We've reached the eve of the 25th South African Music Awards and the excitement has reached actual fever pitch in South Africa. We've already started predicting who might win as well as taking a closer look at what some of our stars might wear on the red carpet but there's one other important segment of the upcoming show that has us buzzing with excitement: The performances.

From a series of nostalgic throwbacks, to some of 2019's most impressive artists, we are expecting an eclectic blend of incredible live acts to hit the stage. RISA CEO, Nhlanhla Sibisi couldn't hide his excitement at what's about to come when he said:

‘This is a celebration fit for 25 years of SAMA. The line up speaks volumes of the magnitude of this ceremony. We are proud of all the musicians who will engender the spirit of festivity and revelry with their talent. SAMA25 will be a memorable one.’

So who can you expect to see on stage? The ZAlebs team did some digging and once we found out who was performing we couldn't hide it from you. Here's what you can expect tomorrow night.

Throwback: Bongo Maffin and Trompies
Bongo Maffin and Trompies will be rolling back the years as they each take to the stage with some familiar favourites. Which songs would you request?

Hot off the back of his first ever Colours Show, Sjava will hit the stage at #SAMA25 where we hope he'll perform Umama for us!

Sho Madjozi
Can we get an iyah?! Sho Madjozi will be bringing her typically energetic performance to the SAMAs and we can't wait to see what kind of heat she has in store for us.

Kelly Khumalo
Kelly Khumalo is a nominee on the night as well as a performer. The mother of two boasts some of the most stunning live vocals in the country and this will be proof.

We can't wait to see how it all pans out on the SAMAs stage. Which of these artists do you think will steal the show?
