But unlike other centres, the Mount Hagen talent is unpredictable for the judges and is expected to surprise them.
Loop PNG got to talk with the super judge of the Yu Em Khax show, Calextus Simeon:
“The Mt Hagen auditions is one that is hard to predict, frankly speaking, because I don’t know what kind of talent to expect.
“We know that up in the highlands, they may have some surprising package for us.”
“I would like to see talents from the Highlands because one of the things we are lacking are talents from that region.
