The latest round of online voting for Suburban Chicago's Got Talent is under way.
Now through noon, Friday, July 27, the general public can have their say in the summer-long contest by voting on a Fan Favorite from the top 10 finalists.
Videos from the latest round of competition have been posted online for those who couldn't make it to see the performers in person at the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre in Arlington Heights this past Sunday. Voting in this round is vital, since the Fan Favorite with the most votes will be guaranteed a spot among the competition's final five.
In the previous round, country singer/songwriter Woody James of Millington led the Fan Favorite tallies with more than 11,749 votes.
The winner of Suburban Chicago's Got Talent will receive a chance to audition for next season of NBC-TV's "America's Got Talent," while the ultimate Fan Favorite with the most online votes will get a Funjet vacation for two. Both winners will be announced at Taste of Arlington Heights on Aug. 11.
Suburban Chicago's Got Talent is co-sponsored by the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre, the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce, Schaumburg-based law firm Gardi & Haught LTD, Wintrust Community Banks, College Textbooks and the Daily Herald.
