What’s better than watching America’s Got Talent on television? Watching Stout’s Got Talent live! Talent shows are always better when there are participants you know.

The event is taking place on Wednesday, February 18 at 7 p.m. in the MSC Terrace.

Although often showcasing music based-performances, there really is no limit to what can be done here.

“We always get a couple students who sing either a karaoke version of a song or their own original song,” said event coordinator Megan Anthony. “Other acts we’ve had include a hula hooper, polka music player, rapper and a break dancer. We encourage all acts of all kinds to perform!”

The prize basket is a tech-themed grab bag of goodies. Third place receives a Roku 2 streaming player, second place is a FitBit Flex Wireless Wristband and first place winners get a pair of Beats Solo 2 On-Ear Headphones.

But the goal here is not merely incentivizing with super cool prizes: the talent show is all about having fun. “Students should participate because it is a great way to not only share your talent, but celebrate all the talent Stout has to offer,” said Anthony. “It’s also a chance for students to express themselves and show off a talent they may have been hiding.”
