Oman competition: Y’s Got Talent

Y’s Got Talent aims to find the most talented university students in Muscat and reward them with exciting prizes.



With just seven more auditions to be held and 14 spots to fill for the Grand Finale of Y’s Got Talent, our search for the overall Mr and Ms Cool of Muscat’s colleges is certainly heating up!

With 10 finalists already making it through to the Grand Finale with impressive performances, we’ve nearly reached the halfway mark of the competition.

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.

“We’ are nearly at the halfway point,” says Felicity Glover, the managing editor of Y Magazine. “And this means that there are only 14 more spots available. We are expecting the quality to be even more intense from now on.”

In the audition phase, which will continue in May, 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!
