The winner of each episode advances to the series' finale, which will be filmed before a live audience during the official SXSW OurStage party. The best performance - as determined by the panel - will receive a grand prize of $5,000 along with a number of cool career opportunities, including a professionally produced video interview/EPK shot by Emmy Award-winning Director/Producer Mitchell Stuart

Producer) and Sharon Dastur (Program Director
Z100, New York, NY). Z100 late night jock, Trey Morgan
