The company behind the popular Windy City Gay Idol, now in its 8th year, has provided a stage for Chicago's best singers. Now WCMG expands the search for the most diverse and talented acts in Chicago's gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community with Gays Got Talent. The 2nd annual event will challenge America's Got Talent to include more GLBT talent on their show. The search will begin with two events at Spin (Feb 25) and Roscoe's (March 3) and will showcase any new talent who sign up to compete alongside some of the community's best professionals in the world of music, comedy, dance, drag and more. Up to 20 contestants will perform each night. The act receiving the most audience votes will win $100 cash and will advance on to the Finals. The second and third place vote getters will also advance the Finals. The judges will vote two additional acts through to the Finals. The search culminates March 20 with a big talented gay variety show at Sidetrack where someone will be crowned the audience favorite, winning $1000 cash, American Airlines tickets, Steppenwolf theater tickets, Miller Lite and Skyy vodka merchandise and more. Plus all acts at the finals will be submitted on DVD to the casting department of TV's America's Got Talent.
