Junior Superstars is a Tamil television show that has kids aged between the years 5-13 contesting for a spot in the finals. This is a reality show where the kids will be judged on their calibers. Every kid who is talented in any field can participate in this show, which is a podium for finding the best talent across the state. They are put through a series of challenges and tasks where they will be judged based purely on their talent, skills, creativity, and spontaneity. In the process, they are also shedding off their fears and their inhibitions slowly, thus emerging as better and more confident versions of themselves. Usually, many kids suffer from the fear of stages, thus inhibiting their abilities.
