"Season 11 of Digicel Rising Stars is must-see TV", says songstress Alaine, who recently joined the judging panel.

The singer, who was a guest judge and performer last year, was called to be on the official panel and welcomed it with open arms, "I had a blast last year and, therefore, I was really excited when I was asked to be an official judge for this season".

The energetic Dreaming Of You vocalist insists you can't miss a beat for Season 11. "Now, I am part of the entire process from the auditions straight through to the final show. So, I am much more invested and look forward to the entire journey. Stay tuned," she said.

Digicel Rising Stars, which has a rich legacy in unearthing local persons with talent and bringing them to the national stage, sought to ensure that only the best of the best are a part of the judging panel and adding another international artiste to the mix wouldn't hurt. TOK member Craigy T and journalist and award-winning producer Anthony Miller may butt heads with the new judge this season, and you won't want to miss it.

"I enjoy being a judge, I try to be the kind of judge I'd like to appear before, that is, considerate, honest and fair. Craigy T is great, Anthony, not so much, just kidding. We all have very different approaches and I don't think any one of them is necessarily right or wrong," she aded.

The live shows are set to begin on Sunday.
