The Next Star might just be a Manitoba teen.
Winnipegger Paige Prescott, 14, has been chosen as a Top 12 finalist on the YTV singing competition, which recently launched its sixth season.
Prescott, who also plays guitar and mandolin, made the cut during auditions held at the Winnipeg Convention Centre in May. Toronto and Winnipeg auditions were featured on the July 29 episode of the show.
Judges Keshia Chanté, Tara Oram and Mark Spicoluk gave the Winnipeg teen a "golden ticket" to travel to Toronto and compete in the finals.
