Talent Show: Conflicted Judges? Story By: Alistair King
The FBCS talent show was fun and entertaining, with lots of amazing talent and excellent planning it made for a great evening. The Talent Show took place February 24th, and was the 4th annual talent show in the high schools history. These talents were so incredible that there was a bit of indecision with the judges.
The acts were:
Ava & Charlie Harrison – Singing and base
The Brandrew Experience – Trumpet and Drums
Carissa Lonzisero – Singing
Jay Donaldsen – Singing
Ben Shour and Maria Prettyman – Singing and Guitar
Kaiya Fisher – Singing
Ty Olson – Stand-Up Comedy
Charlie Harrison – Drums
Lakiah Turnbull – Singing
Yona Soltis – Violin
Juliya Makhanov – Flute
Cello Dude – Cello
Danial Graham – Guitar
With talent like these its understandable that the judges had a hard time deciding who would win the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes. The prize money was $50, $30, and $10 respectively. First was the Student Choice Award, allowing students to pick their favorite act and have that act win twenty dollars. Daniel Graham received the student choice award and was given $20 for his silky smooth voice. In third place with a tie was Charlie Harrison on his drums and Ty Olson with his stand-up comedy. In second place was another tie, this time being Jay Donaldsen singing and Yona Soltis on her violin. Finally the place everyone was waiting for was… another tie! Daniel Graham and Lakiah Turnbull won with their excellent singing.
What was with the judges? Mark Webber, one of the three judges stated “There were just so many good acts; my favorite didn’t even get in.” The other judges Wendy Thompson and Michael Bigley probably had a hard time deciding as well. With the talents over and some popcorn sold everyone left happy.
Hopefully, we can have an even greater talent show next year and the years after that. If you are interested in seeing the talent show but missed it a dvd will be sold later on for only $5 and will be used for funding some secret endeavors of both Student Council and the Journalism class.
