DundaStar Talent Search held its second last audition with over 28 entries at the Rainbow Hotel in Kicukiro on Saturday. This was the third round of the contest that has been moving around the city looking for young people talented in music and dance.
This time there were 19 singing contestants and 10 for dancing. Compared to previous auditions, this round was more entertaining and saw much better talent that made the competition stiff.
The first few ladies on the stage tried their best to sing but failed to impress the judges who felt disappointed with the poor. But as the auditions continued, it got better. Pacific, a humble young man, was the first to impress the judges with his beautiful voice when he sang a popular gospel song from the Australian group Hillsongs.
There were quite a number of singers who impressed the judges but the one who stood out and almost brought the judges to tears was a 21-year-old Teta, who with a thrilling voice for her age did justice to a song by award-winning artist Adele. She left the judges speechless.
In the dance department too, there were impressive performances. The Snipers, for instance, displayed a lot of originality and creativity, with one of the dancers even setting his head gear on fire. It led the judges to say that while they loved the group, it would be nice not to use fire anymore.
"If you must use fire again, then let all of you have it - all our attention went to the guy who had the fire on his head," said judge Ginty, a presenter with Kfm.
Among the groups that stood out Siblings, consisting of three brothers who did an amazing acapella that kept the judges asking for more. Other impressive acts were Sick Cit, Street Campers, Spartans and Machina.
The next and last DundaStar Talent Search session will take place on November 29 in Nyamirambo.
