What is GR’s Big Talent?
GR’s Big Talent is a regional, multi-day talent competition hosted by GR After Hours. The competition seeks to discover and showcase the best performers in West Michigan.

Guests will experience a variety of live, one-of-a-kind performances from Grand Rapids and the surrounding areas. GR’s Big Talent will feature a special guest host and judges with entertainment backgrounds.

Registered individuals and groups are judged during the Auditions, vying for one of 15 slots in the Finale Showcase. The Finale Showcase is determined by a combination of Judges comments and public vote (anyone is welcome to attend!) – Performers chosen to move on to the Finale Showcase will compete for one of three top cash prizes, along with an opportunity to appear throughout the 2017 calendar year, promoting themselves and GR’s Big Talent 2017.
