It's music reality competition time again and soon our TV's are going to be just about the music competitions. Well, not really, but you get what we mean. So from Sunday, 13th April 2014 at 5.30pm, on Mzansi Magic the show returns and promises to blow us all away.
Mzansi Magic recently confirmed that the season one judges of Clash of the Choirs are returning for a second season, which is great as they mostly did a great job. Even though sometimes we were pissed with their critique, the top three were all worthy of the crown.
Bonang Matheba will also, once again, grace our screens on another channel, as host of Clash of the Choirs. She has been travelling with the production team, Endemol, going to all the auditions around the country.
There are new choir masters this season and I could easily say they are a notch up from last season's team. Not that there's anything wrong with them, but Bra Sipho Hotstix Mabuse, was rather disappointing last year and the judges found it very hard to critique him, without feeling like they were disrespecting a legend.
This year's choirmasters are Liquideep’s Ziyon, Malaika’s Tshedi, HHP, Robbie Malinga, Moneoa, Simphiwe Dana and Skwatta Kamp's Lebogang “Shugasmakx” Mothibe. It's an interesting group of choirmasters. Ziyon, Tshedi and Shugasmakx are/were all in groups. The rest are solo artists (Robbie Malinga is mostly a producer). Even though Moneoa is the youngest choirmaster, she's talented and if Khaya Mthethwa did it and won the competition, she could easily do the same.
Even better is that musical maestro, RJ Benjamin is back as musical director, which is awesome! He's a great source of advice and he got more acclaim last year when he sang bass on Idols as Bunny performed Proud Mary. Thank goodness they kept him on.
Bring on 13 April!
