl on Girl Friends - the nutty one) she looks a lot like her.>>>  Same here!!! Another reason why I like her!!!

"I love this gal, especially when she's tomboyish. I think these ladylike pics were just taken for publicity"
@ B.S - thank God, I am not alone, Sade *happy Miss C?* really rocks with her tomboyish look and her personality is so great.

"you keep on bugging peple about their mistakes"
She gets a certain fulfilment from it yazi we Fluffy so I have gotten used u her!!

"i think uxhumile coz ingathi one of the parents ngudarkie, wayenevernac-nyana engacacanga kuYoTv, inwele yena akanazo kangako, wayengathi ngusisi we relaksa."
@ Cnglemom- Must be ukuthi uxhumile, coz even the scalp is not showing la evule indlela khona!

Cande, I had to find out from Drum...i think its this week's. It has Sis Reebs on the cover. I was like, what??/ when did this happen.. 2005, apparently. Phela I was still secretly planning to mistakenly cross his paths.  I was so disappointed. 

think these ladylike pics were just taken for publicity, she can't be all formal presenting this typa show. Well done for this casting...she rocks!!!

They better be just for marketing... Coz she really cant be in high-heels....while people are doing breakdancing.


Guys nimbonile uTbo friday he's getting there bafethu
