The challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic taught us one thing: The show must go on!
Agri’s Got Talent 2020 was so much more than a singing and skills development competition – it encouraged, uplifted and was a means through which agri-communities all over South Africa came together under joyous song!
Agri’s Got Talent 2021 will be executed as a hybrid event, with a strong focus on virtually connecting with contestants and their fans, as well as hosting (if Covid-19 pandemic regulations allow) our finals as a prestigious gala evening after the Top 10 complete their performance training.

Each contestant receives a continues point (counts 30% towards total score) by the vocal and self-development coaches. A crowd favourite vote is run on Facebook and received via Whatapp/SMS. The crowd favourite vote counts 10% towards the total score. A number can only vote for one contestant and only one vote per number is counted.
