  Pinoy Pop Star 2009 winners (l-r) Ronaldo Trinidad (Crowd pleaser) Elsaida Alerta (Champion) & Jesse James Baris (Runner Up). Who will be the champion in 2010 and take home $2000 in prize money? Final round of auditions will be held on Tuesday January, 19 at the Agassiz Room, McPhillips Station Casino.

The 2010 Pinoy Pop Star singing competition hit the ground running with two full days of live auditions hosted by the McPhillips Station Casino on Tuesday, January 5 and Tuesday, January 12.

A joint project of the Pilipino Express News Magazine and the Manitoba Lotteries Corporation, this year’s Pinoy Pop Star contest has already attracted a large number of fresh new talents in the first two rounds of live auditions with another round to be held on Tuesday, January 19.

The singers performed behind closed doors before a panel of judges who reported that they were impressed not only by the wealth of talent in Winnipeg’s Filipino community but also by the number of good singers whom they had never seen before. So far, almost all the contestants are new to Pinoy Pop Star while many have never entered any singing competitions before. With one more round of live auditions before the semi-finals nights in February, the judges are looking forward to seeing even more great singing talents joining the competition.

The live auditions this month are the first stage of Pinoy Pop Star 2010 from which a group of singers will be chosen to proceed to the second stage – a live performance before an audience at the Jaguars Dance Club in the Club Regent Casino on one of two semi-finals night on Tuesday February 23 and Wednesday, February 24.

The names and the number of contestants who will compete in the semi-finals will be published in the next issue of the Pilipino Express after the third and final round of live auditions, which will be held in the Agassiz Room of the McPhillips Station Casino on Tuesday, January 19, 2010 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Twelve singers will be chosen from the two semi-finals nights performances to compete in the 2010 Pinoy Pop Star Grand Finals on the Main Stage of the McPhillips Station Casino on March 23.
