The contest, organised by the Clover Hill Community Association, saw acts compete to win the audience's vote with the top two most popular entries then going before judges who decided the winner.

Out of the dancers and singers entered in the U18s category the audience voted for Chelsea Jeary, who sang 'I Dreamed a Dream' from the musical Les Miserables, and Abotts Dance Academy to go through to the final, where the three judges then crowned Chelsea the winner.
