New TV talent show wants you
IPSWICH: Ever watched hit American show Glee and thought “I could do that”? Well now is your chance.
Tower Ramparts is hosting supergroup auditions for new Channel 5 show Don’t Stop Believing from July 2-5.
Presented by former Spice Girl Emma Bunton, contestants will be judged by a panel including actress Tamzin Outhwaite, Blue singer Duncan James, pop star Anastacia and High School Musical choreographer Charles “Chucky” Klapow.
The show’s producers have scoured the country for large groups of Glee and High School Musical type choirs to take part week after week from July 18. But they are now looking for ordinary people to form a supergroup who will give the choirs a run for their money in the live shows.
A custom-built booth will be at the shopping centre from 9.30am-5.30pm tomorrow, Saturday and Monday and 11am-4.30pm on Sunday.
Up to three people at a time will be able to pick a song and then sing along karaoke-style using the words on the screen in-front of them while being recorded by the audition team.
Hopefuls will then be asked to dance and show off their moves as producers are looking for all rounders. Auditionees will also be asked to complete a short questionnaire telling them all about themselves and their ambitions.

The audition tapes are then whisked back to London where the producers will decide who they’d like to cast and add to the supergroup.
“Following the huge success of both Glee and High School Musical, the appeal of show choirs has never been bigger,” says Lawrie Jordan, assistant producer on Don’t Stop Believing.
“While the minimum age limit is 14 there is no upper limit and it really is a case of anything goes! Having the courage to come down and audition at the pod – really could change your life and make those secret dreams of making it big in showbiz come true!”
