Background of Telenor Karaoke Champion Programme
Telenor launched its first nationwide karaoke champion competition on March 14, 2016, offering the winner a prize of MMK 20 million, and a chance to produce an album released by Telenor through its My Tune music portal.
In search of the champion, two Telenor-branded music trucks rove around some of 28 places in 18 different cities across 13 regions and states, and Nay Pyi Taw. At the same time, recording booths are also set up in selected Telenor-branded shops to give everyone a chance to join the search.
All video recordings are being screened by representatives from Gitameit and Telenor Myanmar to shortlist 50 candidates from each state and region. As a next step, Tin Zar Maw, R Zar Ni and Phoe Kar will choose the top 5 from each region.
Top five candidates’ video from each region will be uploaded week by week on Telenor Facebook and aired via the music show “Walk With Music” on Channel 7 for public voting. Based on the voting through Facebook and SMS, total 13 candidates will be chosen for the Grand Final. The three judges will choose the grand winner at the final concert which will be held in Yangon. Sixty percent of the total score will be judged by the three judges and 40% will be based on public voting.
