Karaoke Star Jr. is a reality television show for children that airs on YTV and CMT. This show is just like the show Karaoke Star, except it features kids instead of adults. It is hosted by Paul McGuire (CMT) and Phil Guerrero (YTV). The purpose of the show is to discover Canada's first ever Karaoke Star Jr. The show premiered on YTV and CMT on March 16, 2009 at 7pm ET. New episodes of the show now air every Monday on these stations. Jamiee is the winner from the first season.

Gameplay[edit]

The show travelled to eight Canadian cities: Vancouver, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Halifax, and St. John's. There, young singers between the age of 6 and 15 could audition. In each one, five singers (seven in Toronto) were selected to sing in front of the judges.[1] Then the public voted by SMS for their favourite singer from each city. These eight singers will be competing in the show's finale.

Singers could also audition online by uploading a video of them singing. The public also voted for their favourite cyberstar. The one who got the most votes will be joining the eight singers in the finale. The judges also got to choose their favourite cyberstar; he/she will also be competing in the finale.

These ten singers will travel to Calgary, where they will sing in the Performance Showdown on May 18.[2] The public will then vote for their favourite one. After that, in the Finale on the next day, the announced winner (determined by who got the most votes) [2] will win the grand prize of $5000.[3]
