Remember the YOUTUBE TO YOU “LIVE” – SING OFF competition? The much anticipated TOP TEN finalists of the singing competition have finally been revealed!
The submission of videos was opened to public on the 23 April and the program received overwhelming response with hundreds of videos submitted by aspiring singers. After the deadline on the 15 May, the best Top 50 videos were selected by the organisers of the program and put up for online voting on Facebook. Voting was closed on 23 May revealing the Top 10 finest and talented amateur performances. The Top 10 include solo, duo or band performing songs of their choice. Participants range from tertiary education students to working adults who have an innate passion for music.
These lucky 10 will now advance to the Top 10 Live Showcase – Part One will take place on 31st May, Thursday and Part Two will take place the following week, on 7th June, Thursday. They will be invited to perform two songs each live at Laundry Bar in the coming weeks. Their live performances will be judged by artistes from the local indie music scene like Liyana Fizi, An Honest Mistake, Pesawat and The Azenders. The Top 6 best performances will be chosen based on song choice, performance and stage presence. The six semi finalists will then proceed to the next level as Top 3 finalists are picked to compete in the grand finale.
