Vanlalhriatpuii – Miss Mizoram 2017 and one of the most popular public figures of Mizoram, Henry Varte – the most sought after Stylist of Mizoram who is a youth icon of the state and the famous singer Feli Thangluah, who with her soulful music has won over the hearts of Mizos like nobody else in the Mizo Music world.

Talent Hunt Shows like these are a great platform for the new generation of Artists who are seeking to launch themselves and I am amazed at the talent these budding artists have exhibited. According to me each one of them is a winner,” said Rody H. Vanlalhriatpuii – Miss Mizoram 2017 and one of the judge.
