Debashine Thangavelo, who writes for our sister newspaper magazine, Tonight, also reported this morning about some of the personalities we can expect to appear on the show. Production company, Rapid Blue continue producing the show, while the judges and the hosts also return. Hoping for more zingers and barbs from the judges and less 'absolutely's' from the hosts- specifically from Roxy Burger.

It must be noted though that it's getting increasingly difficult to get information about shows out of the SABC. It's a worrying trend, actually. It's like they don't care so much about the PR for their shows because they know people will tune in, anyway. It's alarming.
Anyway, let's hope it's going to be a good season. And may the most talented dancer, who excites us on the dance floor, win. Not like previous seasons when the most famous or sexiest person won.
Oh and also, I hope for the results show, the judges and hosts change their clothes, so we can at least believe that the show is being screened to us live? It's terrible having to watch the results show a day after and see the judges and hosts in the clothes they wore the previous evening and have us believe the show is 'Live'.
Tune in on Friday, on SABC3 at 7.30pm
