Bullitt East’s Got Talent.

Many students gathered in the gym today to watch the annual talent show.

Ten gifted students performed their various acts, including singing, rapping, painting and dancing, in front of the large audience. The performers were very pleased with how their acts went. At the end of the show, Spanish teacher Madelyn Mann made a surprise appearance.

First up was freshman Leighanna Clark who wowed the audience with her rendition of “When I Was Your Man” by Bruno Mars. To support her, many students got out their phones, turned on their flashlights and swayed their arms to the music. Following Clark was senior Kaleigh Foster who sung “Send My Love” by Adele. This is Foster’s fourth year performing at the talent show. “We all equally performed as well as we could. We’ve all made our best efforts,” said Foster.

Junior Sarah Angellis performed for her second time by successfully completing her speed painting. This year, she completed her painting of Lucille Ball in three minutes upside down. “I was very happy with it (her performance). I was nervous all day because there are a lot of nooks and crannies that weren’t there last year. I got a lot more details in,” said Angellis.

Senior Brittany Hopper performed “Too Close” by Alex Clare. Next was senior Avery Pack who changed up the musical genre to country as she performed “Why You Wanna” by Jana Kramer. Both performances received roaring applause.

Switching the acts from singing to dancing, sophomore Whitney Fox enacted an improvisational modern dance to the song, “Cringe.” Fox gained thundering applause with almost every turn and leap.

Senior Kylah Fackler brought back a classic as she sang “At Last” by Etta James. Starting off her performance with a difficult, but well-executed note that rang in thunderous applause from the very beginning, which continued throughout.

“I think (the talent show’s) gone great. They’re so good. I enjoy watching it. It’s kind of relaxing to hear other people’s talent after I’m still nervous,” said Angellis.

Not only showing off his vocal abilities, junior Brendan Dugas seamlessly sang and played his guitar to “The Kill” by 30 Seconds to Mars. After Dugas was sophomore Emily Williams, also known as Lil’ Dizzy Trip, who performed an original rap all about equality, which got many cheers from the crowd.

Ending off the show was junior Chaeli Dossey who enthusiastically performed “Rip Tide” by Vance Joy which collected a multitude of cheers and hollers.

Before the students were released to go home, Mann recited Shia Labeouf’s speech that included the inspirational message of “just do it.”

The talent show was overall very successful. All performers received a great amount of applause from the crowd of students in the bleachers.
