Darren Espanto is now among the Top 6 finalists and is ranked number 1. At the last elimination round, Darren performed Rihanna‘s “Only Girl in the World.” Darren is the youngest among the Top 6 finalists (and the smallest, obviously, lol).
The Next Star Finale will be held on September 23, 2012 and the winner gets a two-song deal with Sony Music and $5,000 in shopping money from Sears.
Judges of The Next Star are: R&B singer Keisha Chante, country diva Tara Oram and music industry executive Mark Spicoluk. The Next Big Star is now on its 5th Season. Photo courtesy of The Next Big Star Twitter page.
