Watch the trailer for the first show below:
Ten thousand online votes whittled down the field from 60 competitors to 12 contestants for the 2nd Annual Top Talent Search. The final 12 performed for a large crowd at the Little Lake Musicfest last night. The three judges (David Goyette, Michael Bell, and Shannon Stanlick) picked the final three: Amanda Middleton, Kassy Gray and Clayton Middleton.
Then the winner was chosen: Congratulations Amanda Middleton! Her performance started with a mellow "Temporary Home" by Carrie Underwood, but then transitioned into the lively "Last Name".
Amanda receives $1,000 for her high energy winning performance, as well as other sponsor prize packages such as a studio recording of her act from Cogeco. Kassy Gray finished second place and Clayton Middleton received third.
