Fan Favorite voting begins for Suburban Chicago's Got Talent
The judges for Suburban Chicago's Got Talent have weighed in on which acts will advance to the Top 15 round, but fans can have their say starting Tuesday -- and they could save an act via online Fan Favorite voting.
Starting at 4 p.m. Tuesday, videos of the Top 20 performers captured this past Sunday at the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles will be posted at dailyherald.com/entertainment/talent. Then site visitors can vote on the act they like best at dhcontests.secondstreetapp.com/SCGT-2019-Fan-Favorite-Voting-Top-20/gallery. The act with the most votes automatically advances to the next round.
Online voting continues through noon Saturday, July 6.
Another round of Fan Favorite voting follows the Top 15 show set for 7 p.m. Sunday, July 14, again at the Arcada. The act with the most cumulative online votes wins a prize of more than $300 in gift cards and the chance to perform at Club Arcada, the venue's third-floor cabaret space.
The grand prize for Suburban Chicago's Got Talent features a development package with website development, a custom video, mentor and photo sessions.
The winner gets to headline a concert at the Arcada Theatre and perform in an opening slot for a national act. There's also the choice of a trip for two to either Nashville to meet with music agencies or Cleveland to see the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (airfare, hotel and $200 cash are included).
Suburban Chicago's Got Talent for 2019 is co-sponsored by the Daily Herald, Onesti Entertainment, Amita Health, Zeigler Auto Group and Salon Lorrene.
