Gunning for the crowd

Bianca Boyce.

The crowd at the 36th annual Richard Stoute Teen Talent Contest seems to be very tough this year. So when contestants performing in the fifth preliminary compete this Sunday they will have to put their very best foot forward if they want to move the Plantation Garden Theatre audience.

There may not be a category for crowd response in the judging process, but it is often noted that generally the crowd reaction can mirror what the judges eventually decide.

The contestants this week have vowed to top the standard set last Sunday when Jabarrie Hurdle was crowned winner of his preliminary.

They are:

6-12 years

Crystal Lavia — Rumour Has It and Jar Of Hearts

Reniece Bonnett — Spotlight and No one

13-21 years

Jermaine Oxley — Ave Maria and Ave Maria

Rashida Green — Set fire To The Rain and If I Could

Jessica Walrond — California King Bed and How Can I Not Love You

Patrona Robinson — Mr Big Stuff and Last Night

Ashley Rover — I Know Him So Well and Sugar Candy Kisses

Dario Piggott — Georgia On My Mind and Use Somebody

Sherece Chandler — Saving All My Love and I Will Always Love You

Nickyl Blades — You Raise Me Up and I Believe

Charice Waldrond — Children Of The Net and Still In Love

Anita Charles — He’ll Do It Again and Carry Your Candle

Over 21

Shelly-Ann Niles — Give Me Your Heart Tonight and Fly On The Wall

    Bianca Boyce is one of the most beautiful and talented singers I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I watched her perform at the Almond Casuarina resort in Barbados the week of January 13-19,2012. She was fantastic. I had the pleasure of getting up on stage with her, and though I looked foolish she certainly did not. I feel in love with her instantly. The notes that Bianca could reach just wowed the crowd as well as myself. She was having alot of fun with the people in the audience and enjoying every minute of it. I hope that I get the opportunity to see this beautiful woman in person again.

    Sorry, I put the wrong year in for my comment about Bianca Boyce. It should have read January 13-19, 2013
