LOS ANGELES, CA – Kollaboration is proud to announce that its newly added show, “Kollaboration Star 2012 – The Finale” will be taking place on Friday, November 16, 2012 at the beautiful Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA. As the capstone to their annual talent competition series, which finds the best local talent in 12 cities throughout the United States, this grand finale show will give this year’s winners a even bigger opportunity to showcase their talents.
In addition, Mnet, a youth entertainment brand for all things Asian cool and the only national, English-language lifestyle television network in the U.S. for fans of Asian pop culture, followed Kollaboration to the 12 local competitions and filmed the shows and their winners for an original new TV series. From these 12 Kollaboration winners across the nation, 6 finalists will be selected by a public online poll and 1 finalist will be chosen by Mnet to represent their cities in this ultimate showdown to declare themselves the best of the best. The grand prize winner will win $2000 and a trip to Hong Kong, China to attend the acclaimed Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA).
Celebrating 12 years of fulfilling its mission of “Empowerment through Entertainment,” Kollaboration has partnered with Mnet to produce a spectacular event that will truly highlight the incredible growth and development of not only the Kollaboration movement, but also the Asian Pacific Islander American/Canadian (APIA/C) presence in the entertainment industry as a whole. To give the competitors maximum exposure, the Finale Show will be aired later in the year as part of the Mnet-produced reality television series: “Kollaboration Star 12012.” Catch Kollaboration’s television debut during its series premiere on Thursday, October 18, 2012 on Mnet America (www.mnetamerica.com) at 6PM PT/9PM ET.
