LITKIDS Open Mic is a virtual talent hunt for kids with multiple disciplines including speaking, acting, poetry slam, storytelling, singing, instrumental, rap and book review. Season 1 of the contest received entries from 25 cities across the country.
Organisers reached out to 3,000 schools across the country to solicit entries from April to June 2020. The top 32 kids across categories were shortlisted for the live finale.
The finale was judged by fashion and style consultant, and phygital motivational speaker Neeraj Gaba; anchor, actor and soft skills trainer Lipi Goyal; Rajneesh Jaiswal, Founder, Grace Acting School; singer and percussionist KG Ramnarayan, Co-founder - Wobble Creative and Content, Producer - Times of Music; actor, director, writer and producer Archana Deshmukh; Harry Parmar, Casting Director, Mukesh Chhabra Casting Company; and Tabassum Modi, Director, Victor Tango and Founder, LITKIDS.
On the contest and the quality of contestants, judge Neeraj Gaba said, ‘It was wonderful to experience the zeal of the participating kids coming through the screen! From the concept of the stories, their expressions, voice modulation, confidence, command on language et al, it all came through seamlessly. I was excited to see how they managed to forge a connection with their digital audiences so fabulously.”
Tabassum Modi said, “LITKIDS started as a lockdown project four months ago and has soon grown to be a powerful community of over 10,000 talented kids! LITKIDS Open Mic is one of our offerings where we wanted to create a safe yet impactful forum for kids to showcase their talent and get recognised. The idea was not just to do another talent hunt, but also nurture and expose this talent to opportunities to flourish as the LITKIDS Talent Pool. We have already launched the season 2 of LITKIDS Open Mic and response that we are getting is nothing short of amazing.”
The audience continued voting for the finale even 72 hours after the live show, said organisers. All winners and finalists are to get real-life opportunities to perform at various prestigious public platforms, they added.
LITKIDS Open Mic Season 2 is now open for entries.
