Judge Alaine said the first seven of 14 'Rising Star' finalists who graced TVJ studios last Sunday night have starlike qualities.

"I think we have a set of obvious superstars before us this season," Alaine said.

Anthonia Atkinson, Touriss, Jasmine Collins, Qurious, Faizon Brown, India Celine and Short Boss are competing for the right to be called Digicel Rising Stars champion.

"I could see the nervousness in some contestants, but others were just hungry for it, and that was really exciting to watch. We definitely have a lot to look forward to this season. They just need to come out of their shells, but it's definitely a huge promise."

The remaining seven finalists will take their turn in the spotlight this Sunday night on TVJ, starting at 8pm.
