The UAE’s most talented youngsters will soon be battling it out to be crowned winner of School’s Got Talent 2019.
Back for its third season the Sun & Sand Sports competition pits the UAE’s hottest young talent against each other in a bid to win be crowned champion, and take home a whopping AED 20,000 AED grand prize.
Auditions for the finals were held earlier this month as the judges had the unenviable task of whittling it down to just seven finalists, known as MVPs. Despite there being room for only one winner, the seven finalists will take home a AED 2,000 Sun & Sand Sports voucher.
The competition looks to recognise the region’s up-and-coming sports stars aged between 7 – 12 years old. Last year’s competition was won by gymnast Naya Al Ghazzi after wowing the judges with her flawless performance. Sports on show in this year’s final include swimming (Neal Bisht), running (Cassius Leota), dance (Tanish Nagvekar), basketball (Nathan Philip), football (Hassan Saleh), martial arts (Bima Johnston) and gymnastics (Haifa Niegas).
In the semi-final judging stages, contenders were tested on various elements including speed, endurance and stamina. Dance, martial arts and gymnastic competitors didn’t have long to impress with their routine, while swimming involved performing other tasks such as retrieving objects from under water. The football and basketball hopefuls had to tackle a one-on-one match along with showcasing their skills in various challenges.
The finals will be held at the Dubai American Academy, Al Barsha on Friday 27th – with registrations open from 1:30pm – where the judges will be watching the live performances. The top talents from each sport disciplines will then be judged on entertainment value, or other talents and their presentation skills. In the opening round the finalists have the chance to showcase their tricks and skills, and in round two they will be judged on their presentation performance as they are put to the test with a question and answer session.
Virgin Radio’s very own Kris Fade will be hosting the event with plenty of fun and games for all the family. Entertainment will include snooker football, football darts, basketball shots, prizes giveaways and much more.
