MISAWA AIR BASE, Japan -- Fourteen singers walked across the stage at Misawa Air Base, March 25, projecting their voices through old school and modern songs during the annual Misawa Stars singing competition.
The American Idol-style competition showcases Misawa's singers, grading each performance on voice, crowd interaction and overall presentation.
The competitors are comprised of active-duty members, dependents and local Japanese nationals who have the chance to win $1,000 in cash and 35th Force Support Squadron gift cards. During each show, contestants are eliminated, however each judge has an opportunity to save one person throughout the competition.
The next live performances are slated for April 8 and 22, with a finale following on May 6 at the Misawa Club.
