GR's Got Talent?
GR's Got Talent is a brand-new, multi-day talent competition that seeks to find and showcase the best performers in West Michigan.
Guests will experience a variety of live, one-of-a-kind performances and have access to the best in Grand Rapid's food and drink. GR's Got Talent will feature a special guest host and judges with entertain backgrounds.
Registered individuals and groups will perform at the Auditions (you're welcome to attend!) for one of twelve slots in the Finale - all bands will audition at the Pyramid Scheme in the GR's Got Talent Battle of the Bands! Performers chosen to move on to the Finale will compete for large cash prizes - First Place will receive $1,000! This will be an event unlike any other, so you don't want to miss out!
