As a fund-raiser for Operation Santa Claus, RTHK Radio 3 is hosting its own version of a reality show contest tomorrow at Grappa's Cellar in Jardine House. Six local individuals and groups have signed up to take part in Santa's Got Talent. The entertainers will perform their songs, comedy or whatever routine for a panel of three picky judges. The fun is set to begin at 7pm. While admission is free, a percentage of the food and beverage takings will go to the charity drive. Of course, what everyone wants to know is who will be Hong Kong's versions of Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne and David Hasselhoff? Well, CitySeen has learned the comments will be provided by political critic Michael Chugani, assisted by Sevva's main diva, Bonnie Gokson, and music industry curmudgeon (when he's not impersonating bad gweilos in bad local TV series or, at this time of the year, bad Santas) Anders Nelsson (pictured).

RTHK will be recording the evening for broadcast on Christmas Day, but it would be fun to drop by tomorrow night.

You can book a table at Grappa's by calling 2521 2322.
