After auditions and semi-finals, 12 contestants took the stage for the finals of Apple Blossom’s Got Talent.
“I think the talent just gets better and better each year. It’s been very successful, we’re getting people that are from out of town, not just the locals,” said Apple Blossom’s Got Talent co-director Theresa Gaines.
There were four experienced judges including an awarding winning choir director and the winner from the year before.
“It does bring something different to Apple Blossom and it’s not your typical party where you go, you buy your ticket, you dress up in your little outfit that you might have,” said Apple Blossom’s Got Talent co-director Jennifer Catob.
Contestants competed for a grand prize of two thousand dollars.
“It’s around 24 to 30 at each audition and then for the semi-finals it’s 24 and then they narrow it down to 12,” said Gaines.
After the first round of finals, judges narrowed it down to the top six performers.
“It takes a lot of work on the contestants part to really pull something together,” said Catob.
The band Lowly Souls took first place, pole fitness performer Kristen Novosad took second and duo Claudia Largent and Elliot Eyre took third.
