The Moment has Arrived: Who Will be the Next Star?
- Live Finale at Canada’s Wonderland on Sunday, September 28 at 7 p.m.
It’s the question fans have been asking for months: which of the six young finalists will become The Next Star? Corus Entertainment’s YTV, Tricon Films & Television and Universal Music Canada invite viewers to catch the season finale of this popular series live from Canada’s Wonderland on Sunday, September 28 at 7 p.m. on YTV.
Fans of The Next Star can visit www.YTV.com for information on how to score advance discounted park tickets and entry to the live show at Canada’s Wonderland. Along with headline performances by Universal Music acts such as Canadian band Faber Drive and series mentor Suzie McNeil, the one-hour finale will also feature the top six contestants singing their own single, written during the series.
Viewers at home can vote for their favourite performer via www.YTV.com and text message. The winner will record a single with Universal Music Canada to be released on YTV’s Big Fun Party Mix 10, plus a professional music video and personal guidance from music industry hit-makers. All six singers will have a song included on The Next Star CD, scheduled to be released in October.
For 11 episodes, every Friday at 6 p.m. on YTV, The Next Star has followed six young contestants as they have been counseled by professionals on how to tackle every aspect of the music industry. Host Adamo Ruggiero (Degrassi: The Next Generation) and judges Suzie McNeil, Christopher Ward and Steve Cranwell, along with other industry mentors, have guided the young talent throughout their journey.
To get geared up for the final vote, YTV is giving viewers two chances to catch up on previous episodes. On Saturday, September 27 beginning at 1 p.m. and Sunday, September 28 beginning at 12 p.m., fans can watch back-to-back episodes of the series.
