Video auditions for Dixie’s Got Talent open through Nov. 11

A fundraiser for student scholarships at Dixie State University, Dixie’s Got Talent is now hosting open auditions for Southern Utah’s most talented performers.

Video auditions for the talent show are open until 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 11 at dixie.edu/DGT. From the first round of open submissions, nearly half of the contestants will be invited to callback auditions. From there, approximately 20 contestants will perform to a sold-out audience at the Dixie’s Got Talent Finale Show at the M.K. Cox Performing Arts Center on Jan. 27, 2022.

“This is our 11th annual Dixie’s Got Talent Finale Show and it really is the most-anticipated event of the year,” John Bowler, Dixie State’s alumni relations director, said. “Dixie’s Got Talent is an amazing community event showcasing local talent and a wonderful opportunity to raise scholarship money for Dixie State University students.”

As part of the callback round, voting for People’s Choice Finalists will be open from Nov. 17 through 10 p.m. on Dec. 4. The youth and adult contestants with the most votes will automatically advance to the Dixie’s Got Talent Finale Show.

A prestigious panel of judges and audience voting determine the winners of the finale. The first-place and runner-up winners in both youth and adult categories receive cash prizes, gain exposure before a large audience and hold the title of Dixie’s Got Talent winner or runner-up for the year.
