Y’s Got Talent

The first auditions were held this week as Y continues its hunt for the King and Queen of Coll of Muscat’s college campuses. Impress our judges and your could win a share of RO 4,500 in prizes. 



Congratulations to Danish Shuja and Noreen Hassan, who were this week crowned Mr and Ms Talented of Middle East College!

Performing in front of a packed audience, Danish impressed our judges with his contemporary dance routine, while Noreen brought the house down with her powerful rendition of Sia’s Titanium.

Meanwhile, the entries are pouring in for our thrilling Y’s Got Talent competition – and with RO4,500 in prizes on the line, it’s no wonder!

So far, we’ve received a variety of entries from the likes of singers, dancers, musicians and poets – and now that the auditions have begun, everybody is practicing on their routines to impress our judges!

Presented by Nestle, powered by Renault, and in association with VLCC, The Sultan Centre and Pizza Muscat, Y’s Got Talent aims to find the most talented university students in Muscat and reward them with exciting prizes.

“Our first audition for Y’s Got Talent was held at Middle East College this week,” says Felicity Glover, the managing editor of Y Magazine. “And we congratulate our first winners, Danish and Noreen, who will be moving on to the Grand Finale to represent their college.”

In the audition phase, which will be held throughout this month, 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 Grand 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!
