Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

First, again, thank you to all of DB2's GOT TALENT contestants and finalists. This fun way to learn about DB2 would not be possible without your contributions! I have received heartfelt personal emails from Chris, Sree, and others that share the positive impacts that DB2's GOT TALENT have made in their lives.

We set a new record for DB2's GOT TALENT voting. The worldwide DB2 community cast 1,367 votes that were used to determine our winners. Without further ado, here they are:

  • 1st place: Mohankumar Saraswatipura, Reckitt Benckiser Plc
