Rave Review chatted to Allan Young, Business Manager of YOU Magazine, as well as Eddie Kalili, Assistant editor, Gauteng, about what guests can expect from this year's event. 

 

RR - The YOU Spectacular is always one of, if not the biggest social events on the SA calendar. What can everyone expect from this year’s event?

 

For starters, we have a new category: Best Comedian, and we’re really looking forward to honouring the funnymen who have taken centre stage in the South African entertainment scene over the last year. 

 

The other really exciting change to this year’s show is that we are moving to the Teatro at Montecasino in Fourways. It’s a bigger and more dynamic space, which inspired us to change the format of the show. We don’t want to give too much away, but the celebrities will not just be sitting down and waiting for their name to be called.  The show is also opened to the public. And we want to fill the auditorium with the fans who make the YOU Spectacular what it is – the biggest celebrity award show in the country. Tickets are on sale at Computicket for only R100 – we have just two weeks left and they are running out fast!  It will truly be a spectacular evening and we want everyone to join us.
