Marketing Executive Juno DeRoche noted that over 100 persons auditioned and judges Vynette Frederick, Brian Alexander and Adrian Bailey later narrowed down the talent to 40 and later to the top 10.

DeRoche announced, “Viewers will see how Digicel SVG arrived at the top 10 persons and from there they will have two weeks to make a decision as to who two contestants would go forward to represent St.Vincent and the Grenadines from seven other countries and hopefully bring back another rising star.”

The Digicel Marketing Executive emphasized that viewers can see the top 10 Digicel Rising Star contestants perform on Sunday night on SVG TV and select their favourite singer by texting the digits that appear on TV screens beside their names.
