Former New Talent Singing Awards, Students Can Sing and Vocalibre contestants Amy Wong, Cherrina Hong, Sandy Sun, Natalie Lam and Ann Chau helped lead our nine finalists on stage to introduce themselves to the excited audience. Together, they all helped create an unforgettable opening to the evening.
The first part of the show consisted of the finalists’ talent performance. #1 Elaine Qian took to the stage first with her accordion and tango performance. #2 Serena Kwok “enchanted” the audience with her rendition of this classic Taylor Swift song. #8 Jessica Leung moved the audience with her self-composed song “Someday”. #3 Ida Tsang wowed with her traditional Chinese dance using the umbrella. #5 Xiaoyu Chen captivated the audience with her elegant Chinese traditional dance. #4 Patricia Chen performed a self-taught hula hoop performance. #7 Anna Tian put her years of belly dancing experience on display with her performance. #6 Joely Ho wowed the audience with her Chinese opera dance.

In the swimsuit Question & Answer session, the finalists donned chic swimsuits and put their public speaking skills to the test with our Master of Ceremonies duo.They embodied the beauty of pageantry, both inside and out, and showcased their confidence to the fullest.
The theme for this year’s fashion show segment was ‘a different side to our world’. In groups, our finalists took to the stage to show off the gorgeous outfits and put what they have learned in the past few months on display. The first group, consisting of #1 Elaine Qian and #2 Serena Kwok, brought oceanic life to land as betta fish and goldfish enhanced their elegant gowns. #3 Ida Tsang and #4 Patricia Chen proved that there’s a different side to a bug’s life. The embroidered gowns for #5 Xiaoyu Chen and #6 Joely Ho showcased the elegance of mystical creatures. The gowns for #7 Anna Tian, #8 Jessica Leung and #9 Angela Li featured some of nature's most incredible creatures: birds.
Guest performers James Zhou and Shuhei Nagasawa then took to the stage to serenade the audience. Zhou took to the stage first, performing a mashup “Thinking Out Loud” and “Fly Together”. Nagasawa then performed a soulful version of “Never Enough”. Their duet performances of crowd favourite “Love Confession” and “Growing Fond Of You”, where the nine finalists also made an appearance, garnered exuberant applause from all in attendance.
