Mzansi’s music talents get to be The Ultimate Shot
We have seen television castings from back in the day when panorama was the color of classical screens to the season of shows that brings both joy and unforgettable excitements into the homes of millions around the country. In all those shared moments we have enjoyed talents rise and fall, and have seen numerous judges pour out their hearts at the stages, but we fail to consider the harsh consequences the words of most judges would have on the dreams of many trying and upcoming artistes.
After almost a decade of television casting shows, a company called Alto Max Recordings has successfully launched a web based auditioning project that allows artistes the opportunity to compete on a versatile platform that gives ease of use and a fan base to potential artistes, with no judges but by votes with a click of a button.
The Ultimate Shot as the project is called allows contestants a shot at their talent by giving them a chance to create a fan base for themselves and market their talents through the unlimited opportunities on the internet and on social Media.
The Project has 2 rounds and runs twice yearly, in the first round the video uploading page is made live, allowing as many contestants as possible the opportunity to record and upload a 60 seconds video of themselves singing or rapping to their favorite songs.
The contestants then create awareness for their videos to get people to watch and vote them. 10 videos with the highest votes enter for the final round in which votes are gathered and the top 3 are selected winners. 1st in place receives a record deal as well as prize money, 2nd and 3rd are given price money for their place in the final vote count.
The project kicked off in July for its first Season and successfully recorded 56 videos submission on-line. 10 videos having the highest votes were automatically entered for the second round of the competition that starts on the 17th of October

A special thank you to all contestants who participated and everyone else who voted for their favourable contestant. #TheUltimateShotSA
