Hayley Westenra will perform and make the presentation to the winner of Operastar (Korea) [ 오페라스타 2012 ] when she appears on NTV there in the final, on Friday 16 March 2012. Many thanks to Hayley's management Bandana, who have given us the following statement:

'Hayley will be appearing on a live TV show, broadcast from Seoul, Korea, on Friday. Called Operastar, it is based on a similar format to the BBC's Popstar To Operastar and Hayley will be performing live as well as presenting the trophy to the winner.'

Hayley's appearance on Operastar 2012 (Korea) included a solo performance of Lascia Chi'o Pianga from Handel's opera Rinaldo; a trio performance of You Raise Me Up (by Secret Garden) along with the two Operastar finalists; the announcement of the competition winner and presentation of the trophy. The winner was soprano Park Gi Yeong [ 박기영 ] and the runner up was tenor Son Ho Yeong [ 손호영 ] both of whom you can see in the videos along with Hayley.
