Flaunting your musical skills in an enclosed space is one thing; strutting your stage presence in front of a live audience is another.

The latter is exactly what the Top 12 finalists of this year’s Project SuperStar had to do during their first meet and greet session at Junction 10. For some of them, it was their public singing debut; for others, it was another chance for them to redeem themselves after not-so-successful attempts in previous competitions.

Some star power was lent to the event by Dasmond Koh, Shane Pow and Jeremy Chan, who will be hosting the program when it premieres on Channel U next month. Jeremy Chan himself was a finalist in the second season of Project SuperStar; Dasmond has hosted countless talent shows including Star Search and Campus Superstar; and this is Shane Pow’s first hosting gig.

Before the show kicked off, we caught up with Dasmond to hear his thoughts on this year’s batch of hopefuls. Although he confessed he hasn’t had the chance to really get to know the Top 12, he had some good advice for them.

“Appearances matter, but being unique and showcasing your personality is more important than just being good-looking," he said, adding that the contestants' song choices are also a make-or-break factor in the competition.
