TORONTO – “Canada’s Got Talent” is increasing its top prize to $1 million.
Citytv says its competition series will return for a third season with a bumped-up award from parent company Rogers, described as the biggest cash prize in Canadian television history.
In addition, CIBC will award $25,000 each to six Golden Buzzer acts, or entertainers deemed good enough to progress from auditions straight to the semifinal.
The news was revealed during Tuesday’s Season 2 finale, which awarded a grand purse of $150,000.
This year’s winner is the dance act Conversion from Trois-Rivières, Que., who will also receive professional financial advice as well as the chance to perform at the Luxor Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas as part of “America’s Got Talent Presents: SUPERSTARS Live.”
Applications for Season 3 are open on the Citytv website.
