Jozi are you ready?
After a successful series of auditions around the country, MTN Megastar will be conducting their very last round of auditions this Saturday at the Maslow Hotel, 16 September 2017 from 10h00. So, is there a Mega Superstar out there waiting to be discovered? If you think you have what it takes to be the next big musical star, then this is your last opportunity to flex your vocal cords and show the judges what you are made of.
Those who cannot make it to the auditions will not be left out in the cold – The MTN MegaStar will also allow contestants to audition online by uploading a short video on MTN Play (mtnplay.co.za) which will give them a chance to receive an express pass at the regional auditions – online auditions close midnight on Friday, 15 September.
The grand prize winner will walk away with a once in a lifetime opportunity of signing a recording deal with Temple Records, and the renowned US based producer Mike Will, who has worked with award winning artists such as Beyoncé, Rihanna and Kendrick Lamar to name a few.
T-Bo Touch, together with KO, Kwesta and Nomuzi Mabena, will be judging the auditions and will select a total of ten contestants from the five auditions that will be held across the country. The top 10 contestants will be housed in a mansion in the upmarket suburb of Steyn City in Johannesburg where they will be required to perform and complete allocated tasks.
The elimination and judging process will not only look at singing talent, but it will also consider other contributing factors such as commitment, hardwork and people’s skills which will be accessed based on the tasks given to them.
The process of elimination will see contestants being reduced weekly based on the public voting, and the winner of the grand prize will also be voted for by the public. The public can vote for their preferred contestants via an SMS to 40636 R1/SMS. They will also stand a chance to win weekly prizes and one lucky subscriber stands to drive away with an Audi A1.
