Buoyed by the success of ‘Little Masters’, a reality show for children below the age of 13, Jaya TV launched ‘Little Masters Season-2’ on February 23. The show, which will be aired every Saturday and Sunday between 9 pm and 10 pm, aims to provide a platform for children to showcase their singing and dancing talents.
The channel had organised preliminary auditions in Chennai, Madurai, Trichy and Coimbatore, which saw more than 1,000 children taking part. Of these, the channel handpicked 100 children who would be performing at ‘Little Master Season-2’. Over a period of six months, viewers would get to watch some of the most promising little singers and dancers in South India, said an official release issued by Jaya TV.
As to what happened to the winners of ‘Little Masters’ first edition – Jaya TV has formed a music band comprising 11 of the child participants of the first edition. The band has already performed in front of a 1,000-strong audience in Chennai, besides performing in a special show in Singapore recently. The band would soon give performances in several other places.
The channel is also planning to ink a one-year performance contract with the band, which would give the youngsters the opportunity to travel worldwide and perform, produce their own music album, give special appearances in major star and celebrity shows, and a host of other activities.
