And the winners are ... Rockinver!
Following months of auditions and rehearsals, the big day finally arrived last Friday and what a spectacular afternoon of Lochinver Talent we were in for!
We were treated to a wonderful and ambitious range of instrumental solos, comedy acts, voice solos, voice and instrumental duets and even an energetic display of parkour! After much deliberation, the judges had a very difficult decision to reach but it was the teamwork, energy and rousing performance of 'Gonna Fly Now' from 'Rocky', which took first spot and 'Rockinver' who lifted the trophy! Congratulations Max, Alex, Rafael, Kobi, Ben, Henry and Joshua!
However, the show would not have been possible without all of our amazing performers, who were all winners in their own right! Special mentions must go to Harry, Jack, Zane and Folarin for their heart-stopping voice solos, to Mario and Leo for their original and moving brothers' duet, to Jack who wrote and performed his own song, to Callum and Jake for their beautiful piano solos and to Eddie and Ravjoth for their incredible parkour display! We were also delighted to welcome back last year's winner, Alex, who wowed the audience on piano and voice with a medley from 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.
Last but not least, massive thanks must go to Mrs Lund for organising such a fun and entertaining show, to our panel of sparkling judges, Mr Walker, Mrs Cortes, Mrs White and Mr Griffin, to our dazzling MCs, Mr Donohoe and Mrs Barry, and to our devoted audience for their animated support of the performers, not to mention this year's Head Boys' Charities!
Roll on Lochinver's Got Talent 2020 - can't wait!
