7de Laan in search of 12 talented acts


7delaanIs it a new season of SA’s Got Talent? No-no, it’s 7de Laan with the launch of a new talent competition.

The soapie’s launched a countrywide search to find 12 acts to feature on the show. The acts will form part of a talent show story arc on the soapie and a winner will be chosen – who’ll win in real life.

The show’s looking for any acts of any age. Magicians, singers, artists, acrobats – any talent-show-talent.

How to enter:

The first step of the process involves submitting a video of your act. The show will be visiting six regions so there are different video submission dates and deadlines for each region (see them below).

To enter your act and video, you need to fill in this online form: 7de Laan Talent entry form. It will give you the option of including your video.
