When they go, the choir will take a special part of Limpopo with them, according to TimesLIVE. The choir is taking colourful beaded outfits that have become part of their act with them - these beads were designed and added to their outfits by Moutse villagers.

Ndlovu Youth Choir's musical director, Ralf Schmitt, is keeping their chosen songs for the final rounds a secret.

He's only willing to say:

"All I can say is, it will be proudly South African."
