Wives at the Illinois State Fair are testing the strength of their vocal chords, belting out their best at the annual Husband Calling Contest.

Contestants used their voices, props and anything else to being their men to the stage.

They were judged on their volume appeal and originality.

Every call was as entertaining as it was outrageous.

The first place winner received a $250 cash prize.
