Battle for wild card entry at Star Search

Sunday, June 29, 2014

ANOTHER 15 participants took to the stage last night to compete in Heat Two of the Kaila! Star Search at Suva's Civic Centre.

Hibiscus Events Group public relations manager Lice Movono-Rova said 10 of the 15 participants would join the 10 participants that have already qualified for the quarterfinals from Heat One last weekend.

Ms Movono-Rova said the competition was not short of talents as participants sang and showcased their dance moves on stage. "The trend has been that people are coming to us fresh in that they haven't taken part in a talent show before but in terms of their voice, they are a lot more developed," she said.

"Judges have conveyed after Heat One that their job is hard. However, we are doing something new this year and that is the battle for the wild card entry."

Participants who do not make it through to the quarters following Heat One and Heat Two will have another opportunity through the wild card entry.
