We are so excited to announce that Season 2 of Kids Got Talent will be airing through YourTV Quinte on Saturday, April 17th at 1:00pm! Be sure to save the date, and get ready to enjoy VIRTUAL Kids Got Talent from the comfort of your own home!
Kids Got Talent premiered in February 2020 as the main fundraising event for the Children's Safety Village. In its inaugural year the show saw great success, raising over $70,000! Now, KGT has become an annual event for the Village. Generous sponsors, talented kids, and a committed team of volunteers make this event possible.
Kids Got Talent aims to celebrate local youth and gives them a platform to showcase their incredible skills and creativity. The competition is the only youth-centred talent show in the Hastings - Prince Edward - Quinte region and provides a unique and extravagant setting for youth to perform.
This year, in the wake of COVID-19, Kids Got Talent and its fundraising efforts are more important than ever! The Children's Safety Village is committed to delivering barrier-free safety education to local youth and support from this event goes directly towards critical youth safety programs. Let's celebrate together and help keep our kids safe!
This year, KGT has gone virtual! With the help of YourTV Quinte, we are bringing the talent to your home. Tune in from the comfort of your own couch and help us celebrate these amazing kids!
But what does a virtual show look like?
Contestants will be recording their acts from home and submitting them to KGT by March 1st. Our judging panel will meet to select the winners of each category and the overall grand prize winner. Don't worry - we still have our amazing emcee, Dug Stevenson, lined up for your entertainment and to introduce the acts.
Next, YourTV will put together all of the footage of our contestants, judging panel, and Dug to create an incredible viewing experience for you at home! Even though things are different this year, all the glitz and glamour of last year's event will be there and this year we want your input! The People's Choice Award will be given to the audience's favourite act - follow us on Facebook for more information leading up to the event (https://www.facebook.com/kidsgottalentbelleville).
