After the intense first round of Star Search semi-finals last week, the pressure was on for the final 12 hopefuls to pull out the stops at last night (Oct 13)’s semi-finals to snag the remaining six spots in the Grand Finals, which will be held on November 3.

Apart from the local industry experts, the foreign expert panel included veteran actors Man Shu Sum, Phoebe Huang and Bobby Au Yeung.

The judging criteria comprised four areas: dancing (10 per cent), acting (40 per cent), individual charisma (30 per cent), and improvisation skills (20 per cent). The first and last segments were performed during the two-hour live show, while the acting was seen through a pre-produced, three-part mini drama featuring 1997 Star Search Female Champion Florence Tan.

At the end of the night, the six finalists were revealed to be Tyler Ten, Teoh Zetong, Kiki Lim, Ye Jiayun, Sheryl Ang and Zhai Si Ming.

They will join Juin Teh, Vanessa Ho, Zane Lim, Chang Hio Cheng, Jernelle Oh, and Hermen Keh from last week’s semi-finals. The 12 of them will take the stage next month, where the Star Search 2019 champion will be crowned.
