Utica illusionist Leon Etienne sent out a personal message on Sunday to the people of the Mohawk Valley in advance of his live performance on NBC's America's Got Talent on Tuesday evening.

"I'm asking for you to show us some love," Etienne said in his video blog and he explained that the public, and not the judges, will determine which acts move on to the next round of America's Got Talent.  The winner of the show receives $1 million plus a chance at their own show in Vegas.

Etienne and his partner Romy Low will perform live at Radio Music City Hall on Tuesday night's show starting at 8 p.m. and at the end of the program, a phone number will be displayed inviting viewers to call in and vote for their favorite performer.  People are allowed to vote up to 10 times for every phone number they have, that includes cell and landline.  Additionally, votes can be cast online by going to the AGT website.

During the video, Leon is asking for the people of the Mohawk Valley to cast as many votes as possible at the end of Tuesday night's live show in hopes of advancing the duo to the next round.  He's also asking for people to share this video with all of their friends and family.  To share this story, click above.
