ONLY one act will walk away tonight as this year’s Kaila! star.

The 10 finalists, who have survived tough rounds of competitions in the past weeks, are in their final hours of preparation and are ready to rock the stage tonight.

This year’s Kaila! Star Search consultant, Savuto Vakadewavosa, said expectations were high for a great crowd.

“Tomorrow (tonight) we are expecting a great crowd to be here in Nasinu, first time ever and it is also a new venue for the Hibiscus Festival as a whole,” he said.

“We are excited, nervous and overwhelmed but we know it’s going to be a good show.”

Savuto said the finalists were ready as rehearsals were happening from last week until yesterday evening.

He is urging the public to take time out to come and witness the talents these 10 finalists have to showcase.

He acknowledged the Hibiscus Events Group chairman, Hirdesh Prasad, The Fiji Times outgoing general manager/publisher, Hank Arts, and other various sponsors for continuing to support the event. The finals will be held tonight at the Valelevu grounds in Nasinu at 7pm.
