2017 TOP SIXTEEN FINALISTS
Our talent at last night’s semi-final was the best ever in our thirteen year history! The judges reviewed last night’s video as well as previous videos before selecting our top finalists. The talent was so close, that the organizers agreed to cut out our usual slideshow & dance number that we have every year, so we could take two more contestants to the championship final. It hurt to make the cuts we had to make. For those that are not moving on, please don’t be discouraged – we have seen a lot of growth in many of you. Continue to perfect your singing & performance skills. Remember, we still have summer shows where you can work on your singing & performing skills. You'll come back next year raring to go!! We truly enjoyed meeting all our contestants this year & listening to your performances. In our eyes, you’re ALL winners! We’re looking forward to seeing you again!
