COMPETITION: Win A Recording Session!


Are you fed up discussing the good, the bad and the outright crazy performances on 'The X Factor' this year? Are you tired of always being the critique and never the star? What if you could have a go yourself?

Well now you can, because HuffPost Celeb have teamed up with experience days specialist, to offer you the chance to be a pop star for the day – on the Silver Song maker Pop Star Experience!

With the live shows now well underway, they have launched an exciting experience where would be performers can pay to record their own song and accompanying video in a state-of-the-art studio – and you could be one of the first to try it out for free!

After some basic coaching you’ll take to the mike to make some real music – and all before starring in your very own pop video. You’ll receive some basic training from seasoned sound engineers, two hours of studio time, and some awesome finishing touches to your video in the form of cutting-edge graphics.

The competition closes Friday 9 November 2012 at 5pm. Please ensure you have read our terms and conditions before entering.

Good luck!
