Idols SA Online Pop-Up Auditions:
For the first time in the history of Idols SA, you will be able to submit an ONLINE Pop-Up Audition from anywhere in South Africa.

Submissions open on the Idols SA official website on Tuesday, 25th February at midnight for 48 Hours only. This simply means that they will close on Thursday, 27 February 2020.

Below is how it all works:

To Audition you will need to enter the below information online;
– Your full name
– Your SA ID number
– Your phone number
– Your e-mail address
– Where you live at the moment
– A 30-second video clip of your Audition (strictly singing only)

Once an Audition has been submitted, an automated email response will be sent saying that the audition has been received. Entrants will receive a further email informing them whether their audition was successful or not. If successful, the participant will get to audition in person, in front of the Idols SA Judges.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have already been to an Audition for Season 16 this year, you are still welcome to enter online.You can also go to a physical Audition if you have entered online this season.

Guidelines to follow:

  • You cannot play an instrument while singing for your Online Audition, purely singing only please.
  • There’s also no need to introduce yourself as part of your Audition. We have your details already. Just jump right in!
  • You are still welcome to sing your own song.
  • All other rules for entering Idols SA are online and still apply.

Entry Rules:

  • You must be between 16 years and 30 years old on the day of your Audition.
  • You must have South African residency.
  • You may not have an existing recording or management deal.
  • The Judge’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
  • Your video must only be 30 seconds in duration.
