Thirty-two Ghanaian singing talents have pulled through to the next stage of the Glo X Factor singing reality show at the final phase of auditioning at the National Theatre in Accra.

The 32, drawn from a total of 50 aspirants who scrapped through preliminary selections in Kumasi and Accra respectively, are the survivors of rigorous screening by celebrity judges, Reggie Rockstone, Onyeka Onwenu and Jude Abaga.

Hundreds of youth, family and friends of contestants thronged the National Theatre yesterday to cheer on their favourites as they sang to impress the judges, qualify for a fiercely contested boot-camp in Lagos and inch close to the $150,000 prize money put up by Glo along with a career-breaking recording contract with the Sony Label.

Ghana's successful contestants incidentally included a Liberian and three Nigerians, all resident in Ghana.

The mood at the main auditorium of the National Theatre was electrifying as the three judges carefully gleaned out contestants for voice quality, showmanship and other qualities.

The auditioning exercise was not without some doses of humour as some contestants virtually sang themselves out of contention and others literally begged the judges to allow them to progress to the next stage with a promise of improving their show.

But judge Rockstone and his colleagues could not be fooled, as they ensured that only the best and most potentially gifted talents were selected.

The thirty-two successful contestants will join their Nigerian counterparts for the boot camp after candidates selected a fortnight ago in Port Harcourt and Abuja are auditioned in Lagos next week.
