Selection of 5 best out of 10 contestants of the 4th round Shingrwa program found to be difficult

Asmara, 19 March 2012 - The selection of 5 best out of 10 contestants of the 4th round Shingrwa contest is getting challenging, stated Mr. Michael Tesfalidet, manager of the program.

He told ERINA that the strong competition observed during the 3rd round got stronger in the 4th round and that according to the schedule judges had to identify the best 5 out of the 10 contestants last week. He also

indicated that because the judges have found it difficult to give their ruling, the announcement of the result would be delayed.

Mr. Michael further explained that because the first round was conducted in every region it demonstrated the nation’s cultural diversity and strong competitiveness and that the competition in the last round is expected to be tough.

Reports indicate that next Saturday, March 24, the judges would have live telephone meeting with people through Eri-TV and that it is hoped ideas that could help the process of the ruling might be forthcoming.

It is to be recalled that in the 1st round Shingrwa contest there were 360 contestants and 100 of them passed to the 2nd round, and that 30 made it to the 3rd round and 10 to the 4th.

The third round Shingrwa contest, which commenced on 19 March 2011, would be finalized on April 15 with live Eri-TV broadcast.

What's the source of this reality-defying super-confidence and business-as-usual attitude Eritreans are displaying amid woyane's frantic attempts to resurrect their Abay Tigray dream ahead of a looming volcanic eruption in Ethiopia ? One would have expected to see Eritrea, as the world's second biggest militarized nation, to be playing war games, and not searching for the next Eritrean idol superstar. Strange people.
