It was a magical night for the finals of the Big Joe Jersey Talent Show down on the beach at Jenkinson's in Point Pleasant Beach. It all came down to 9 incredible acts and they all sang or danced their hearts out. 

The winner, 11 year-old Paige Sidwa from Forked River who sang Con Te Partiro "time to say goodbye" in both Italian and English. She was absolutely amazing!

Paige walked away last night with $2,000 in cash, A brand new piano from our friend Rick Aquino at Worldwide Piano's in Edison, and of course a brand new Honda Civic LX from Open Road Honda. Rich Jakubowski, general manager and Peter Cartwright of Open Road Honda were there last night to present the keys on stage.

Also, 9 year-old Ava Rose Dressendofer of Roselle Park came in second, and 17 year-old Talyor Frizziola from Jackson finished in third.  They both have great voices and they did an amazing job as well.  It was a great competition this year and really showcased how much talent is here in New Jersey.

There's no doubt in my mind that ALL the finalists from this year's competition will go on to do great things, they should all be proud of their hard work in this year's talent show!
