If you want to be in with a chance of becoming our Voice of 2012, you better be quick!

The closing date for entries is midnight on Sunday, April 1, so you’ve got just over three weeks left to get involved.

Voting will open around the same time, and the public will be able to vote for their favourite acts via a coupon printed in the Falkirk Herald each week.

The ten acts with the most votes will make it to our glitzy Grand Final at City Nightclub on Sunday, May 20.

They will have the chance to perform on the fantastic stage, accompanied by our fantastic house band, Dignan, Dowell and White, in front of our panel of judges.

They will have the tough choice of deciding which one should follow in the footsteps of last year’s winner, Larbert High schoolboy Colet Selwyn.

The winning singer will receive £250 cash and the chance to record a three track single with our sponsor, Chris Judge from Voice Jam.

Runner up will receive £100, and will record a two-track cd, while the third placed contestant will receive £50 and will record a single-track cd.

Family and friends will be able to come along and support the finalists, and tickets will be on sale soon for the final.

So, if you think you’ve got what it takes to become our newest singing star, then why not enter now?
