I told you Monday about Silicon Valley Voice, an American Idol-style talent show put on by Silicon Valley Bank. Seven hand-picked contestants from around the tech industry took to the Fillmore Auditorium stage in front of a crowd of technorati.
Well, the results are in. Andy Barton, a tech recruiter and Facebook alum, won best performance for his rockin’ take on Bon Jovi’s “You Give Love a Bad Name.” Meanwhile, Sara Oliver, an executive assistant at Electronic Arts, won crowd favorite and best artist; she sang “Rolling in the Deep,” by little-known artist Adele. And, of course, Tim Chang, Raj Kapoor and the gang at CoverFlow tore the house down (above).
I’m still trying to track down official footage of all the performers, but meanwhile here’s a couple YouTube links to the winning numbers: http://bit.ly/Qw6qBq and http://bit.ly/QJKwMN. HT to Tali Saar for the cell-phone vids.
UPDATE: Silicon Valley Bank says the event raised more than $20,000 for the Make a Wish Foundation, Bay Kids and Little Kids Rock. And as overall winner, Oliver directed another $3,000 to Better Lives, which provides medical care in Sierra Leone.
