This past weekend, many BYU-Idaho students put on the ultimate talent show. Twelve students were selected from the 28 that auditioned to participate in BYUI’s Got Talent. Many talents were showcased such as juggling, singing; beat boxing and even spray painting.
Jordan Jones, a participant in the event, used humor, music, and a little something else, to entertain the audience.
“I’m juggling, that’s exciting yes? I am just going to add a dangerous twist.”
Jones, started with two juggling balls, added another, and another, all the way to five in total. He then went on to juggle pins, and finally the “dangerous twist” he talked about was juggling swords.
BYUI’s Got Talent is a show made available through Talent Activities and has had many people working hard to make it a show to remember. Emily Nixon, the show manger, just wanted people to have fun.
“Um I just hope that they are excited and they had fun. The leis, we had sort of a luau theme, so everyone’s wearing their leis, and we made sure the lighting was all bright, colorful and energetic. And so we just want people to have fun, and see everyone’s talents, have good time, and enjoy themselves for the summer.”
Nixon succeeded in bringing the fun because all throughout the night, laughs were heard and there was also much applause.
If you missed this semester’s show, don’t worry; it will be back in Fall 2014, and there will be plenty of opportunities for fun, whether you are looking to audition or just watch.
