Talent pays big bucks in the Cayman Islands

It is happening again. A show, which is fast becoming an integral part of the entertainment calendar in the Cayman Islands, Cayman’s Got Talent.

Just when it appeared as if the entertainment scene had nothing more to offer, Nolly Brown, CEO of Nolly Brown Entertainment, surprised the public with the search for talented individuals in the Cayman Islands.

The organiser of the internationally popular talent contest concept thinks the reason for the show is to prove exactly what the title says, that Cayman has got talent.

Mr. Brown, a diabetic, teamed up with the Cayman Island’s Diabetes Association, CIDA, to create the talent show, which allows currently unsigned potential stars to gain recognition and a chance at stardom. It also simultaneously attracts funding for CIDA’s therapeutic and treatment services.

Even though the show does not promise a one million dollar first prize or prestigious recording contracts, as in “America’s Got Talent”, it certainly gives the winner the opportunity to become infamous and to start an entertainment career.

However, there is a cash to be won and the children’s category alone has a whopping CI$500 first prize and the first place in the adult category carries a substantial CI$4,000. This preliminary phase of this year’s talent search will kick off on Saturday the 3rd of September and will run until October the 1st.

The competition will begin in East End, move on to North side, then Bodden Town, and from there to George Town before its conclusion in West Bay.

The semi-finals will be held on the 15th October 2011, with the finals staged on the 29th October 2011. The talent show is opened to all indigenous and legitimized Caymanian residents.

Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Cayman Islands Diabetes Association, CIDA to assist diabetics in need of help.
