What's Happening?


Are DJ Fresh and Lalla Hirayama the new judges of SA's Got Talent?

The audition process of e.tv’s SA’s Got Talent has started, with Durban apparently impressing last week. The lines were long, with contestants we spoke to, saying they had stood from 7am till way after 6pm. So that must have been a great turn out.

But behind the scenes, there are a lot of changes going on, with DJ Fresh and Vuzu’s Lalla Hirayama being rumoured to be replacing Kabelo Mabalane and Ian von Memerty on the judges table. 

According to insiders, Ian has opted to not be on the show this year; apparently because he’s got a big play he’s busy with. A part of me wishes that it’s because producers of Strictly Come Dancing want him back on the show.

Meanwhile, Kabelo has been announced as the host of SABC 2’s #PlayYourPart, which starts next Sunday. The show will see Kabelo profile ordinary South Africans and their achievements. Shado Twala is now the only remaining original judge. I’m looking forward to the changes, especially Lalla.

The show has long needed a younger person, plus with Fresh’s big personality, it has the potential to be better than the previous seasons. Will Shado be overshadowed by the more popular Fresh and Lalla? I guess we'll see in August when the show premiers.
