The TeenStar singing competition’s Grand Final took place within The O2 in London and gave acts, including singing contest TeenStar winner Luke Friend, the chance to play in front of a sold-out crowd and music industry judging panel.
Although singing contest TeenStar winner Luke Friend has the job of impressing the four X Factor judges Gary Barlow, Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh as well as the general public this weekend, he has already impressed a prestigious judging panel at the TeenStar Grand Final who crowned the star “TeenStar Champion 2013”. The TeenStar singing competition judging panel included former Radio 1 DJ and Choice FM presenter Ras Kwame who first discovered Emeli Sande, four time Ivor Novello award winner and one half of the garage duo Artful Dodger Mark Hill, Choice FM presenter E Plus, Capital FM producer and celebrity journo Jon Hornbuckle, Editor of Shout Magazine Ali Henderson, Head of BGM Michael King and Head of Future Music Chris Grayston who first discovered Birdy through the Open Mic UK music competition.
Chris Grayston remembers singing contest TeenStar winner Luke Friend from the TeenStar singing competition, saying “It’s great to watch Luke’s development over the years and now he’s found his own image, sound and confidence there’s nothing stopping him!”
