Miss SA 2021 officials have revealed the names of the artists who will be performing at the pageant. 

“At this year’s pageant finale we are bringing you the best of local talent ready to entertain and bring the audience to their feet!” it wrote on Instagram. 

The Ndlovu Youth Choir will be making an appearance at the ceremony.  

The choir put South Africa on the map in 2019 when they made it to the finals of 'America’s Got Talent'.

Earlier this year, they announced that they will be featuring in a new Disney production called 'Harmonious'. 

“First on the line-up is the multitalented @choirafrica which took the US by storm when they became the first choir in the history of America's Got Talent to make the finals! We have no doubt that they’ll blow the crowd away in the same manner on the 16th of October live from the Grand arena,” Miss SA wrote on Instagram.

Ntokozo says she is excited to be performing at an event she has been following for years.

I look forward to seeing all the girls and I wish them nothing but success whether or not they wear the crown,” she told Miss SA pageant.
