Star Awards opens doors for first fan meet

It was a unique opportunity for fans to mingle with local stars.

Miss Calista Yong was one of the 510 fans and sponsors invited to nightclub Butter Factory for the Star Awards 20 Top 40 party, a two-hour fan meet with MediaCorp celebrities, including Desmond Tan and Julie Tan.

The stars picked out their hotline numbers on stage for the Top 40 Most Popular Artistes category for the annual awards next month.

A few lucky fans also went on stage to play some simple games with them.

In previous years, this event was usually held behind closed doors in a hotel ballroom, for the media.

Miss Yong, 24, a teacher, had the chance to take photos with her favourite actors, such as Romeo Tan, Zheng Geping and Zhu Houren, on Friday night.

She said: "In the past, we wouldn't have had the chance to do this. The stars that I took photos with were all very nice and friendly."

Local actor Elvin Ng, whose fans came ready with big posters bearing his name, said: "This is a novelty, and I think it's fun. I am very grateful to my fans who have been giving me their unwavering support."
