Campus SuperStar

Campus SuperStar is a spin-off of Project SuperStar, a popular singing talent-search competition in Singapore. The contestants comprise students from secondary schools, junior colleges and Institutes of Technical Education (ITEs). This differs from Project Superstar, where contestants must be over 18 to participate.

To date, there have been 2 seasons of Campus SuperStar. Each season featured 20 contestants who would compete in succeeding episodes and eliminated until the final four to compete in the Grand Final, where only 1 would be crowned Campus SuperStar. Each episode had two segments. The first segment was the performance segment where contestants performed in the Mediacorp studio and were judged. This would be broadcast live from 8pm to 9pm on Channel U every Monday. Public voting through telepoll would start from time of broadcast, and would extend till 10pm. The second segment, the result show, would be pre-recorded slightly after 10pm, where scores from the judges and from the voting by members of the public through SMS and telepoll would combine to determine the contestant(s) eliminated that night. The result show would then be broadcast on the same channel at 11.30pm.

The contestants are given a score from each judge based on their singing techniques, body language, and presentation. The scores were between 1 and 10, with 5 considered a passing score. In Season 1, judges' scores constituted 30% of the overall score, while the other 70% came from the public's SMS and call-in votes. This percentage allocation was reversed for Season 2, but was reverted back to the original ratios starting from the semi-final rounds.

Early Auditions

There would be 3 rounds of audition. The 1st audition is a public one where a panel of judges would shortlist those who registered. Registration for the 1st audition was done on a first-come, first-auditioned basis, and those who were at the back of the queue would be scheduled for audition the next day in order of the number tags. Participants shortlisted from the 1st audition would then be eligible for the 2nd audition in the Mediacorp complex. Potential superstars would enter the 3rd audition held at the same venue, where the final 20 contestants (10 male and 10 female) would be handpicked by the judges to compete on the broadcast show.

For Season 1, the 1st audition was held at Bishan Junction 8, Level 3, Top Of The 8, from November 19 to November 22 2005. The publicity of auditions on mainstream media started as early as October 2005.

For Season 2, it was held at Toa Payoh HDB Hub, from March 16 to March 19 2007.
