Talent Expression moves to semifinal
Thirty two contestants performed at the preliminary round of the 13th edition of the Talent Expression competition, organised by the Southern Marines Steelband Foundation. It was held on October 20, at the Southern Marines Pan Palais, Marabella.
Twenty-four contestants have qualified for the semifinal to be held on November 3, at the same venue, beginning at 7 pm. Twelve finalists will be chosen, then, to contest the final to be held on November 17.
The UBDC dancers came in first followed by Jerrelle Hurdle, a vocalist who shook the rafters and thrilled the audience. They were closely trailed by dancers Aaliyah Lewis and Damini Soogrim. But, every one of the 24 semifinalists is capable of running away with the first place, moreso when skilled artistes like Roxy Singh, Stephan Furlonge, Deryck Hinds, Tyeesha Alexander and Bernard Brereton are in the race.
The draw for positions for the semifinal took place on October 26, at the Southern Marines Pan Palais, a release from the organisers said.
Talent Expression is open to performance artistes and has more than $36,000 in prize money at stake with a first prize of $5,000.
