Presented by Redsfest, this year's finalists of Cincinnati's Got Talent will receive the opportunity to perform at a Cincinnati Reds 2012 home game. As of now, three Xavier students may be among those five performing. Senior Katie Giuliano and juniors Taylor Brown and Johnathan Long have been advanced to the semi-finals round at 9:15 p.m. on Friday on the Redsfest Main Stage for a panel of judges.

They will be performing an arrangement of Adele's Someone Like You for harp (Giuliano), voice (Brown) and violin (Long) which was arranged by Xavier senior Timothy Graulty. When asked about their advancement to the semi-finals and impending performance Brown said, "I am extremely excited for Friday's semi-finals. The final product and performance is worth every ounce of work we put in. Having the opportunity to perform in front of a crowd willing to listen is a musician's paradise. These are the moments I live for." The grand prize for the eventual winner, which is to be determined at 4 p.m. on Saturday, is $1,000 with $500 going to the runner-up. When asked what she would do with the money, Brown said, "I would like to spend the money on a trip New Orleans for the sweet sixteen competition to cheer on my muskies…or I will probably save it for spring break."
