WOW! What a night, the 2016 Blast Off Idol presented by GoPro was next level entertainment by all 10 entrants in front of a packed out Club Palm Beach auditorium. It was a supreme lineup that included synchronised swimming, comedy, gymnastics, singers, all-rounders, family groups and guitar acts and each was outstanding making it extremely difficult for the judges to make their final decision.

The talent of the kids who attend Blast Off doesn’t end on the beach with their surfing and sportsmanship. It extends to the stage and the 2015 Blast Off Idol presented by GoPro was no exception. The line up was nothing short of entertaining and every performance engaged the audience and had the judges going wild.
Congratulations to Kaden Smales who took out this year’s event with his song and dance. We were lucky enough to have World Champ Tom Carroll, Ian ‘Dicko’ Dickson (Former Australian Idol Judge) and Sally Mac from Coastalwatch on the judging panel. The judges provided some hilarious and constructive feedback for everyone and were so impressed by the show that the final decisions came right down to the wire.
We also had a special encore performance by the winner of the GoPro Challenge Darcy Piltz. Check out his entry! Thanks to everyone who made this year’s event as spectacular as always and a really fun feature of the Blast Off week.
