The singing competition TeenStar is a first-of-its-kind, national singing competition specifically for teen and pre-teen singers, duos, vocal groups, rappers and solo artists in the UK. The singing competition attracts over 8,000 acts each year as it travels across the country in the search for the UK's best teen and pre-teen singers, singer/songwriters, rappers and vocalists. Acts can perform either covers or original material and it's open to all genres, so whether you’re into pop, RnB, grime, acoustic or classical, TeenStar wants YOU!
TeenStar offers entrants not only the chance to win some serious prizes, but the opportunity to perform live to capacity audiences at some of the best venues in the country – including within The O2 in London! Huge crowds, record industry A & R and celebrity judges will be there to cast their eye over the talent along the way.
Brought to you by Future Music, who already produce the successful Open Mic UK competition bringing us such acts as Jahmene Douglas, Birdy, Hatty Keane, Lucy Spraggan and Luke Friend, TeenStar is an exciting competition for teens and pre-teens to get involved in.
With its nationwide status, the TeenStar singing competition gives acts all over the nation the opportunity to compete to be the UK’s best teenage singing star. Are you good enough to audition?
There will be thousands of pounds worth of prizes up for grabs including recording studio time and music development classes, with the overall winner receiving £5,000 to spend on the development of their music! Enter the only singing competition exclusively for young singers in the UK.
The singing competition is for teenagers but also looks to unearth the stars of tomorrow with its pre-teens category, meaning that all acts will be competing against acts of the same age! The singing competition’s main aim is to discover an act that has the ability to become a professional and unique recording artist. So if you're a pre-teen or a teenager and think you have the talent complete the application form on the website to enter the TeenStar singing competition.
The TeenStar competition is split into the following three age categories:
The judges will be looking at vocal/musical talent, stage performance, star quality and individuality. Throughout the journey, acts will have to prove their professionalism and determination and make every performance their own. The judges will be seeking an act that has the potential to be successfully launched in the UK as a major recording artist. Therefore motivational skills are essential. The competitors who can promote themselves and win over those around them will give themselves every opportunity to win. Click here to see who has been on the judging panel in the past.
