FROM Opportunity Knocks to The X Factor, talent shows have been unearthing stars of the future for decades ... and they have seen many Glaswegians take their first steps to stardom.
Now the Evening Times is giving you the chance to shine in our very own Glasgow's Star Turn contest, which could set you on the road to the big time.
As well as the countless famous acts to emerge from Glasgow there are many more who have gone undiscovered, never getting the opportunity to show the world what they can do.
So if that's you, or someone you know, who has been hiding their talent from the wider world then Glasgow's Star Turn is your chance to change that.
The chance to perform at the Merchant City Festival awaits the finalists, and who knows what the future holds after that.
So, whether you are the next Susan Boyle or Billy Connolly this contest is for you.
The details of how to enter are on page seven, along with some encouragement from our columnist Michelle McManus – someone who knows more than most how a talent show can change your life.
As she says, 'nothing ventured nothing gained'.
And there will certainly be plenty to gain for whoever is crowned Glasgow's Star Turn.
