The Next Superstar transformed by Facebook

The Bliss Centre was teeming with talent on Tuesday night as this station’s latest entertainment show entered its second week of competition. Contestants in Group B performed in each category of dance, vocal, instrumental, and drama. They impressed the live audience when they brought their A game to the stage.  Those who did not make it to the sold out show, shared their thoughts via online social media.  So aside from the critique of the judges, viewers at home were making their own assessment. Freelance Reporter Duane Moody looks at how Facebook is transforming the Next Superstar.

“Tickets were sold out Tuesday at the Bliss as Episode two of Be the Next Superstar.  Thousands more were tuned in to catch the newest and hottest local entertainment show produced by Channel Five! Last week, we took a look at Group A’s performances. So here’s what happened last night when Group B took to the stage.”

“The show debuted last Tuesday to great reviews. And so we took to the streets to get some comments from our viewers.”

“Well you know, a lot of people say they missed Duets, but what I like about Be the Next Superstar; it is refreshing. It is so amazing because any number of people can participate and that’s a good thing because there are a lot of talented people in different categories of age, ethnicity and so much more. So I love it.”


Rundeen Smith, Fan, Be the Next Superstar

“So far, I like it. What I like about it is the dancing; everything cool and straight. Mi daughter love it too.”

“Tell me ma’am, do you guys always sit down as a family and watch the show?”


Juanita Williams, Fan, Be the Next Superstar

“Yes, we like to watch the show as a family. It is really interesting to see how much talent Belize has.”


Horace Williams, Fan, Be the Next Superstar

“We’re from Libertad.”


Duane Moody

“Is it like they say; that it is better to see it from inside the Bliss—live—as opposed to on TV?”


Horace Williams

“I think it is better live.”


It’s entertainment for the entire family and the Facebook feature is a hit says producer, Sharmane Garcia.

“I was expecting the show to be a hit on Facebook simply because the show caters to a younger audience and the younger audience has a great appreciate for Facebook. So I must say a big thank you to all the fans of be the next superstar so far because of today we have one thousand two hundred and twenty-two likes. So that’s awesome.”


Melissa Coleman

“It is awesome; now that is a great idea because it is good to know what the audience at home is thinking; what is their reception to what is going on onstage. So that is definitely a very cool idea and I think the host and everybody should keep it up.”


Duane Moody

“We tried to make it much more interactive and we add facebook that people can go on and everything. Do you think that that was a good move for us to go?”


Juanita Williams

“Oh yes because I believe that at the end it is the people who vote; but at the end, that way they have their voice and opinion to give.”


But hold on to your seats because now that both groups have performed; another new feature will be introduced—two sets of performers from both groups will be sent home starting next week Tuesday. It’s the knock out round.


Sharmane Garcia

“We like the whole element of surprise and that anticipation, we are trying to build it up for the viewers to want to know who’s gonna be the bottom three. These three performers have one minute to fight for their life; to fight to stay in the competition. You have to push out your best performance in one minute and at the end of that, the judges will decide who will stay and which two will leave. So this is where the show changes as to other shows. Normally instead of having one being eliminated each week; we are going to have two eliminated each week.”


So for now, to keep your favorite performer of Group B from being in the bottom three, send your texts votes to Star 7-8-2-7 using Smart Phones only. Who will be Belize’s and Channel Five’s Next Superstar! Stay Tuned.
