The 20 performers chosen for this year’s event will take the stage in front of a packed 1,200-seat auditorium to sing, dance and otherwise try to charm their way into the hearts of a prestigious panel of judges and the voting audience.

This year’s judges include international performer and YouTube sensation Alex Boyé, Grammy-nominated artist Merrill Osmond, St. George Health & Wellness magazine editor Kristi Osmond, former Miss Utah Krissia Hall, emergency medicine specialist Dr. Nate Holman, Broadway-touring performer Rachel Holman and director of DSU Campus Store Aaron Meadows.

The winner and runner-up in each category receive a cash prize, and winners also receive a travel expense-paid trip to the next “America’s Got Talent” auditions.

“Dixie’s Got Talent is a wonderful event that showcases our amazing local talent,” John Bowler, Dixie State alumni relations director, said. “Equally as exciting, all proceeds go toward needs-based scholarships for Dixie State University students.”

Dixie Scholarship Associates, in cooperation with the Dixie Foundation and with the support of Dixie State University Student Alumni Association, produces this highly successful community event annually. All proceeds go toward scholarships at Dixie State University to assist students who would otherwise be unable to continue their education due to financial or life changing events.
