AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!! I was so excited to see the incredible Christina Aguilera live at the ANN7 South African of the Year awards next month but unfortunately, the singing sensation “regretfully had to pull out” of the event because of a scheduling conflict on The Voice.
Apparently, “The schedule change requires her to be in the US on the day of the SATY awards.In a message to the organisers yesterday, Aguilera expressed her disappointment at having to cancel and said she hoped to perform in South Africa soon.”
Since the award ceremony had a ridiculously high price to see the singing sensation alongside Jason Derulo, Chainosky, AKA, The Soil and Mafikizolo, the organizers have decided to make this year’s spectacular a private, invite-only event. Everyone who bought tickets to the show will be refunded by TicketPro. You can call their call centre on 0861008277 to ensure prompt refunds.
“Aguilera obviously was a big drawcard but top international performer Jason Derulo as well as our superstar line-up of South African artists will still perform on the night of the awards,”Moegsien Williams, ANN7 Editor-in-chief said.
“It will be a live broadcast on ANN7 (channel 405) which means the South African public will still be able to enjoy and be part of this year’s SATY awards by voting for the nominees in the various categories.”
The channel also revealed that they are planning on securing another international headliner as well as more local talent to add to the bill. The award show will broadcast on the 17th of October, 2015 on the news channel.
