THE University of the South Pacific Got Talent Show was a great success with the 12 finalists rocked on stage with breathtaking performances at the Suva Civic Centre on Thursday.
The aim of the talent show was getting young people to showcase their talent and express themselves through their individual talents rather than focusing heavily on academic development.
USP Students Association Social chairperson Nicholas Manuel said the talent show was put together by his committee in order to encourage and promote talents of students in USP.
Mr Manuel said the third USP Got Talent Show was to benefit the students by helping them gain more confidence and to get their talents recognised.
He said winner of the USP Got Talent Show was Peter Anderson Maeni who sang a Christian song by the band Mercy Me.
"The turnout was good, I was really pleased to see the amount of people who came down to the Civic Centre to show their support," Mr Manuel said.
"The show is staged twice a year, one for each semester.
"The feedback for the show has been positive those who attended thoroughly enjoyed themselves and also the talents that were displayed."
He said they try their utmost best each semester to provide an entertaining and enjoyable event for people who are interested in watching the show.
"I am indeed grateful to all those who helped me organise such a great event," he said.
"There will be a fourth show that will be staged next Semester and we aim to keep the show going as we have noticed the amazing response from the public," he said.
Jope Delai a former student of USP said he was delighted to watch such amazing talent from current USP students.
