Thirteen youngsters danced as angels, trees and animals in hopes of winning national publicity for Pattaya on television’s “Thailand’s Got Talent.”
Sponsored by Black Star Jewelry, the students from KC Dance Studio were dressed in elaborate costumes and makeup for the Feb. 18 taping in Bangkok. Parents and teachers alike hoped the performances by the kids aged 5 to 10 would be good enough to make the national show on Channel 3 sometime in the near future.
By the time KC Dance Studio boss Chai Malizon was interviewed for the show, the kids were wiped out, heads bobbing and eyes closing.
The young kids put in a long day for their performance, starting early in the morning with five hours of makeup, hair styling and body paint. The work probably should have waited until arrival at The Mall at Bang Kapi as much of it had to be redone over the next two hours to undo the damage done by twitchy youngsters during the ride.

It wasn’t until 5 p.m. when the kids finally got to practice their moves to music and a single judge. Yet another hour passed until the cameras rolled. By the time KC Dance Studio boss Chai Malizon was interviewed for the show, the kids were wiped out, heads bobbing and eyes closing. But the parents were happy.
Black Star managing director, Yuphin Marsh, mother of one of the little entrants, admitted she thought her child was too young to win, but was still proud she got on stage for the popular show.
KC manager, Narongrith Malison said the studio, which send little kids to the contest every year, won’t know until April if this year’s group will make it on to the next round.
