Minute Talent Show
This year there were 16 entrants in the Two-Minute Talent Show at the Idaho County Fair.
The top 3 in each age group received cash prizes. 1st place received $100, 2nd, $50 and 3rd $25.
Taking first in the 5-12 year old age group with “Fiddlin Fun” was Elliot Marks. Second place with “Love Without End” were Kyle, Caleb and Abby Frei.; Third went to Lydia McRoberts for “Up Jumped the Devil.” First and third were both fiddle performances while second was a vocal performance.
In the 13-18 year old age group Lauren Stubbers took first with “There’s Your Trouble” which also was an apt description of her performance as it started with the CD not playing then her microphone wouldn’t work once they got the CD to play. She got to do it over and like a real trouper did well enough for first place. 2nd went to Sarah Davis and Bridget Lusich for a clog dance performance to “Banjo Boy.” 3rd went to Josie Laufenberg for her vocal performance of “Don’t Rain on My Parade.”
In the 19 and over age group Shantal Laufenberg took first place for “The Crooner” which was actually a vocal performance of “I Could Have Danced All Night.” 2nd went to Nathan Finkhouse for his guitar and singing performance of “Forever a Dreamer” which he also wrote. 3rd went to Erika Nelson for a guitar, singing and yodeling performance of “Cowboy Sweetheart.”
Also performing in the 5-12 year old group were Hailey Russell and Grace Vopat with a vocal duet of “Mean,” Aaron Goeckner with “The Happy Harmonica,” and “Me & God” a vocal performance by Erin Chmelik, Rachel Chmelik, Jessie Sonnen and Hailey Stubbers.
Others in the 13-18 year old group were Hunter Angeny with a guitar and singing performance of “Honey and the Bee,” Patricia Williams with “Guitar Hero” and Hailey Williams with “Theme” a keyboard performance.
Also in the 19 and over group was Marci Eades with a spoken word performance of “Everything a Mom Says in 24 Hours.”
