Last Sunday, I watched the grand finals of the nationwide kiddie talent competition, SM Little Star held at SM Centerstage in SM Mall of Asia.
The event fell on a Sunday when most of us are spending time at home, watching these smart, talented was super fun. I also salute their proud parents cheering and dancing in front of the stage during the talent portion, it was inspiring.

I also like the flow of the program - presenting the finalists, talent portion (sets of five) then question and answer. It was spontaneous and the whole program short. The kids (both the candidates and the kids as audience) enjoyed. I saw children in the audience dancing, imitating the dance steps of the finalists.
Through SM Little Stars kids were able to show their talents, have fun and gain confidence through various public exposures and workshops and win huge and exciting prizes.
