The 5th annual “LCU’s Got Talent” production at 7 p.m. March 5 will be a night during which a select group students get the opportunity to show off their talents and compete for the winning title.
This year’s lineup includes Riley Braun, Collin Lea, Ethan Curtis, Jo Carlton, Nikki Cobb, Liz Griego, Zoe Mahugh, Lauren Camp, Rylee Hubbard and last year’s champion, Stella Oliver. Mariah Cannon, LCU’s student involvement coordinator said this is a highly anticipated event each spring.
“‘LCU’s Got Talent’ is one of my very favorite events because people from all over campus are drawn together to support their friends,” said Mariah. “This is the fifth year for GT and each year it has gotten better.”
The LCU Student Senate and the production crew spend weeks preparing for the show. Mariah said it’s quite the impressive event.
“From the performers to the lighting, to the emcees, to video introductions — LCU’s Got Talent is something you don’t want to miss! I would encourage all students to come support each act and vote for their favorites!” Mariah said.
Meet the JudgesAs if performing in front of people wasn’t scary enough, there will also be judges voting on their choices for the best talent. The judges this year are President Scott McDowell, Shirley Cope from the Student Affairs office, Dr. Byron Rogers of the science department, Sal Aguirre from LCU Dining Services and Cade Killough, a senior Mass Communications major.
How are you feeling?
“I’m pretty nervous, but I’m excited to go preform!” Riley said.
“Honestly, I am really excited to see how it goes! I think that the audience will be pleasantly surprised by our act, so I’m really anxious to see how they respond!” said Lauren.
LCU’s Got Talent is put together every year by the LCU Student Senate. For more information on past year’s shows, visit https://thedustertoday.com/2020/03/lcus-got-talent-stella-really-is-a-star/.
