Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Most fun I've had hosting a show in a long time! Everyone showed up! Very few tech problems! And the presentations were ALL over the top AWESOME! Thank you to everyone who participated! Now the DB2 Community needs to get busy and VOTE for their favorite contestants by LIKING YouTube videos!

DB2's GOT TALENT 2016 - Final ROUND #4

We have one more contestant video for you to watch and learn from. It is conveniently embedded below. This year voting is achieved via "Liking" the videos. So, if you like a contestant video, if you like the contestant, or if you learned something from the video, then click the THUMBS UP to like it! Apparently the ability to "LIKE" a video (thumbs up) is only available on YouTube (not via the embedded videos below).

Download, and listen to, the complete replay files below to hear the comments made by our judges. The feedback from judges is intended to help our contestants improve their presentations via compliments and constructive criticism.

The DB2Night Show is free. The education is free. It has always been free since inception seven years ago. It is estimated that The DB2Night Show has provided over $20,000,000 worth of classroom DB2 education value to the DB2 community. That said, yes, you will need to watch short commercial advertisements from our sponsors before the DB2's GOT TALENT Contestant videos begin.

In addition to a contestant video, we had some special guests make appearances, plus our judges and host all gave informative presentations. You can LIKE these videos if you want, but these people are ineligible for winning DB2's GOT TALENT 2016 prizes. Find these under "Extra Videos" below.
