The Philippines’ biggest mall-based kiddie talent search, SM Little Stars, is back for its 15th year, and it’s bigger and brighter than ever.

SM Supermalls is inviting boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 7 to showcase their talents, whether it’s singing, dancing, acting, playing an instrument, acrobatics, or something unique.

Since its launch in 2003, SM Little Stars has been providing a platform for young Filipinos to shine and launch their careers. Past winners like Nhikzy Calma (2013 Boy Grand Winner), Chun Sa Angela Jung (2014 Girl Grand Winner), and Marcus Cabais and Sheena Bentoy (2016 Grand Winners) have gone on to achieve success in showbiz, modeling, singing, and dancing.

SM Little Stars alumni in this photo include Nhikzy Calma, Lance Lucido, Haley Magtoto, Esang de Torres, Jourdanne Baldonido, Aljon Christoff Banaira, Eduardo Joson II, Chun Sa Angela Jung, Haley Magtoto, Gaea Salipot, Sheena Bentoy, and Aleynah Redillas.

Registration for the preliminary screenings began on June 5 through the SM Malls Online app. The preliminary screenings kicked off on June 8-9 and will continue on weekends through July 13-14. The grand finals will be held on September 7 at SM Mall of Asia, where 28 grand finalists will shine bright on the big stage.

2013 SM Little Stars alumnus Esang de Torres, who’s also known as Lea Salonga’s MiniMe, now serves on the 2024 SM Little Stars panel of judges. 

The grand winners will receive P100,000 worth of cash and SM gift certificates, P30,000 worth of Toy Kingdom gift cards, a brand new Suzuki Dzire GL MT, and 100% scholarship on tuition and miscellaneous fees at National University.

They will also receive a one-year talent management contract from Sparkle-GMA Artist Center, a trip to South Korea for two for 5D/4N, an annual pass certificate for unlimited bowling and skating at SM malls, 30 regular ride tickets at SM by the BAY Amusement Park/Sky Ranch, and gift vouchers for a two-night stay at Radisson Blu Cebu.
