Teens battle it out for top prize

THE next wave of superstars will battle it out this Sunday for the chance to win a recording session.

The final of the Twin Towns Club Banora Talented Teen Competition will see musicians, dancers and singers perform in a show-stopping attempt to make their mark on the entertainment industry.

The inaugural event was organised by Red Hot Entertainment owner Karin Driessen with her daughter Cheyenne Driessen, and Lisa Allington.

Ms Driessen said the finalists had travelled from the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Byron Bay to compete in the event.

“They are all solo acts and we have guitarists, singers, a drummer, a tap dancer and a tap dancer who sings,” Ms Driessen said.

“So far the performers have been absolutely fantastic and we have been floored at the quality of the talent.

“We are looking at overall performance, for stage presence and how someone is dressed; we look at a person's image as well as their voice.”

The contestants have been broken into two categories with the first category for 13 to 15-year-olds and the second for 16 to 17-year-olds.

The final will take place at Club Banora on Sunday at 2pm (DST) and admission is free.
