Are You The Next Big Star? Initial Telecast



Titled "Are You the Next Big Star?" the show aims to pool together amateur and professional singers who are all hoping to take a shot at stardom.

"This is actually a first in a singing search," an insider said, "allowing experienced and professional singers to join the search. Iyon nga lang, they have to prove that they have no recording contract and no main appearances as singers since 2008."

For the first time, too, not just one but two (one male and one female) hopefuls will be proclaimed winners."

Would you believe that 10,000 joined the screening conducted by GMA-7 at SM Baliwag, SM Batangas, SM Marikina and GMA? From among them, 150 contestants were asked to undergo the next round of auditions. They then faced 15 weeks of grueling tasks, workshops and weekly live performances that are designed to sharpen their musicality, pop star power, and over-all mass appeal; not to mention the capacity to withstand the demands of a career in the highly competitive world of music.

Now, according to our source, they are down to 16.

"We have a roster of judges na 'di lang impressive, mga well-respected pa in their respective fields," said Regine. "Consider the following: Danny Tan record producer/composer, song writer Danny Tan, musical director and arranger Mon Faustino, vocal coach and The Company founding member Annie Quintos, '90s pop icon Randy Santiago and concert queen Pops Fernandez."

The two grand champions will each be awarded with a GMA exclusive management contract, a GMA Records recording contract, P1 million in cash from SM supermalls and other prizes, along with a once-in-a-lifetime shot at superstardom.

REGINE Velasquez is co-host of an upcoming reality show on GMA-7 along with Keempee de Leon, who is actually a singer and recording star, like Regine.



The said show will start tonight, May 16, 2009 after Pinoy Records.
