UPDATE: As of Friday, 12 February, 2021, Online Auditions for Season 17 of Idols are now closed.
Idols South Africa launched its first-ever Online Auditions last year (2020) and they ran in tandem with mass auditions just before South Africa went into a nationwide lockdown. With the pandemic persisting into the new year, auditions went fully online on the 29th of January 2021, in-line with lockdown restrictions, to ensure the safety of the many hopefuls. Just seven days later, South Africa’s largest singing competition has garnered 10 000 entries and counting!
This is a testament to the fact that Mzansi is still hungry for a shot at winning this competition and they believe the platform is their best shot at becoming the singing sensations they aspire to be.
There are fewer than 5 000 entry spots remaining, and those who are interested in being a part of Idols SA Season 17 should enter before the 15 000 target is reached. Online entries will close upon reaching this figure or on Sunday, 14 February 2021 at 10PM (whichever comes first).
To enter: Your video must be 30 seconds long and contain only singing. All other information we need from you must be completed correctly on the entry from. It is important for the participants to prepare their 30-second-long clip and all the relevant information before they log on to submit their entry. Still unsure about anything?
