Derby singing competition for teenagers and pre-teens TeenStar took place at The Riverside Centre, Derby this weekend, and saw the best teen and pre-teen singers, songwriters and solo artists in the region take to the stage in their bids to use the Derby singing competition for teenagers and pre-teens to impress a music industry judging panel and capacity crowd for the TeenStar Regional Finals!
The TeenStar Regional Final showcases were fierce, and the standard was extremely high. Well done to all performers for putting on a great show!
With so much talent at the Derby singing competition for teenagers and pre-teens it was difficult to decide who made it through, but well done to the acts that progressed to the Area Final on Sunday 26th May 2013 at Huddersfield Town Hall, Ramsden Street, Huddersfield, HD1 2TA. Music industry feedback from the judging panel will be posted on the website for acts to view shortly.
There is one more place up for grabs for the Area Final which the remaining acts from the Derby singing competition for teenagers and pre-teens can now compete for. The wildcard vote is now open, so get voting for your favorite to help them win that final spot!
The guest act at the Derby singing competition for teenagers and pre-teens was singer-songwriter Leon Bratt, who wowed the crowds with his original songs!
As well as places in the Area Final, there were Exposure Awards for the acts with the largest quantity of publicity, with the prize being recording studio time with TeenStar regional studio partner Psyrex Studios and runner-up prizes of singing lessons with TeenStar Regional singing partner Derby School of Music.

YouTube Exposure Award – There will be an award for the act who achieves the most views on YouTube for their filmed footage from either the Regional or Area Final Showcase. The winner will be announced at the Grand Final within The O2. The winner will receive an exclusive expenses paid trip to Italy to perform in TourFest in Rome. The award will be calculated on all views over 30 seconds based on the highest average daily views - this is to account for varying times acts will get to promote their video.
Battle To Rome - To aid acts in the quest for the most views on your videos, we’ll be holding a competition called Battle to Rome, where acts have the chance to go head-to-head with each other with their YouTube footage on the TeenStar facebook page. The most popular videos will progress through to the next round each time until we have a winner!
The winning acts from the Derby Regional Final showcase will now be performing at the Area Final on Sunday 26th May 2013 at Huddersfield Town Hall, Ramsden Street, Huddersfield, HD1 2TA. Come along and see the best unsigned talent from across the UK!
All acts at the Area Finals will be competing to make it to the Grand Final at The O2 on July 13th 2013.
