This event was fierce because the judges had to pick 3 winners of the 3 categories. Which are:
1. Best music performance
2. Best sing performance
3. Best dance performance
Best music performance goes to Balance Gab with his DJ set taking us back to nostalgic days of HipHop. His DJ set also had an exceptional R2D2 routine that made the crowd stay in shock. Who knew R2D2 could rap? (Instagram: @balancegabtheflow)
Best Dance performance went for Project Inspire Creativity. This Dance group made a combination of sleeping and Pop/HipHop music and unbelievable dance choreography that made it an experience to dream about. (Instagram: @projectinspirecreativity)
The best singing performance went to Daniella, Gabriella, and Lethisia Bosman. This family really made the crowd and judges build up so many emotions when they sang because a mother and her 2 daughters really shined when they were on stage.
