GMA-7 has created a new talent search, “Are You The Next Big Star?” that will be hosted by Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez and will premiere on May 16. This one is in exchange of the Kapuso network’s last singing search franchise Pinoy Idol, which will eventually be going back to TV5.
AYTNBS? has a different format where there will be a male and female grand winner, both winning P1 Million and an exclusive recording and management contract with GMA7. It will be co-hosted by Kempee De Leon and its Judges will be lined up with Danny Tan, Mon Faustino, Randy Santiago, Anne Quintos of The Company and Pops Fernandez.
Regine has always been spearheading singing contests for GMA Kapuso Network as a host and wants to stay that way and doesn’t want the pressure of being the judge herself. Though, sometimes judges do consult for her opinion, too. Contests like this pretty much reminds her of where she actually came from and how she emerged to be the big star right now.
So, would you like to follow on her footstep and not too afraid to fill in a really big shoe? Are You The Next Big Star? 😉
