TeenStar singing competition is one of the largest national singing competitions for teenage and pre-teen singers, rappers, duos and vocal groups. It's a national competition for singers and acts to perform live. Over 10,000 teenage singers are expected to register to audition this year, making it the biggest singing talent search specifically for pre-teens and teenagers. The competition's unique format allows the UK's breakthrough acts to perform in their own genre and style, and the overall aim is to find potential recording artists. TeenStar's main aim is to find young potential talent that can be developed into a unique recording artist. The competition is not only to find new talent, but also to give opportunities and exposure to all acts that enter.
As well as offering entrants the chance to perform live to capacity audiences at some of the best venues in the country, there is also up to £20,000 in prizes up for grabs along the way which includes; recording studio time, music development classes and the main prize; £5,000 cash to spend as you wish for the development of your act.
With its nationwide status, TeenStar gives young singers and acts all over the UK the opportunity to compete to be the UK's best teenage star of 2013!
MUSIC INDUSTRY JUDGES
The judges will be looking primarily at musical ability, performance capability, image, and star quality. The act's image must be one that ties in with their projected style in their music, and they must retain an air of professionalism on and off stage. The judges will be seeking an act that has the potential to be successfully developed into a major recording artist. Therefore motivational skills are essential. The competitors who can sell themselves to those around them will give themselves every opportunity of winning TeenStar. See a list of previous judges that Future Music has compiled in the past.
