Young Kings deliver on 'Digicel Rising Stars'
Sadeke Brooks, Staff Reporter

Judges Conroy Wilson, Alaine and Anthony Miller have a chat during the show.

It was probably the deejay duo Young Kings who stole the show at a relatively average staging of Sunday's 'Digicel Rising Stars' live show that was held at the TVJ studio on Lyndhurst Road, St Andrew.

The energetic pair had the audience entertained throughout its short performance in which deejay and singer exchanged the spotlight at intervals.

"You guys are naturals," judge Anthony Miller said. "You took that song and you owned it. No dethroning Young Kings tonight."

Other judges Alaine and Conroy Wilson were just as impressed with Alaine stating that they set the place on fire, while Wilson said they were "full of vibes".

Earlier in the night Lionel Williams struggled to sing Labrinth's Beneath Your Beautiful and was reminded that his good looks could not guarantee him a place in the competition. Decent-looking herself, Quan'I gave a better showing and even seemed to impress the judges.

"Vocally, I like her. I still think she could bring more to the stage," Wilson said.

JL came next and his personality shone through his short interview, as well as his performance.

"You are likeable. You have a sweet voice. I think your personality will win people over, but you have to work on your vocals," Alaine said.

Miller was not impressed with Roberta Ramsey. The other judges however believed a different song would have shown off her voice better.

Singer T'Rizzy was chided for sounding fake. Miller said he sounded like a boy singing a man's son.

"You could hear a put-on voice," Wilson added.

But Alaine argued that "there is a lot of promise. You have shown the most vocal control. I hear what they are saying about putting on, but let your voice be heard, you are really talented."

Sarai-Lee ended the show with Unconditional. The judges agreed that she was a decent performer, but still needs improvement.
