Singers wow the judges in Torbay talent contest
THE good, the bad and the uncoordinated battled it out last week at Torquay's Babbacombe Theatre in the second heat of Torbay's Got Talent.
In the most exciting round yet, just six acts were able to go through to tonight's final where a £250 cash prize and professional contract is up for grabs.
Babbacombe Theatre boss and the competition's head judge Colin Matthews said: "The search for talent really took off last Friday and what variety there was, dance acts, guitarists, a comedian, a Michael Jackson tribute and a superb Taekwondo Duo who narrowly missed out on making the final this week.
"It really gave myself and the other judges a tough job but inevitably the strength of the brilliant vocalists won through with some top-notch performers joining the previous week's line up.
"It is going to be an enthralling final and I can see one or two future stars in the making emerging from the evening."
Tonight, singer Keedie Babb, Heart breakfast hosts Matt and Caroline, Herald Express entertainment editor JonPaul Hedge and Babbacombe Theatre boss Colin will have the tough task of deciding the winners.
With the support of the audience, it could go any way.
Tonight's finalists are:
The Tritones (Georgia Elson, Rosie Perkins & Tamsin Roberts)
Allure (Laura Murch and Eloise Cole).
As well as the contract and cash, tonight's winner will take home a photographic portfolio from Pyramid Photography, as well as a professionally produced ten-minute DVD show reel by Horizon Multimedia.
There will also be cash prizes awarded to the runner-up, £150, and for the act placed third £100.
The curtain goes up at 7pm where audience members will have a chance to pick up a free copy of the Herald Express.
