The TeenStar singing competition is the UK’s biggest search for unsigned teenage and pre-teen acts, with serious prizes and opportunities for those serious about developing their talent and music.
TeenStar is a nationwide singing competition which saw over 8,000 acts audition last year. The next TeenStar singing auditions start in January, and will search for the UK’s best singers, singer-songwriters, rappers and vocalists aged 19 or under.
TeenStar have music industry judges attend every stage of the competition from the singing auditions to the Grand Final, with judges from the three major record labels Universal, Warner and Sony attending last year. View our competition judges here.
TeenStar is open to all genres and acts can perform either covers or their own original songs. The competition offer competitors the opportunity to attend singing auditions for the chance to perform live in front of industry judges and large audiences, generating valuable media attention and exposure!
If you are good enough to make it through to the live shows you'll perform live to capacity audiences at some of the best venues in the country, with past Grand Finals being held at The NEC in Birmingham and within The O2 in London!
