Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall has gotten off to a tremendous start. The competition, which is in its third season, brought out over 300 potential Kings and Queens last week to Montego Bay.
Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall will have three more audition dates with the next being at Leiba’s Esso in May Pen on Saturday December 19 then moving on to Amnesia Night Club in Ocho Rios on Saturday January 9 and Kingston’s Lime Light on Saturday January 16.
From each audition 5 princes and 5 princesses will be chosen; totaling 50 for the audition elimination shows on TVJ beginning Saturday January 23. On every Saturday 10 contestants from each audition will vie for four (4) spots on the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall live shows. The first audition show on January 23 will feature the 5 princes and 5 princesses selected from Montego Bay. The contestants will only go through via the voting choice of Jamaica; with the 2 princes and 2 princesses with the most votes moving forward to the next round.
At the end of the audition shows, 10 princess and 10 princesses will then perform for Jamaica live on TVJ beginning Saturday March 6. Each contestant will compete in front of judges Miss Kitty, Scatta and new judge Professor Nuts, and attempt to win the votes of Jamaica. Every Saturday a prince and princess will be eliminated from the Magnum stage until only one King and Queen emerge, walking away with $1 million dollars each, a professionally produced single and video.
Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall continues to expose new talent to the main stage. The competition will take May Pen by storm this Saturday as competitors from that side of the island seek to break onto the dancehall big stage and make their mark.
