“… There are no snakes, no dogs and no dinosaurs.”

Hands up everyone who was surprised to see Cleo in the Top 3? Be honest now. Even SHE was caught off guard. And what a Finale hey. Yoh!!

From the get-go George entertained the socks off me. He brought a whole new level to his beatboxing – 5 different sounds at the same time!! He was my favourite to win, and got a well-deserved second place.

But Darren blew us all away with his moves. I don’t know what you call it, but he did it. He even checked his infinity self out behind him and made a little joke about it. And did I detect some suppressed emotion in his translator’s voice? Congratulations Darren! You deserve that R250,000 prize.

Ai Louwtjie. I SO wanted you to be in the top 3. You got some great exposure and I’m sure the scouts spotted you. Did you have something like a rubber thimble on your finger, or… never mind.

Willem and Louis gave me goose bumps! Tried to sing along, but I would have ruined it for Henk next to me.

Wonder boy Kaylon should definitely audition for So You Think You Can Dance when he’s old enough. I loved the Mango Groove music, ‘cause everyone is a special star.

Last act on was Cleo Filander. I can honestly say that I didn’t recognise last night’s song. Judging by the tears in Ian’s eyes she did it justice.

Do you think the contestants get Lunchbar hampers?

In the end, the best act won. All the best for your plan Darren!

Some of the acts were so nervous. And it’s didn’t help much that the judges were voicing the not-quite-exciting atmosphere. But I still think it was good entertainment.

Julian Hepburn strutted the stage with a jazz number. Strong voice, and I kept on hoping Martine was watching.

I felt so sorry for Louis Cason! I cringed every time he dropped his balls – sheim man. Loved the Pulp Fiction soundtrack 😀 And who do you know who can juggle behind their backs!?

Did Cadence take their name from decadence? Cause they WERE decadent! This all girl hip-hop dance group entertained the crowd in their matching outfits and white shades.

And then they had to bring animals onto the show. The lights, the people, the stage and the sparkling outfits of their trainers had the dogs in a bit of a tizz. But you can see the training and effort the trainers put in with the dogs. They still performed and danced wit the dogs.

I started getting worried about the lack of –WOW- so far from the performers. Willem and Louis raised the bar with their harmony. Their voices complement each other so well.

I enjoyed Gregory Mabusela and his ‘khe-khe horn’. Kudos to him for making the horn from a recycled plastic coke bottle and what looks like a tap/valve thingy. And I would much rather prefer hearing THAT than the vuvuzela next year at the world cup.

I had been waiting all week for the last act. After George (?Jeorge) and Louwtjie, my next favourite to win is Kalon Badenhorst – I just call him mini MJ. Surprise surprise. He didn’t moonwalk all over the stage this time (which he probably should have done), but I have to agree with Ian – I didn’t like some of his moves. He added some local flavour and knows how to entertain the crowd.

And with that I get to say SUPER congrats to Kalon for making the viewers vote! And good luck too Willem and Louis too for tomorrow’s final. Keep up your dream Gregory, the ‘khe-khe’ is bound to hit the streets.
