“Project SuperStar” singing competition returns after 8-year hiatus

Channel U's "Project SuperStar" is back after an eight-year hiatus to find Singapore's next singing sensation.

SINGAPORE: The “Project SuperStar” televised singing competition is back after an eight-year hiatus.

Unlike previous seasons of “Project SuperStar”, there will be a more extensive recruitment exercise this season which will see the production team hold walk-in auditions and actively scout for talent.

There will also be no age limit, and singing groups will be allowed to participate for the first time.

Music industry veterans Roy Li, Dawn Yip and Eric Ng will preside over the competition.

The judges’ scores and viewers' votes will decide which of the competition's 12 finalists will emerge the winner.

“Project SuperStar” has produced a number of stars in the past, including singers Kelvin Tan, Derrick Hoh, Kelly Poon, pop duo The Freshman and singer-turned-actor Daren Tan.

A walk-in audition for the competition will be held at the Caldecott Broadcast Centre on June 7. Further details can be found at the "Project SuperStar 2014" official site.

Hosted by Dasmond Koh, Jeremy Chan and Shane Pow, “Project SuperStar 2014” will air from August 18, every Monday, 8pm on Channel U.
