Incredible Local Talent Takes the Stage in WBKR’s Friday Night Finale
It's Week #12 of Friday After 5 in downtown Owensboro and there's absolutely no doubt that one of this week's highlights will be the finale of WBKR's talent search- The Friday Night Fight.
Throughout the first few weeks of Friday After 5's 25th Anniversary Season, we had open audition rounds on the Jagoe Homes Patio Stage. The goal? To find eight finalists to battle for our grand prize of $1000 and the right to perform on the Ruoff Party Stage on Friday, September 3rd. Not only will our winner play that stage, they'll play a full 1 1/2 hour set to open for Friday After 5's huge boy band extravaganza, which features members of Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, 98 Degrees and more.
Here's who's stepping up to the mic Friday night to battle for the grand prize!
