As predicted by TVSA when it looked like it was touch-and-go
for LIVE presenter Tbo: the show is launching a nationwide talent search to find new presenters to join the new season of the show.
We bet our TV's it would happen - something we don't
do lightly - so we're very relieved by the news.
Whether or not newbies will replace the current presenters hasn't been confirmed but if the search delivers pizzazz , the current crowd could soon be SO last season.
The search is open to 18 to 25 year-old guys and gals. The search will run for four weeks and 100 finalists will be chosen to do screentests in Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Jozi. The 100 finalists will be closely reviewed and a final four will be chosen to go to Jozi for a final phase of the competition.
All the info on what you need to do to enter will be on LIVE this Friday (2 April) at 21h00.
In the meantime, these are questions from the show about what they're looking for:
"Do you think you have what it takes to become a presenter of one of Mzansi’s hottest and most-popular music show? Do you live and breathe music? Are you on top of your game when it comes to the scoop and the hot spots that make up the SA music industry? And most importantly: do you have the X factor - that undeniable something that could turn you into a top presenter?
Do you have a good voice, good looks, sex appeal, charm, charisma, presence, spontaneity and most importantly, the ability to perform on LIVE?"
