The “Weflix” talent show was hosted by the Student Council in the auditorium March 19. Over eight contestants showed off a variety of talents such as dancing, singing and acting. The top three and fan favorites were awarded at the end of the show. 

“The Talent show is StuCo’s major fundraiser during the spring and part of our income from that is thanks to concessions,” Student Council Historian Luis Lopez said. “This year we had to sell concessions to the side of the Auditorium so that people wouldn’t be tempted to eat in the small enclosed Auditorium lobby. But we managed to make it all work and still have an amazing show.”

The “crowd favorite” was chosen by the audience. The student council put jars at the front of the stage. During intermissions, audience members were encouraged to go and put money in their preferred acts’ jars. The act with the most money at the end of the night wins the title of Fan Favorite.

Senior Aiden Klutts and bandmates Lucas Plowman, and Brady Kowaleski, known as Triple Forte, took home the two highest awards of the night: First Place and Fan Favorite for performing a Jimmy Hendrix tune called Voodoo Child.

“Performing was a blast,” Klutts said. “It was our first time performing in front of a crowd like that, so it was a killer time for sure. Being voted first was also super exciting. We’d been working on that song for a while so it felt like the work really paid off.”

Juniors Tailene Morales and Naomi Rodriguez took home second place for dancing to My Love by Justin Timberlake.

Junior Karyss McKeel took home third place for singing the song Drivers License by Olivia Rodriguez.

“I always enjoy performing,” Mckeel said. “The crowd is always so mesmerizing.”
