The highest record in this season was 44.5 marks by Carrie Yeo in one of the Final's performance.

The lowest was 23 marks by Charlotte Loh Feng Yi, when she lost her confidence when she was ousted in the Quarter-Final and sang "terribly" (quoted from the judges) in the Revival Round.

On 18 January 2007, the 4 finalists competed. Lydia Tan Di Ya emerged as the female champion, with a higher overall score of public votes and judges score, accounting 62.1% as compared to Carrie Yeo's 37.9%. It was a tougher fight for the males, with Daren Tan Sze Wei, the male champion, accounting for 52.72% as compared to Nathaniel Tan's 47.28%.

Both the male and female champion competed in Singapore Indoor Stadium on 4 February 2007. Unlike the 1st season, a contract is only limited to the overall champion, while the rest of the contestants have to wait for recording companies to sign them up.

Daren started off the night with a 60-40 lead in CD single sales. Out of the 5 round of singing, Diya won 3 rounds while Daren won 2 rounds in the hearts of the judges.

Daren won the title of the 2nd season's Singapore Project Superstar with the margin of 59% to Diya's 41%, the closest margin in any star searching competitions held in Singapore at this moment. Previous competition had margins of 61 to 39, 62 to 38, 65 to 35, 64 to 36 and 70 to 30.
