In celebration of Singapore Television’s 50th anniversary, MediaCorp threw the biggest countdown party of the year, “Celebrate TV50”, at The Float @ Marina Bay on New Year’s Eve.
The seven-hour show, broadcasted “live” on Ch5 and Ch8 from 8pm to 1am, opened with a grand red carpet walk, where members of the public got upclose and personal with their favourite local TV personalities from past to present.
To honour the artistes who have left an indelible mark on Singapore's entertainment scene, a special Celebrities' Walk of Fame segment – consisting of various song and dance performances – was put up during the show, taking the viewers on a walk down memory lane.
A line-up of over 40 local and overseas artistes capped off a night of entertaining gigs, including a hilarious skit by Moses Lim, Bryan Wong, Gurmit Singh and more, and medleys presented by young local artistes and former reality singing contest finalists.
The biggest highlight of “Celebrate TV50” had to be the live sets by UK’s popular boyband The Wanted and Mandopop superstar Wang Leehom, the finale act after a breath-taking 8-minute fireworks display that ushered in the New Year at midnight.
