A TALENTED Worksop lad is just one step away from fulfilling a dream and singing live at the O2 Arena in London.

Adam Pond wowed the crowd and judging panel at the Open Mic UK Regional Showcase and will now perform at the Area Final on 25th November at Bedford Corn Exchange, near Milton Keynes, for the chance to progress to the National Grand Final at The O2 in London on 19th January 2013.

A spokesman for Open Mic UK said: “We are searching for an act that not only has the live ability to impress an audience, industry judges and A&R associates, but an act that has the potential to become a professional recording artist.”

There is more than £50,000 in prizes up for grabs this year and the overall winner gets significant investment. They will also have the opportunity to tour across the UK.
