Online voting runs through Sunday, July 20.
If a contestant is in danger of elimination, winning this round of Fan Favorite voting will push him or her through to a guaranteed spot in the top 10 show, which is at 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 3, at the Prairie Center.
The top 10 finalists will be unveiled next week.
The ultimate Fan Favorite -- determined by all rounds of online voting -- and the grand-prize SCGT winner will be announced Aug. 9 at the Taste of Arlington Heights. The Fan Favorite wins a Funjet vacation for two, while the new grand prize for 2014 is a "STARter Kit." It consists of a concert performance as an opening act for a headliner at the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles, a professional concert-style photo shoot, a promotional video drawn from live SCGT competition footage and professional talent mentoring.
