After a five-year hiatus, Mediacorp’s talent discovery programme Star Search returns this year. The search begins with three rounds of open auditions to be held on Jul 6 and 7 at Funan, and Jul 13 at Orchard Central.

Since its inception in 1988, Star Search has been instrumental in uncovering and nurturing some of Singapore’s most beloved celebrities, including Zoe Tay, Chen Hanwei, Chew Chor Meng, Christopher Lee, Qi Yuwu, Felicia Chin, Desmond Tan and more. The last winner, back in 2019, was Zhang Zetong, who eventually went on to win Best Supporting Actor at this year’s Star Awards.

In proving that they have what it takes to become the next big sensation, hopefuls aged between 17 and 30 years old must first shine at the open auditions through a series of challenges. Specifically, they will first be tested on their ability to express different emotions; followed by an opportunity to flaunt their charisma through physical strength and endurance, as well as their wits and knowledge.
