KOTA KINABALU – Twelve top-notch contestants, ranging from singers, beat-boxers (solo and group), dancers (solo and group), female impersonators as well as a magician, have qualified for the ‘KK Got Talent’ grand-finale Tuesday (Nov 8) at the Cowboy Bar.
The sole magician among the 12 finalists, 15-year old Alief, who comes all the way from Kota Marudu, is a contender to be reckoned with.
His passion in magic began three years ago and the thre-hour drive from Kota Marudu to the capital city did not deter him from pursuing his dream to become a household name in the near future.
Also among the finalists are Nurqhalisya, a recent winner in the Bintang Remaja RTM and the top dancers, the multi-award winner Flexible Crew.
Beat-boxers from Kota Marudu, Daniel and Gryvon, solo dancer Nelson Thien from Keningau, solo dancer from Tenom Alvin, female impersonators Madonna and Mai, beat-boxer+rapper+dancer will also feature Tuesday night.
The Soul Revolution from Menggatal, puppet performer+beat-boxer+rapper, Halisus from Keningau, singer Andyrian from Tenom and model+beat-boxer+singer, Fareez from Keningau, complete the list.
“This is an awesome group of talent who have brightened up the entertainment scene in Sabah with their superb and unique skills,” said the chief organiser and Managing Director of Borneo Events Production (B.E.P)
“The judges are going to have a tough time in deciding who will ultimately bring home the RM1,000 cash prize, trophy, certificate and a contract to perform at the Cowboy Bar,” he added.
The 1st & 2nd runners-up will get RM500 & RM300 respectively, while the 3rd and 4th runners-up will get RM100 each. There will also a special prize of RM100 to the Most Popular Facebook winner.
