Sometimes finishing as the Runner Up in a reality show can be a good thing. Examples of artists who have not gone on to win include JLS, Olly Murs, Cher Lloyd whom all competed in The X Factor in the UK. All who have gone on to acheive fantastic things.
Back in 2009 Brock Zanrosso took part in the Second Season 2 of Canada’s The Next Star. At the time Zanrosso was just 15 years old he was quickly catapulted into the spotlight, which exposed his raw talent to millions and attracting a broad and loyal fanbase. During the competition, Brock had the opportunity to work with R&B singer Shawn Desman, who produced One More First Chance, which Brock performed at the finale.
January 2010 saw the debut single Push These Walls released through Hipjoint Productions. This song was both upbeat and fun, also prior to its release, the preview garnered over 6300 views on YouTube. Edge (End Of The World) was the follow up which was released in June. “The story behind Edge is that there are two people in a relationship and one of them has to leave and they are trying to make most of the last night that they have together.” 6th January 2011 saw the release of 3rd single Perfect Storm and this is a fantastic pop song.
From what I have heard Brock is a phenomenal singer/ performer and it shows that it’s not the end of the world if you are the Runner Up.
