Who needs Simon Cowell when you've got...Sebastien Bassong!

The defender formed part of a judging panel as Power of Dreams 2010 took place at Millfield Theatre in Edmonton this week.

An Enfield Council initiative, supported by the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, Power of Dreams aims to unearth the best young music and dance talent the London Borough of Enfield has to offer.

Auditions had been held across the Borough in recent months to whittle down acts to compete in the Grand Final.

And as an added extra for the finalists, their performances were assessed by Sebastien, who sat alongside a number of local dignitaries in judging the acts.

The Cameroon defender admitted to enjoying being part of an evening in which the talent on show was of an impressively high standard.

He said: "It was good to see the talent on show amongst these young people. It's not the type of thing you would associate a football club with, but it's great for the community that the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation get involved in these initiatives - and great for the players to show support as well.

"I think I was a nice judge overall, but all the acts were unbelievable so I don't think there was any need for me to be like Simon Cowell!

"But on a serious note, it's also very important for young people from this area to have the opportunity to be able to focus on dance or music and stay away from trouble.

"For me, it was good to have a bit of fun and relax away from the pressures of football yet still be able to help the Club in some way."

There were three categories judged on the night.

First up were the Under-16 singers, a category conquered by young Tiffani Singh-Brown for her rendition of Alicia Keys' How Come You Don't Call Me.

The Dance category was a close-run affair, just edged by 'Cerebro''s spectacular performance ahead of quirky act 'Popper & Locker'.

And talented 17-year-old Edmund Jeffrey walked away with the top prize from the Over-16 singers category for a performance of his own song, Part-Time Musician.

Power of Dreams 2010 is part of Enfield's campaign for peace amongst all communities regardless of faith, race, sexual orientation or disability promoting tolerance and harmony for all. The event is endorsed by the Enfield Hate Crime Forum.
