Minute By Minute Review of the 2018 Talent Show

11:15 Start

Act 1:

Nicholas: Seungyoon and Advay are starting the talent show strong!

Eduard: Very enthusiastic. I like how seungyoon said that nba was baseball and fortnite is Nintendo.

Nicholas: Now we have JaeHun playing despacito! That takes a lot of courage.

JeongHun: Fast beats, nice rhythm.

Dan: No mistake in his act. Good job!

Mr. Currey: Why is EVERYONE not dancing right now?!

Nikita: The whole audience is silent as they listen to the wonderful piece.

Mr. Currey: This is a church audience if I’ve ever seen one.

Nikita: LOL

Mr. Currey: Des – pa – cito. SeungYoon doing his best to get the audience in to this show.

Nikita: Crowd goes wild.

Nicholas: Now we have Aris for gymnastics!

Nicholas: She is INCREDIBLY flexible, how has she not broken a bone yet!?

Dan: I have no words. Amazing!!

Eduard: That split was shocking. And what a finale!

JeongHun: Her movements are amazing, nicely matching with song.

Mr. Currey: Everyone in this audience is sore just from watching. Meanwhile, Aris keeps bending and jumping like it’s no big deal. Boss.

Nikita: What memorisation!

Mr. Currey: That last move. How does a body do that? We have an answer: Advay’s body does not move like that. He sure injured himself trying to replicate Aris’ performance.

Nicholas: What an incredible voice!

Mr. Currey: Ayla Dhar singing = Goosebumps.

Satvik: Wow, I never knew that Ayla could sing!

JeongHun: My voice cracks when I try that.

Eduard: I can’t believe she wrote this song herself!

Nikita: What?! Really?!

Satvik: The energy in this dancing is unreal!

Mr. Currey: Sophie and Kai take the stage to dance to a Drake song. This might be a good time to say that I think Drake is overrated. Sophie and Kai however…underrated.

Camila: Everyone is sitting mouth opened at their performance.

Eduard: So much energy is these guys!

JeongHun: What strong movement!

Mr. Currey: I am seriously impressed with how synchronized they are. This makes me feel bad about myself as a dancer.

Nicholas: Someone please tell Advay to stop dancing.

Nicholas: WOW! Katie is singing beautifully, I’m holding back my tears.

Mr. Currey: This reminds me of 8th grade. As in, my 8th grade year. I definitely saw this movie in theatres with my friend Rachel. Good times.

Eduard: She is hitting the perfect notes. So much confidence.

Nikita: Is she in choir?

JeongHun: She must be a singer in future.

Mr. Currey: MAGIC! I am so excited! I really wanted to be a volunteer.

Yubin: Oh my god! How did she manage to guess that?

Camila: Whoahh!! That’s real magic!

Menaha: Safety is number one priority.

Mr. Currey: I think is is so brave to get in front of the entire middle school and do magic. That is the most magical part of this performance.

Mehak: RIP bob.

Camila: I guess bob isn’t dead after all!

Yubin: Bob is alive!

Menaha: I think we should stop fantasizing over Bob now.

Mehak: This was insane!

Nikita: That last one really stumped me, the one with the glass and the hat. How did she do that?
