Ka Jive Season Four sets off to the next stage following the third audition held at Times Entertainment Studio in Blantyre on Saturday.
The judges had a tough time to select the 10 groups to join the 20 groups that made it through during the previous two auditions.
With the auditions beamed live on Times Television completed, people should brace for more twists which will include evictions in the next level.
Just like in the two auditions, participants in the third audition came from places as far as Dzaleka in Dowa District.
Some of the groups that made it through on Saturday include Anomix, Britos, Dreamworks, Soweto Boys, Team Ice, The Most Wanted and Messenger.
Times Group Commercial Manager Lusayo Msukwa, said the auditions have been a success and that they were satisfied with the 30 groups that the judges have selected.
“The third auditions went well. Once again, we saw groups giving us exciting routines and we hope to see more as we go to the next level. As I have indicated, we now have the final list of 30 groups that will now compete in elimination shows,” Msukwa said.
He said a break next weekend before kick-starting the elimination shows.
Msukwa said the dance competition with its signature Tivine Zimenezi runs up to January next year if all goes according to plan.
The winner in the dance competition, which is aimed at unearthing dance talent and also help to uplift the creative industry will walk away with K1 million with the runner up receiving K400,000.
On Friday, Mchinji Boys led by Justice Katika also partnered Times Group in the competition dangling K150,000 for the third prize.
“We are thankful to players who have come out to be part of the competition. This is part of empowering the youth and at the same time show that dance is a talent that needs to be given respect,” Msukwa said.
Meanwhile, one of the judges Robert Magasa, has said Season Four will be full of surprises.
“I am sure we will see the ability of every group with the task given every episode. It is one thing to dance but it takes pure talent to execute a task and that now needs creativity,” Magasa said.
