A media release from the Department of Youth Affairs & Sports in the Ministry of Education and Culture revealed number of changes to this year’s competition which is themed ‘Battle of the School(s): Glee Edition’.
“There will be two semifinals nights instead of one because we will be taking three finalists from each school. At the semifinals, only one person from each school will move forward to the finals, ” said Director of Youth Affairs Brenda Lettsome-Tye.
She further said all finalist will be provided the necessary wardrobe and training to ensure that the focus is placed on the execution of their talent.
“One of the things that we believe is that we need to treat all young people equally and give them an equal footing. For the competition, all they will have to worry about is presenting their performance on stage,” Lettsome-Tye explained.
