Kollaboration has finally reached cowboy country! While being a first for Dallas, it was like everything else in Texas: BIG! Taking stage at the Charles W. Eisemann Center for Performing Arts, locals from the Dallas area gathered to experience the famous local talent that Kollaboration brings out throughout the country. After months of vigorous tryouts and waiting, the seven finalists made their debut to compete for the first annual winner of Kollaboration Dallas 2012. Between the comedic host Joey Guila, special performances by several prominent Asian American entertainers, and an audience talent competition, there was never a dull moment. The event was also sponsored by big names such as MNet, Funimation, YesStyle.com, DramaFever (of course!), alongside with others. The following is the list of finalists in order of appearance.
