He says trying out for the auditions in the Lae heat was just for fun.
But his story tells us otherwise, because he had to travel 265km from Popondetta in Northern Province to Lae, in Morobe Province, for the auditions.
And this time, it’s 143km from Popondetta to the capital city, Port Moresby, for semi-final 1, where he will be competing with eight other acts.
Judges of the show say the semi-finals will be tough and Jack Spade has come a long way to turn back now.
“I will perform something called reminiscing, where I reminisce to my previous show and I’ll step up to the next level, hopping to the next level. I hope the viewers and fans agree with my performance tonight,” he said.
He added that the surprises in store for the semi-final act also include a totally new-look Jack Spade.
The first semi-final airs on TVWAN Life at 7pm, tonight, January 14.
