Tal­ent alert as search for Cossie Idol be­gins

South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The sec­ond round of Toko­roa Cos­mopoli­tan Club’s Cossie Idol will be held this week­end.

This Satur­day at 8pm, more amaz­ing lo­cal singers and artists are ex­pected to take to the stage to try to em­u­late the same suc­cess last year’s win­ner Cindy Herekuia had when she claimed the crown af­ter per­form­ing Proud Mary.

Club sec­re­tary and man­ager Robyn Nor­man said that if last year’s com­pe­ti­tion was any­thing to go by, this year’s com­pe­ti­tion would be in­cred­i­ble.

‘‘It was mas­sive. The tal­ent in our town is amaz­ing. I’m pleased I wasn’t a judge that’s for sure. Some of the en­trants gave us goose­bumps and some made us dance,’’ she said last week.

En­tries are open and forms can be col­lected from the club’s bar.

‘‘Dif­fer­ent as­pects come into judg­ing. It’s not just the voice but in­ter­ac­tion with the crowd, stage pres­ence and more. Hon­estly, I know that there is more tal­ent out there and why not show­case it and with first prize at $1000, sec­ond prize at $500 and third prize at $300, it’s def­i­nitely worth a shot.’’

Un­der-18s can en­ter but must have their par­ents ac­com­pany them and sign the en­try form con­di­tions.
