'FAME' Search 4 A Star 2006, Heat 1...
WELL yes the first talent
competition of the year has started up. This years
@Fame' contest sees 16 to 30 year olds battling it out live on stage
to show off their solo vocal talents. At stake is a
first prize of £750 plus a recording session at Parr Street Studios
in Liverpool and a chance to open a big name act at the Southport
Theatre and Floral Hall.
This year the first
heat held on the 26 January was very good, despite a few no shows
due to illness. The standard just gets better and better.
I would not have liked to been a judge. All the acts put on a
fantastic show. Only a few marks separated the winners from
the rest and they will go through to the Simi Finals in March.
Taking to the stage this time where 12
contestants. Starting the night off was Alex Owen who sang
'A New Life' then Sam Hopper who sang 'Angels' followed
by Hayley Richardson who preformed 'Ain't No Mountains High
Enough' swiftly followed by Michael Haywood with 'Mack
The Knife'. Then came Joanne Demott singing 'I Dreamed A
Dream' followed by Louise Adcock with 'Get Here'. Megan
Adcock singing 'Get Happy' the followed, after her was Kary
Saxon who sang ABBA's 'Chiquititta'. But the night was not
over as Jodie Hamblet with 'Underneath your clothes' took to
the stage followed by Michael Wright with 'Don't Let The Sun Go
Down' and then Laura Cummings and 'Lady is a Tramp'.
Finishing the Night was Kate McDonald and 'Run to you'.
Winners of the heat where:- Alex
Owen; sisters Louise and Megan Adcock; Katy Saxon; Jodie Hamblet;
Laura Cummings; Kate McDonald and Micheal Haywood.
