It’s almost time for BlizzCon, which means this year’s Community Night—featuring the Costume, Talent, Art, and Movie contests—is fast approaching. This year, we’re doing something a little different: the Talent Contest will be judged live by a trio of special guests! Here’s who we’ve got in store for Friday night.
