Mississauga has one chance left to make a big splash this season on the popular Canada’s Got Talent TV show, and it comes tonight (April 25).

The Dreamboats, the last of three Mississauga acts still standing in the competition, will appear on Tuesday night’s episode of the hit televised talent show. It airs at 8 p.m. on Citytv.

The Dreamboats are an award-winning ’50s and ’60s tunes band that for the last year-plus has taken up residence in Southern California in an effort to make more headway in the music business.

They’ll do battle tonight with a dozen or so other performers from across Canada as contestants compete for the grand prize of $150,000 awarded by the on-air talent competition.

Mississauga singer/musician James Alcock, 52, who’s been singing professionally for about seven years, and rock choir Voices Rock Prime, based out of Applewood United Church in Mississauga, were eliminated from the competition on the April 11 episode.

The three Mississauga entries are among 82 contestants from coast to coast to sign up for the latest installment of the hit TV show, which began airing March 21.

The season will conclude with a live, two-hour finale on May 16 at 8 p.m. at the new OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls.

The champion will win $150,000 and the opportunity to work with a financial advisor to help realize their financial dreams, producers of the show say.

They’ll also get a chance to compete south of the border in the America’s Got Talent Presents: Superstars Live stage show in Las Vegas.
