On Friday April 26, students showed off different talents that made these seemingly ordinary students extraordinary at the annual talent show, hosted by Brian Rice (11) and Jonathan Gross (12). There were 15 acts consisting of solos, duets, dancers and bands.

“My favorite part about the talent show is finding out that people you never would have guessed did something cool or different [and it] blows you away. I love meeting a whole new crowd and being able to to bond and hang out with people you normally wouldn’t backstage,” Mia Gjeldum (11) said.

Mia performed her original song called “Heartbreaker” and won second place in the solo division. Also in the solo division, Marshawn Fondren (12) won first place with a performance on the drums dedicated to Levi Evans.

In the duets category, first place went to Sara Anderson (11) with Jake Wahlen (11), and second to Samuel Kirmani (10) with Jackson Spanburg (10).

As for bands, The Losers, which consists of a band, the Klassic Krew breakdancers and a beatboxer, placed first, and “Guffaw” took second.

“Since there were so many good acts, I was honored to be placed that high,” Jesus Hernandez (11), a member of “The Losers,” said.

Cassandra Marsh (12) won first in the dance division.

“Winning is great, but I like performing because I’m not on the school’s dance team so it shows how capable of a dancer I am and how serious i am about dance.What made me the happiest was when people came up to me after and said they really liked it and what a great dancer I am,” Cassandra Marsh (12) said.

“The Losers” came out on top, winning first place the overall event.
