On Friday night (28 May 2010) SABC1's LIVE revealed the Top 4 contenders chosen from the show's nationwide Talent Search.

The foursome were introduced and each presented an insert to show off their presenting skills.

Voting lines opened during the show and the voting time for viewers to choose faves was scheduled to close on Monday, 7 June, with the winner announcement on Friday, 11 June.

Between then and now, these times have changed.

Voting lines will now close this Friday, 4 June and the winner will be announced on the show on Saturday, 12 June .

Because of the broadcast of the World Cup, LIVE will move from Friday nights at 21h00 to Saturday's at 18h30, as from Saturday 12 June, for the duration of the tournament. It takes over from Class Act: which ends this Saturday (5 June).

Minenhle has my vote. I was very irritated with that Gavin I think he should replace Mpendulo on Jika Majika and that Afro gal must replace Zizo on Selimathunzi.

02 Jun 2010 16:08

02 Jun 2010 16:10

02 Jun 2010 16:16

Nandi is too tjatjarag n tries too much to be ur gal B: There can only be one B .... Gavin too much of Akon's worshiper aka Tbo touch so no other mrapper for me..... Nkanyiso must go relieve sis Reebs in gospel times too much hand usage *think anishay'izandla lapho nina* .... Minenhle you are the future.. You r just urself n natural

02 Jun 2010 16:17

Minenhle luks like Ravern

02 Jun 2010 16:32

Nandi - she's a B wanna be PERIOD!! she finished me when she was yapping crazy lots next to Bonang and dancing... ntombazana please cut the childish facial expressions mani they're three much

Nkanyiso - i don't know...not sure about him

Minenhle - not sure

Gavin - such a wanna be too...the hands all over the place were so irritating – its like he was on some “rap to fame show”

i couldn't finish the show b/z of Nandi and Gavin....

02 Jun 2010 16:33

Now that you've mention it myname, i see the resemblence...*uyapopola neh*

02 Jun 2010 17:26

Loved Nandi!* Live was getting boring.. she's mnandi and stunning(face for TV)! GO NANDI*

02 Jun 2010 17:39

I struggle to see the similarities between Nandi &Bonang both physically and performance wise. Nandi =Durban swag+ Afro. Bonang= Jhb swag+weave. Both beautiful& full of life, but very different. Like Nandi* the show would be exciting with her. Live needs Life*  

02 Jun 2010 17:47

Nkanyiso is original, then my vote goes to him. We don't need too much tjatjarag on our screens.

03 Jun 2010 07:44

Nandi is a bit 2 much, minenhle is da one, nkanyiso is a bit 2 dull mayb He cld do da lotto o som, as 4 gavin we already hav touch.

03 Jun 2010 09:00

I'll vote for Nandi..that show needs a tjatjarag person and she's got that unique DBN phapios vibe ..and I'm a Durbanite

however I like Minenhle and yah she looks like my other favorite schleb Raven Symone..
