URBANSTARSEARCH for the NEXT AUSTRALIAN SUPERSTAR
Brand new URBANSTAR Talent Quest shows are happening in various Australian cities in July. URBANSTAR, the premiere breeding ground for up-and-coming Australian music and dance talent, will make its way to Brisbane (July 5), Wollongong (July 18) and Sydney (July 25). The URBANSTAR Talent Quest are launching a series of talent competitions that seek the best, unsigned artists across the country. There are two main divisions: Kids/Teens and Adult. The talent quest has been created to give upcoming and aspiring performers a platform to showcase their hidden talents.
Before X-Factor, last year’s URBANSTAR Sydney show unearthed Jai Waetford, winner of the Teen division. After generating plenty of buzz, the teenage sensation advanced into X-Factor and placed third overall in the reality television show. Urbanstar Sydney Open champion Jacinta Gulisano also got into the Final Four of X-Factor with singing group Third Degree. Finalist and rapper Amethyst (Regal) or now better known as Iggy Azalea competed in Urbanstar back in 2007. Other former champions include William Singe from X-Factor's The Collective, Shavaun Marie (National Champion 2012) and Courtney Teixeira (National Champion 2013).
For the URBANSTAR NATIONAL WINNER, the grand prize include $1000 worth of merchandise, cash, music studio recording and an opportunity to perform on stage with a Grammy Award-winning American R&B group in December 2014.
