NA Domo Singing Competition judge Tim Ulacake is excited to hear what the 21 competitors will perform for the public in the first elimination round tonight at Suva's Downtown Boulevard.
Mr Ulacake, one of the competition's three judges, says the best is yet to come from the groups and soloists who've made it through.
"We had original compositions from the performers in the first ever public appearance last Tuesday that has got to say a lot in terms of the standard and calibre of this competition," he said.
"These performers have such raw talent and the fact that some of them came confidently into the non-elimination round singing their own compositions has to get you excited for what more is going to come in this competition."
The elimination round is expected to begin at 6:30pm this evening. Unlike last week's non-elimination round where performers were allowed to choose their own songs, tonight will see each choose a song from a list picked by the three judges. Only 18 performers will make it through to the next round.
"There is something for each of them in the list, so they won't have trouble looking for something to perform to," Mr Ulacake said.
"However, we would love to see them choose the right song, something that will complement their vocal range and something totally new to what they usually sing.
"The biggest area that we will be looking into is creativity — how each singer or group makes their particular choice of song their own.
Mr Ulacake urged families and friends to support the performers by attending the elimination round.
"This really is a good talent show, different from all the others I have been involved in and it gives the performers the appreciation they deserve," he said.
