Pop star hunt continues

THE elimination round of the search for the TFC Pop Star in the Middle East continues in Bahrain this Friday.

Twelve Filipino singers - Levie Nacional, Ariel Forbes, Hazel Lopez, Marestela Watson, Marietta Miranda, Miguelito Gamba, Mervin Flores, Jonathan Zumarraga, Laila, Felipe, Siegfred Plaza, Oscar Callope Jr and Venelyn Billiones - will take turns singing in front of judges at the Sampaguita Club and Restaurant at the Moon Plaza Hotel, Umm Al Hassam.

Doors open at 7pm and the show begins at 8.30pm. Tickets are BD1 per person.

The singers are being judged on their individual voice placement and style, intonation, timing, song-image compatibility, interview and interaction and potential in interpreting their prepared fast songs and voice quality and artistic rendition, plus stage projection.

The round continues on March 31 and April 7, when the judges will finally decide which eight will proceed to the Bahrain National Finals on May 8 at Al Ahli Stadium, Zinj.

The finals will also feature Jerome Salas and Tata Villaruel - winners of Star In A Million, a popular TV contest in the Philippines similar to the UK's Pop Idol.

The TFC Pop Star search is a regional project of the ABS CBN Middle East supported by Western Union International, MORE Etisalcom, Jealous Jeans and Identity.
