Ready to get Mentored?By Jude Toyat @judetbpseeds
THINK YOU HAVE WHAT it takes to become Malaysia’s next singing sensation? Transform your dream into reality with reality television programme, Mentor that is now entering its seventh year in its latest edition of Mentor Legend.
Following the success of Mentor 6 that received more than 3 million viewers, Mentor Legend is expected to be the most intense competition in the history of the show with the return of six renowned singers who will find and mentor their protégés.
The six legendary singers who will mentor the champions and first runner-ups from the shows’ previous editions include Zainal Abidin, Amy Search, Mas Idayu, Ajai, Dayang Nurfaizah, and Ella.
Auditions for their proteges will be held for three days at Merdeka Palace, Kuching from September 12 to 14 (Friday to Sunday).
For those living in and around Kuching, do not miss the auditions that will commence from 9am to 3pm. Those who wish to participate in the auditions are advised to come before 9am to avoid congestion and ensure smooth running of the programme.
Among the requirements for entering the audition are that entrants must be Malaysian, aged between 18 to 26 years old (before 1st January 2015), and fluent in Bahasa Melayu and English. Members of the public keen to audition must bring along two (2) passport sized photos and a compact disc (CD) of their ‘minus one’ which is their audition music without the vocals.
It is also advisable to be prepared mentally and physically before entering the audition hall as it will be judged by professional and experienced judges including Azmeer and Faizal Uzir (Lok U).
For those who miss their chances to audition in Kota Kinabalu and Kuching, the next audition will be held at Sri Pentas, Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya. These auditions will be judged by any of the six mentors.
