There were stars in the making at Saturday's East Texas Got Talent, see who got the $500 first place prize.

There was magic in the air at the 33rd Annual Texas State Forest Festival this past Saturday. The judges picked 15 hopefuls from over 30 entries. All of the entries submitted a You Tube video to get into the show. Click Here to check out all of the entrants that made the cut.

First of all I would like to thank all of the contestants for taking time out of their Saturday for making this show a huge success. There was a huge crowd to cheer on all of the hopefuls. The judges were on hand to score all of the performances. I don't think I could have picked a group of more diverse people. They did a great job, and didn't even finch at volunteering their time to help out, and I hope they had a great time.
