Compared to Port Moresby, Ailyn says there are a variety of talents and each came prepared for the auditions.
“What we did not see in Port Moresby, we are seeing it here. Port Moresby gave us the more usual acts like singing and dancing, Lae on the other hand has a drama group, two or three magicians, a few comedians, rapping, beat-boxing.
“We did not expect this much and the youngest who auditioned on Saturday was about 4 or 5 years old. Most who auditioned are mostly teens and in their early twenties, with sereral elderly people,” she said.
