Arua was the first stop for the Coca-Cola rated next sing it, auditions. Next was Lira, then Fortportal, Mbarara and Kampala. So on 15th and 16th May, Mbale will be the next stop, for the competition now in its third chapter.
Judges Esther Nabaasa, Siima Sabiti and Ken Daniels Kayongo, will be at it again, you know, sieving through a series of auditions to get those worthy to compete at the National level.
But first, they not only have to impress the judges in the first round of auditions but the second round too. Matter of fact, it will take an approval from at least two of the three judges, for anyone to get the symbolic, 'we want you' card. Automatically, those that make it to the national level will be in the running for shs50million, a one year recording deal with Swangz Avenue and an ipad.
Based on the previous auditions, the judges have advised that those auditioning should stay away from original compositions, as those have been disappointing. Another tip though; when auditioning, they judges also advise that one should try as much as possible to perform.
Coca-Cola rated next sing it, is a partnership between vision group's Urban TV and Coca-Cola. Episodes of the show are now showing on both Urban and Bukedde TV at 7pm.
