A NATIONWIDE search for a new singing sensation comes to the home of jam butties this weekend.
No, not Playground at the Hilton - but the Mecca bingo club in Knotty Ash.
It is hosting live auditions and recording sessions to launch Star Search, a brand new national talent competition being run by Mecca across the UK.
"The best singers at the Knotty Ash event stand a chance of joining other local and regional heat winners at a star-studded national final, which is being held as part of a Star Search celebration weekend at Mecca Blackpool in June," it says here.
And the overall Star Search winner will receive the "ultimate star treatment" as their prize, jetting off to Los Angeles on a once-in-a-lifetime trip for two to Hollywood, with accommodation in a top Beverley Hills Hotel and spending money thrown in.
The auditions at the East Prescot Road bingo hall are being held from 4.30pm on Saturday (January 10). Entrants will be able to select their own backing track on the night and all performances will be filmed.
Videos of each singer will be uploaded by club staff to the Mecca Facebook page, where people will be able to vote for their favourites, who will then progress to the next stage of the competition.
Entries for Star Search are accepted via live auditions at Mecca bingo clubs or via www.facebook.com/MeccaBingo , where singers can upload their own videos of themselves performing, whether onstage or just in front of a mirror in the bedroom. The competition is open to over 18s only.
Mecca area manager Mike Sime said: “The live auditions are great fun and are a good alternative for those who don’t want to enter online."
Mecca Knotty Ash will host a small number of other live auditions before the closing date of 22nd February. Dates for these sessions are available by contacting the club directly on 0151 220 6468 .
