Calling all Dancers, Singers, MCÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s, DJÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s and PresentersTalent:UK Live wants you!
This summer Talent:UK Live went on tour to three Butlins holiday resorts across July and August in the search for the UK's hottest new talent including budding Singers, Dancers, DJs, MCs and TV Presenters. This Autumn Talent:UK Live tour will be hitting Schools and major City Centre venues including Birmingham, Manchester and London. Live stage events will offer stars of the future the opportunity to showcase their talents and if successful, to go through to the grand final on Monday 20th December to be judged by a panel of experts from the Music, Dance, Gaming and DJ industries.
Dance:UK will launch Dance:UK : XL to coincide with Talent:UK Live with demo units and sampling to take place at each venue over the Autumn. Dancers will be able to strut their funky stuff on the latest version of the award-winning original 8-step dance game for PlayStation®2 before it's release in December 2004. Dance:UK : XL includes new multi-player and party modes and fantastic new headlining tracks including Boogie Pimps (someone to love), DJ Casper (cha cha slide), Blue (all rise), Big Brovaz (nu flow), Blazing Squad (flip reverse) and Atomic kitten (ladies night).
Gamers will also get the chance to see the revolutionary new Gametrak® motion control system for PlayStation®2. Gametrak tracks your movements and puts them into the game Ã¢â'¬â€œ play Gametrak:Dark Wind, the hotly-tipped beat-em-up where your punches control the action, and Gametrak: Real World Golf, where your actual golf swing is tracked with split-second accuracy in the most realistic golf game ever created!
Contestants will compete to win fantastic prizes including Playstation and X-Box consoles, PS2 Software, Dance Mats and Sunfly Karaoke bundles. Dance diva finalists will have their moves featured on the next Dance:UK game using state of the art motion capture, talented presenters will go on to win a spot on a radio show, Singers will cut their own CD in a state-of-the-art recording studio and all finalists will star in 'Cosmo Girl' magazine!
Butlins and Talent:UK Live tour will be searching for the next generation of music talent culminating in the December final at Butlins Bognor Regis where you could win major prizes plus the chance to sing or dance on the same stage as you're favourite pop group such as Big Brovaz, Westlife or Busted!
