Performers were selected during preliminary competitions held at each high school.

“Dearborn’s Got Talent!” is organized by the City of Dearborn’s Youth Affairs Commission, comprised of high school students from all three of Dearborn’s public high schools, and Divine Child High School as they work to bring together high school students from across the city through activities that promote teamwork and understanding.
