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. Photo Credit: Isaac Currey 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. Photo Credit: Isaac Currey 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?! Photo Credit: Isaac Currey 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. Photo Credit: Isaac Currey 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. Act 2: Photo Credit: Isaac Currey Mehak: Woah! So vintage it sounds amazing. Mr. Currey: I love classical guitar and this ensemble did the art form justice. Photo Credit: Isaac Currey Mehak: There moves are incredible. Hitting those beats. Yubin: Oh my god! I love this song! Yubin: They are so synchronized! Menaha: Wow. Wow. Wow.

Mr. Currey: Now the crowd gets into it. Great job by Yumin and HaYoung of getting the crowd clapping and pumped up. Camila: I love the combination of Kpop and contemporary. Mehak: What is she going to do? Camila: She is getting the crowd engaged. Photo Credit: Isaac Currey 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!
