Jamaica’s TV land will once again be transformed as the auditions from the five locations, Montego Bay,?May Pen, Portmore, Ocho Rios and Kingston, will showcase contestants soliciting the public’s vote and hoping to be crowned top princes and princesses from each audition.?

Sanjay, one of the show’s producers, outlines that Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall is out to create swagger: “It’s not only the one million dollars that each winner will get, we will be having the addition of a backstage feature, which will explore the behind the scenes of what really takes place at the live shows.”?

The producer also highlighted that more dancers will be featured this year unlike last season when only one set was used: “We are trying to introduce a different group each week.”


On the matter of the guest judges, Sanjay explains: “Last year we went mostly for artistes, this time around we will be using other credible persons within the industry as well.”

It is expected that the viewers will have a difficult time deciding who will go on to the finals.


Sanjay commented on the success of the auditions: “The turnout for the auditions was great; we had females turning out who were equally as good as their male counterparts.?It’s a bit early to say we see anyone in particular who will take a title because it really depends on the voting pattern of the public as to who goes and who stays.“?

Next week, Saturday January 24, the May Pen posse will be broadcast followed by Portmore (Jan 31), Ocho Rios (Feb 7) and Kingston (Feb 14).? Audition shows will end broadcast on Saturday February 14 and a re-cap of the audition shows as well as the Kingston result show will air on February 21.?These highly anticipated “live” shows will commence on TVJ on Saturday?28?February 2009.
