There is plenty of things to appeal to the most difficult child and adult out there at the CNE. While many go there for the fun, there are 15 young people from Brampton and Mississauga who are looking forward to the Canadian National Exhibition’s annual Rising Star Talent Competition.
The competition showcases and promotes some of Ontario’s most talented youth.
Around 386 video applications were submitted from across the province. However, only five gifted individuals from Brampton, and 11 from Mississauga are among the select 120 contestants to compete as top candidates who will perform at the CNE.
The contestants from Brampton are Gia Clark, Dorothy Simon, Devine Lightbody, Nivedita Motiram and Makayla Gardner. All will compete as vocalist category.
Contestants are judged on their ability, audience appeal, stage presence, and of course, the quality of their performance.
The assigned preliminaries will run Aug. 17-26 and successful candidates will then will advance to the youth semifinals from Aug. 29-31 or the junior semifinals from Aug. 27-28. The grand finale takes place on Sept. 1 for juniors and Sept. 2 for youth.
