FIERCE COMPETITION PROMISES GRAND FINALE FOR DIGICEL RISING STARS
Wednesday November 11 2015: PORT OF SPAIN, TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO – Reigning Chutney Soca Monarch King and Digicel endorsee Ravi B created quite a stir in last week’s episode of Digicel Rising Star. The entertainer appeared in the capacity of both guest performer as well as judge on the popular reality TV series.
In keeping with the celebrations of Divali, contestants were pushed out of their comfort zones as they were required to prepare and sing their selections in Hindi. The audience totally enjoyed the performances, cheering for their favourites and of course voting to get them to the next round of competition.
As the show draws nearer to its close, competition is definitely increasing with the judges’ feedback becoming even more detailed urging the contestants to improve on their weak areas.
Commenting on this week’s performances, Christopher Edmond, Senior Sponsorship Officer, of Digicel beamed “We’ve seen a fantastic level of competition this year and there is a fierce sense of camaraderie amongst all the contestants which is also extraordinary to experience.” He further stated that “It’s always interesting to share the highs and lows during the Digicel Rising Stars competition and we expect nothing short of a grand finale to our 10th year of Digicel Rising Stars.”
Digicel Rising Stars fans are reminded that there are only 3 weeks left in the competition with the Grand Finale happening the last weekend in this month.
