Calling all college students: have you got what it takes to enter Y’s Got Talent and claim your share of RO4,500 worth of prizes?
Y’s Got Talent Season 2 is back, bigger and better than before – and with a new name to boot. That’s right, Y’s Coolest Fresher has been renamed and also expanded to include first, second and third-year college students.
And no matter what your talent is, we want to hear from you. Whether you are a singer, a dancer, a musician, a poet, a juggler or even a freestyle footballer, you could find yourself appearing in our college campus auditions and heading to the Grand Finale in April.
Presented by Nestle, powered by Renault and VLCC, and in association with The Sultan Centre and Pizza Muscat, Y’s Got Talent aims to find the most talented university students the city has to offer and reward them with exciting prizes.
“This is a great opportunity for college students to showcase their unique talents on stage,” says Felicity Glover, Y’s managing editor.
“This year’s event is promising to be even better than last year’s, more so as we are inviting first, second and third-year students to enter via their participating colleges. We are also expecting many more entries and some incredible talents.”
In the audition phase, which will be held during March, our talent-hunting MC and panel of judges will scour each of the participating colleges to assess applicants, based on their two minutes in the spotlight. Once the votes are in, one boy and one girl from each college will go forward to the Grand Finale and compete against winners from the other colleges taking part.
Whoever is named Mr Talented and Ms Talented from each college audition will receive each RO150 worth of vouchers for their efforts, as well as the chance to win even more in the finale.
The winners of each college audition will then face off against each other for the glory of being crowned overall Mr and Ms Talented, as well as the opportunity to lay their hands on a cash prize of RO250 each plus RO200 worth of vouchers!
Registration for Y’s Got Talent opens later this month – and Y Magazine will be keeping you up to date with the participating colleges as well as when you can start registering via our website or on campus. But in the meantime, you’ll need to start practising your routines – good luck! For more information, call 9715 8488/8499.
