Vote for Leon Etienne at our America’s Got Talent Viewing Party
First News with Keeler in the Morning on WIBX, in association with WKTV Newschannel 2, has announced "The America’s Got Talent Viewing Party for Utica’s Leon Etienne" this Tuesday and Wednesday night at Tony's Pizzeria and Sports Bar in Washington Mills.
Leon and Romy, the local magic act from Utica, were pulled back into the NBC competition program by judge Howard Stern who reacted to our Twitter campaign asking to give the local duo a second chance. Stern's wildcard pick places Leon and Romy's act back onto the semi-final line-up on Tuesday night.
More than 30 flat screen televisions will be airing 'America's Got Talent' on Tuesday at Tony's in Washington Mills and WIBX's Bill Keeler will be spearheading the 'Get Out The Vote' campaign as the program airs live. Viewers will be asked to call in to specially designated phone numbers to vote for their favorite act. During the viewing party, WKTV's Don Shipman will be giving live updates from New York's Radio City Music Hall during the evening's performances.
There's no admission fee to attend and the event is kid friendly. Tony's will also offer 2-for-1 drink and food specials all night. The event begins at 8 p.m.

The results show will air on NBC Wednesday night, revealing which acts advance in the competition and WIBX and WKTV will both be at Tony's for 'Part 2' of the viewing party. Tony's will offer chicken wing specials and Wednesday night's viewing party begins at 8 p.m.
