The semi-final was broadcasted live on TVWan Plus and will continue for the grand final on the 9th of December.
The contestants came with different talents and performances; two comedians, two magicians, three break dancers, eight singers and a dance group.
Out of the sixteen contestants, only eight will make it to the finals.
Viewers around PNG are asked to cast their votes to see their favourite performer through.
“It’s easy as sending a text message to 16705 so if you’re at home and see whichever performance you like, please text the initial of the contestant to 16705,” said host Leon Gawi.
Competition judge and artist, AKay 47, described the competition as tough but terrific.
“It’s up to PNG now to vote for who they think is the best,” he stated.
The winner of the Digicel Stars talent competition will be driving away in a brand new Nissan Patrol, custom built Ironman 4x4 series from Boroko Motors.
