Tomorrow ten hopefuls seeking fame, fortune and unadulterated adoration will come together as The Edge Boy Band.
New Zealand will get to see who has the instant Boy Band x-factor when they each sing live on stage at Rainbows End from 3pm, tomorrow.
Will it be Haydn Linsley (19) from Palmerston North who comes from a talented musical family, whose Grandfather, Tony Hatch, was the composer of ‘Neighbours’ theme tune; or Andrew Papas (18) of Auckland, who has already performed in front of 250,000 people at Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park.
"We’ve found ten guys who can sing and have the look, but next week we’ll find the ones who can really sing, dance and handle the attention of thousands of screaming fans", said Leon Wratt, The Edge Programme Director.
The final ten meet in Auckland tomorrow at The Surrey Hotel, Grey Lynn for ‘Boy Band Camp’. It will be an intense week of training that includes choreography lessons with J. Williams, singing lessons with Vince Harder, styling and grooming, and media training to prepare the Top Ten for the head-to-head competition week.
At the end of the week up to five will be chosen to go on to create their own band name and spend a week recording with one of the country’s most esteemed music producers, NOX (Illegal Musik), creating their debut single written by Jersey Boys star Vince Harder to be released on Friday, September 7.
The Top Ten winning auditions are posted online at www.boyband.co.nz where the public can vote for their favourites until midnight Thursday, August 23.
See who has that x-factor tomorrow when the Top Ten perform live on stage at Rainbows End from 3pm, tomorrow or on Sunday when entertain customers from midday at KFC Quay St, Auckland Central.
