Aspiring vocalists across the province are once again invited to audition for Variety's Got Talent presented by Coast Capital Savings.

The winner of the third annual competition will receive a Rising Star music package and appear on the Variety Show of Hearts Telethon Feb. 16 and 17, 2013.

Finalists will have the rare opportunity of performing before a panel of music industry and celebrity judges, including music manager Bruce Allen and Global BC's Steve Darling.

The competition is open to all B.C. residents ages 13 to 29. Audition videos should be submitted to from Jan. 2 to 16. Variety requests that videos run between two to three minutes, with singers performing a capella, to track, or with acoustic guitar or keyboard accompaniment.

Ten finalists will compete in the Variety's Got Talent Finals on Feb. 9 in Vancouver.

Nine of the finalists will be chosen by music industry professionals from Sam Feldman & Associates. The tenth finalist will be chosen by the public in the People's Choice Competition.

Fans can log onto The Province newspaper's website and vote for their favourite performer from Jan. 27 to Feb. 3 to select the tenth finalist.

All finalists will perform before a panel of judges and a live audience at the River Rock Show Theatre on Feb. 9. The winner will be announced at the end of the show and will appear on the Variety Show of Hearts Telethon that airs live on Global BC from Feb. 16 to 17.
