ABOUT 100 people turned up to support and witness the KAILA! Star Search finalists' very competitive battle last night.

The 10 contestants wowed the audience after they showcased their talents through singing and dancing as they took to the stage for the last time.

KAILA! Star Search competition co-ordinator Isireli Mainavukea said he was overwhelmed with the contestants' performances last night.

He said most of the contestants were amateurs, adding they were not trained singers as some had thought.

"After watching tonight's show I'm sure most of these people would have been thrilled and amazed by the kids' performance all I can say is, I'm so proud of them and at the end of the show they are all winners."

This year's KAILA! Star Search winner, Jed Taylor, said his mother was the reason behind his success for having faith in the 19-year-old lad.

"I want to thank everyone who has been so supportive, my mentor, friends and family and most importantly the Almighty God"
