It’s time for all budding young pop stars to step out of the shower and onto a stage; put down their hairbrush and replace it with a mic; stray away from performing in front of a mirror and get used to a live screaming audience—because The Next Star is back!
YTV’s top-rated series will premiere in July 2013 for its sixth season seeing favourites Keshia Chante, Tara Oram and Mark Spicoluk return to the judging table.
In order to prepare for the upcoming season, judges, the new host and the rest of The Next Star team gathered in Toronto for an exciting photo shoot.
Faze was on set to experience a behind the scenes look at the shoot. With a bright wardrobe full of the most stylish pieces, gorgeous colourful accessories and the coolest shoes, we knew it was going to be a fun shoot.
Keshia, Tara, Mark and exciting new host Carlos (who most will recognize from YTV’s The Zone) were naturals in front of the camera, and it was clear that everyone was enjoying the fun on set. The photo shoot was just the beginning for The Next Star team, who will be soon heading out on a six-city search across Canada searching for talented young singers.
Hopefuls under the age of 15 will be auditioning to earn a coveted spot on the television show, where finalists will complete various challenges that will help them prepare for stardom. From mastering their original sound to perfecting their style and stage presence, there are many lessons to be learnt and skills to be taught. The top six finalists will be getting their first taste of what its like to be star and one of them will come out on top as the newly crowned Next Star.
This season also introduces Next Star Nation, where the show and its fans take over social media pages for the ultimate interactive fan experience. Next Star Nation is the chance to find breaking news, watch exclusive behind-the-scenes videos and get sneak peeks of upcoming episodes.
