Of the 20 performers advancing to Round #2, one act will win a golden ticket to the final round by doing the most crowd-funding for the Child Advocacy Center at Hoops Family Children’s Hospital and the WV Children’s Home Society.

Round #2 of Tri-State Stars will take place throughout the day of March 16 at the Keith Albee Performing Arts Center in Huntington, WV. The second round of the competition requires competitors to perform live in front of a small audience and our panel of judges. Judges will score each performance and the top 9 performers will move to the final round of the competition.
The final round of Tri-State Stars will be a red carpet event at the Keith Albee on the evening of April 13. Only the 10 best performers in the area will compete in this live competition, complete with professional sound, lighting, judges, and audience participation. Each performer will be looking to win one of three awards – People’s Choice, Judges Choice, or Philanthropic Choice. Tickets for this event will be available via TicketMaster in mid March.
