It's the final countdown for a local music competition in Jacksonville.
Think American Idol for aspiring locals. Tonight three finalists took center stage at the Britt Pavillion with the hopes of being named this year's "Rising Star." NBC5's Laura Cavanaugh reports.
The other three finalists will perform at the Britt this Saturday, April 27, when the winning Rising Star for 2013 will be announced. Doors open at 4:30 pm. The finals are open to the public and there is no cover charge. But everyone is encouraged to come on out, listen and vote.
