It was a tougher fight for the males, with Daren Tan Sze Wei, the male champion, accounting for 52.72% as compared to Nathaniel Tan's 47.28%. Unlike the 1st season, a contract is only limited to the overall champion, while the rest of the contestants have to wait for recording companies to sign them up.

Daren started off the night with a 60-40 lead in CD single sales. Out of the 5 round of singing, Diya won 3 rounds while Daren won 2 rounds in the hearts of the judges.

Daren won the title of the 2nd season's Singapore Project Superstar with the margin of 59% to Diya's 41%, the closest margin in any star searching competitions held in Singapore at this moment. Previous competition had margins of 61 to 39, 62 to 38, 65 to 35, 64 to 36 and 70 to 30.
