PRP’s annual talent show kicked off on March 29, 2014. Twelve contestants battled their way through the competition with high hopes of winning.
The energy in the gym kicked up a notch when Jacob Thomas performed Just to be Your Man. He finished by saying “call me.” The audience responded enthusiastically as he received good reviews from the three judges.
One of the most energetic performances of the afternoon was that of Junior Reece Lamaster. As Lamaster sang Wake Me Up, several students emerged from behind the curtains dancing and jumping around. One student even carried another on top of his shoulders. The students fell quiet during Sophomore Jordan Redmon’s performance of All of Me, only to break out in loud applause at the end.
Students waved their arms in the air as Zach Compton took the stage and stole the show with She’s Country. His performance was awarded with a standing ovation from his peers.
Lexi Harrod captured the audience with her fierce dance to Sail. The audience and judges were impressed by the energy and emotion Harrod brought to the dance. Cheers came from the audience as Romello Henderson and Da’liya Tandy danced to a remix of different songs. Judges were amazed to learn that their dance was self-choreographed.
The final performance came from a few faculty members, who sang Jump.
At the end of the show, the judges announced Merideth Ailiff’s performance of Let It Go as the overall winner. Jordan Redmon won second place, and the judges awarded Lexi Harrod’s third place for her amazing dance. The faculty judges were Jason White, Megan Miller, and Julie Nichelson.
