YOU Spectacular 2016 winners announced!

The winners of this year’s YOU Spectacular 2016 awards were revealed at a glittering ceremony on Saturday 16 July at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg.

Once again the show was hosted by the quirky tongue lasher Anne Hirsch.

Who as always brought her unique style to the proceedings of the show, treating the audience to some interpretive dance as well as her eccentric brand of humour.

Bonang Matheba was the star of the night, walking away with four awards in total, including those for Most Stylish Female Celeb and Social Media Star.

I mean the show should have been called the Bonang Awards.

Rapper boyfriend AKA and Bonang took to the stage to accept their award for Favourite Couple.

The pair caused a sensation earlier in the evening when they arrived together on the red carpet, making the YOU Spectacular 2016 their first official appearance together.

Expresso presenter Katlego Maboe walked away with the award for Favourite TV Presenter but lost out to AKA in the Most Stylish Male Celeb category.

The award for Sexiest Man went to actor and TV presenter Maps Maponyane, while actress and TV presenter Minnie Dlamini triumphed in the Sexiest Woman category.

The night’s musical performances were a tribute to legendary artists who died over the past year and included Lloyd Cele doing a phenomenal cover of Stand By Me by Ben E King, Thembeka Mnguni wowing the audience with her performance of You’re My World by Cilla Black, Mathew Gold did his version of When Doves Cry by Prince which I thought was terrible but you can watch below and decide for yourself. Graeme Watkins doing a brilliant version of David Bowie’s Let’s Dance and to end off the show Jason Hartman performed an excellent version of Hotel California by Glen Frey and the Eagles

I am so livid because I landed up losing 2 of the 3 memory cards I had with all my photos from the night except for these few.
