Lee's Summit's Got Talent has quickly become the metro's premier talent competition. Returning this summer for its fourth season, Lee's Summit's Got Talent boasts the most talented performers in the Greater Kansas City. Extraordinary performers compete for the coveted $5,000 cash prize and the Crowd Pleaser Award. Back by popular demand will be Matt Lewis and Kristen Merrell on the Season 4 celebrity judge panel. Joining the judges panel is local stage actor James Wright.
The competition is open to all ages and all types of talent giving performers an opportunity to showcase their unique talents on stage. This is a true variety show format with singers, dancers, magicians, jugglers, comedians, animal acts and any category in between.
The talent search begins with auditions in April before a panel of judges. Last year over 65 hopeful acts auditioned for the chance of moving on to the finale. Twenty acts are then selected to perform in the show in June and compete for the cash prize. Season 3 winner Jerome Johnson, a soloist, walked away with the $5,000 cash prize, for his rendition of "I Have Nothing", beating out 19 other acts that competed in the finale. Jordan Haas won the "Crowd Pleaser" award singing "When I Was Your Man".
