The other co-organizer of the upcoming auditions and finalists event is Mr. Bertaux “Mr. Rude” Fleming of Xtratight Entertainment.
Both “Mr. Rude” and Angel say they are looking forward to seeing and hearing what the youths have to offer this time around, noting also that the team of judges are also excited about their task of selecting participants for the finalist round.
As far as format goes nothing has changed for the auditions, except that the organizers are this year asking the performers to have their music or accompanying sounds available on a memory stick to make it easier and quicker to set up for their respective acts.
Youth between the ages of 14 and 22 are invited to audition, but exceptions can be made depending on age and exceptional talent.
The categories of performances are also wide open, however the auditions are once again expected to be dominated by the popular, Rap, dance, vocals and instrumental categories.
“We are always looking for new and exciting talent, so we will not turn anyone away who is good at what they do,” said Angel.
She said this year there has been a sharp rise in the number of instrumentalists auditioning, also the addition of new categories of Electronic Poi and Spoken Word.
Assuming all goes as scheduled and everyone is given their chance on stage, the judges are expected to have their list of finalists ready by 1:00 pm Saturday for an official announcement by the organizers.
