Astro Star Quest 2010 Audition 新秀大赛选拔赛

Make Your Dreams Come True at Astro Star Quest 新秀大赛 2010

If you think you are as good as the Astro Star Quest contestants you watch on television each week, now is the chance for you to prove it. The much anticipated star-making programme, Astro Star Quest returns in its 14th year with a call for an audition at Federal Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on March 20 – 21, 2010 from 9am-3pm.

Open to all Malaysian aged between 18 to 26 years old and able to converse in Mandarin and Cantonese, this year’s one and only audition will be judged by renowned music industry personalities namely 李伟菘 Lee Wei Shiong from Singapore and Malaysian music producer Alex San. Shortlisted contestants from the first round audition will compete in the second round audition, where fifteen of them will be picked for the preliminary rounds.

Since its debut in 1997, Astro Star Quest (formerly known as Astro Talent Quest), has become a prominent local Chinese singing reality show that fulfilled dreams of many young Malaysians to become successful singers, such as 张栋樑 Nicholas Teo, Gary Cao, Eric Lim, 陈势安 Andrew Tan, Amy Wong, Gan Wan Chean and Choo Hou Ren.

“It has always been our focus at Astro to produce quality local programmes that can enrich the lives of our viewers as well as contribute to the development of the local entertainment industry. We would have missed out great Malaysian talents such as Nicholas Teo and Gary Cao had they not participated in the programme and we are proud to say that Astro Star Quest has provided these talents a springboard to launch their singing and acting career beyond Malaysia,” said Choo Chi Han, Head of Chinese Language Business.

Astro Star Quest has also unleashed talents with different strengths – Danny Koo, Anthony Chang and Jym Chong earned themselves chances to host TV programmes while Lan Kah Fai and Ryan Thoo were signed as youth ambassadors for commercials. Most recently, Astro Star Quest 2009 second-runner up, Chen Keat Yoke starred in the highly acclaimed locally produced Chinese movie Woohoo!, making her a household name instantly.

“Our programming strength lies in the fact that we don’t just discover talents but also continuously develop and nurture the talents by providing different opportunities and platforms for them to hone their skills and talents. This is in line with our Astro Ben Di Quan’s (Local Belt) commitment to develop the Malaysian entertainment industry with a sustainable pool of multi-talented Malaysians,” added Choo.

Apart from a ticket to fame, Astro Star Quest 2010 offers fabulous prizes to the finalists. The top 3 winners will represent Malaysia at the annual International Chinese New Talent Singing Competition, set in Hong Kong , to compete against other talented performers from around the world in pursue of international fame.

Astro Star Quest 2010 is produced by Astro Ben Di Quan (Local Belt) and supported by MY FM. The show is scheduled to air over Astro Wah Lai Toi (Channel 311) from May 9 onwards.

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
