Auditions for Crossville’s Got Talent Show September 9 | Lifestyles
Does Crossville have talent? You bet yes. Most people, regardless of age, have talent, but they are reluctant to show it! When you hear the word talent, most think of singing and dancing, which is great, but don’t forget those other fun acts that can put a smile on people’s faces.
Whatever your talent, Crossville’s Got Talent Show would like you to audition. A wide variety of different types of acts makes for a great show! Singing, dancing, dog acts, all kinds of comedy, magic act, playing an instrument, ventriloquist, anything entertaining is welcome.
You never know who will win. There will be cash prizes, gift cards, studio recording time, show tickets and a great panel of fun judges, like the winner of Crossville’s Got Talent 2017 and artist and songwriter Ted Monday, local singer and entertainer with big band “Cumberland Swing Experience” sound Terri Ann Utsey, and local singer/songwriter/musician and host of ‘Open Mic’ at the Palace and most recent host of the ‘Three Dog Night’ celebration », Rich (Wet Wood) Peterson.
If you’ve ever seen the talent show on TV, you’ll see that the judges don’t always agree, and sometimes there are quarrels between them in their rulings. You can see some of the same displays here in Crossville’s Got Talent, but it will be for fun.
DJ and Donna Garrison, who have done a great job hosting in the past, will be this year’s host and co-host.
