The search is on! The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking for local superstars to stand center stage and perform in front of the best fans in the NBA.
At 6 p.m. Thursday at Quicken Loans Arena, the Cavs game presentation team will hold open auditions for their third-annual competitive talent showcase, Cleveland's Top Talent.
Judges will be looking for acts that will highly entertain fans of all ages during a Cavs game. From juggling pins, to puppetry, to tap dancing, to balancing a French poodle on a tightrope and strumming "She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain" -- performers of all skill levels are invited to come down to The Q and show off. Judges will select their top candidates and post each audition video on cavs.com, where fans will be asked to vote for their favorite act.
The top two acts selected on cavs.com will lay it all on the line in front of thousands during "Cleveland's Top Talent Night" on Dec. 14 as the Cavs take on the Milwaukee Bucks at 7:30 p.m. During the first half of the game, each act will perform and fans will cast the final vote via text messaging. The winner, and newly crowned Cleveland's Top Talent, will give fans an encore performance during the third quarter.
Registration for Cleveland's Top Talent auditions is free and open to performers of all ages. Pre-registration is highly recommended and must be submitted at least 24 hours before the audition date.
Applicants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Performances requiring the use of fire are not permitted.
