“MBC STAR AUDITION” Season 3 Auditions in LA
MBC has announced that auditions for Korea’s most celebrated singing competition, MBC Star Auditions will be holding auditions in Los Angeles, California. The singing show, which is in it’s third season is searching for hopeful contestants from all around the world to compete for a cash prize and a chance to debut a K-Pop singer in Korea.
Auditions in LA will be held on August 12th and successful contestants who pass the initial audition phase will be flown to Korea in September to compete against other finalists for the grand prize, and an opportunity to become an international singing sensation. Successful hopefuls will not only be given a chance to perform on Korea’s national television but will also be mentored by the country’s most famed and talented musicians such as Lena Park, Sun-Hee Lee (“Korea’s Sweetheart”), and K-pop composer Yoon Il Sang (one of Korea’s most famed producers) participated in the mentoring process last season.
The auditions are open to anyone, with no age, gender, or ethnicity requirements – the only prerequisite is that contestants should be able to sing at least one song in Korean. Fluency in Korean is not necessary, however. Online applications are available at MBC’s website.
The deadline for application is August 11, 2012 – however, walk-in applicants on the day of auditions are welcome as well. More information can be found here.
