Are you hiding a secret singing talent from family, friends and the great New Zealand public? Isn’t it time to step into the spotlight and shine? TV ONE’s Good Morning is on a mission to find New Zealand’s brightest undiscovered talent.
If you can sing like an angel, flow like an MC, croon like Frank Sinatra or belt out an aria, you could be the show’s next Find A Star Champion!
Viewers who enter Good Morning’s ‘Find A Star’ talent competition can be in to win fantastic prizes including a trip to Sydney to meet top industry contacts to kick start their careers! Plus, they’ll also record their first single with help from Mike McCarthy at Manuka Studios, and they’ll get together with Gray Bartlett for three career design sessions.
Send Good Morning a DVD of no more than 90 seconds, showcasing your talent, along with the online entry form at tvnz.co.nz/goodmorning by noon, on Tuesday, 9 August.
The top 30 entries will be shortlisted and played on the show. Good Morning viewers will text-vote for their top 15 who will be flown to appear LIVE on one of three semi-finals: Monday 22 August, Tuesday 23 August and Wednesday 24 August.
Good Morning’s celebrity panel will judge the semi-finalists’ performances and the public will again text vote for their daily favourites to determine the top five.
The finalists will be in the spotlight on Friday 26 August as they vie for the 2011 “Find A Star” title, with guest industry judges including Robert Rigby, manager of Ambition Entertainment in Sydney and former executive at Warner Music Australia.
Producer Sally-Anne Kerr says: “Find A Star is a spectacular competition with stunning talent, so come on, what have you got to lose?”
