You Spectacular nominees announced, new public vote category

The list of nominees for You Spectacular has been released for the event that will be held at The Teatro at Montecasino, Fourways, Joburg, on Saturday, 28 July, 2012. This year the public will also vote in a new category: Favourite Comedian.
It is up to the fans to decide who will win the most awards. Last year popular Top Billing presenter Jeannie D walked away with three awards.

If you would like to be at the award ceremony, get your ticket at R100 a person at Computicket. And don't forget to vote.

Presenters will be dressed by South African online fashion store Zando and everyone who votes for their favourite celeb stands a chance to win one of 10 vouchers worth R1000 each to spend at Zando.

Beauty advice

Black Opal will again give beauty advice at the event and will glam up some of the ceremony-goers and nominees.

Fans who vote for their favourite star will also be in line for the big prize of a luxury holiday for two in Mauritius, sponsored by Island Light Holidays.

To vote, send an SMS with the letters YS and the code of your favourite star (see below for codes), as well as your name, surname and town to 32113 (for example: to vote for Graeme and Morgan Smith in the Favourite Couple category SMS YS 3A and your name and town to 32113). Each SMS costs R1. You may vote as many times as you want and for more than one person in the same category, but each vote must be sent in a separate SMS.
