An overwhelmingly large crowd for the Bhutanese Star shows

October 02: The top ten singers of the Bhutan Star are touring the Dzongkhags staging shows. They are currently in Paro attracting an overwhelmingly large crowd.

Hundreds of people gathered outside the cinema hall in Paro as the top ten Bhutan stars prepared for the show.

As the cinema hall had a seating capacity of over 200 many had to return home.

Our reporter Karma Choden who has been following the event says the hall was packed with people making it almost impossible for people to walk in and out.

However, the organizer rearranged additional night shows to accommodate the remaining audience. Nidup Dorji, the organizer from Jigdrel Trophel told BBS that they will stage the show for the third night in Paro upon request from the public. He says the crowd is overwhelmingly large.

The crowd was all cheers as the singers performed different songs in Zhungdra, Boedra and Rigsar.

Organizers said the program will help build the confidence of the singers. The tickets were sold for one hundred Ngultrums each. Nidup Dorji told BBS that the proceeds from the show will be used to offset some of the losses the company has incurred.

It will also be used to sponsor the cash prizes for the top five winners. The team will be performing in Wangdiphodrang today. It will then head to Trongsa, Bumthang, Phuntsholing and Gedu.

Meanwhile, the Bhutan Star voting lines are still open and the results of the top five best singers will be declared once the tour is over.
