This was the first year the competition had an instrumentalist section, along with the singers.

The finalists had two weeks to prepare their solo performances with help from Mrs Ramsay and Mrs Donaldson.

On the night the event was hosted by Aleysha Bathgate, P7, Julie Hannah, P5 and Victoria Findlay, P5, and all children performed to the high standard that is come to be expected of the competition.

The judges were Jamesie Strachan, Diane Pert and Liz Oates, who had a tough job decided on the winners, but in the end the results were as follows:
