Kids with Talent S.A. aims to showcase the musical talents of South African children, and to give every child the chance to feel like a star. We provide children the opportunity to perform in a professional and positive environment.
We offer two different platforms for children to participate in; the Experience and the Competition.
The Experience is a non-competitive leg, for novice performers, kids who are a little nervous to perform in front of judges, and kids who would like to gain some more stage experience. You may enter both the Experience and the Competition.
The Competition is for kids who are looking to win their share of prizes to the value of R100 000. The competition consists of three legs: The Regionals, the Finals, and the Grand Finale.
The Experience and Competition are open to kids turning 6-18 this calendar year. If you are turning 19 this year, you would be too old to participate. Kids may perform using any musical instrument, including vocals, in any musical style/genre. There is also a duet category, where any combination of instruments/vocals may pair up to participate. In 2020 we are launching a brand new category for group items, consisting of 3-6 kids per group. With each entry for the competition, each child needs to prepare two performances (two different songs). The time limit on each performance is 100 seconds. For the Experience kids need to prepare one item of up to 2 and a half minutes. Groups must prepare a program of 5-9 minutes. As soon as the performer starts singing, talking or playing their instrument, the timer starts running. Our events will take place in the 2nd and 3rd terms of the year (according to the public school calendar). The finals will take place in October.
We host events on Fridays and Saturdays at private schools’ auditoriums, across Gauteng. If you reside further than 50 km from one of our event locations, you may enter via a video clip.
