The Voice South Africa is coming back! M-Net announced on November 2 that the singing talent show will return to screens in February 2019.

Radio personality Anele Mdoda has been announced as the new host of the show, taking over from TV presenter Lungile Radu.

The first two seasons gave Mzansi all kinds of feels. Here's a look at some of the moments that kept viewers glued to their screens.

Vernon Barnard gets a standing ovation from judges

He was just 22-years old when he auditioned for The Voice SA.  Vernon was born with glaucoma and lost his sight at the age of five. During the blind audition, Barnard sang Story of My Life by One Direction and from that moment he captured the hearts of viewers.

A smooth and modern rendition

Luke Lovemore and Thembeka Mngini of season one fame delivered a powerful performance. They sang a rendition of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah in the second season of the show and let's just say people got teary.

Fatman becomes Mzansi's man

Johan Brummer, affectionately known as Fatman, was one of the season 2 contestants who stole the hearts of viewers. It wasn't just his musical talent that made viewers crush hard, but also his sense of humour. In round one of the live show, Fatman turned Kurt Darren's Kaptein into a soulful ballad.

Personality and a voice 

Performing Cee-Lo Greeen's Forget You, Bubbles had audiences on their feet and the judges ready to turn their chairs. A fusion between her fun personality and a bold voice made for a stellar performance during the blind auditions in season two.

Craig Lucas forever

Season 2 winner Craig Lucas was consistent in delivering powerful performances . One of his best performance was his rendition of Purple Rain by Prince.

Yup. Season three contestants have to major goals.
