Amongst the people seen everyday in the hallways, each has a unique and special talent. Holy Innocents’ is bursting with talent, as demonstrated in the annual NHS Talent Show hosted Jan. 7.  The National Honor Society (NHS) showcased the school’s most talented singers and/or musicians in this show. There was even a guacamole-making, speed-knitting act represented by our math department here at Holy Innocents.’

Two senior members of NHS, Rachel McGovern and Henry Brown, hosted the show. They kept the audience entertained and light-hearted in the times before and between acts. There was also a select panel of judges assigned to score each act.

While each performer in the show demonstrated extraordinary talent, the judges had to come down to a final decision of first, second and third place winners.

 

Judging this year’s show was really hard. It was such a hard decision because I was overwhelmed by all of the talent.”

— Ms. Amie Muir

The 2015 NHS Talent Show was unlike any other high school talent show. Sophomore Dean, Ms. Amie Muir, expressed her surprise with the amount of talent because in her mind, “I think of high school talent shows as silly, not too serious and funny; but I was super impressed with how serious most of the acts were and it really felt like I was at a concert.”

Although Ms. Muir and the other judges had difficulties in judging, they came to a final decision in the end. The group that secured themselves for third place was Stir the Fog, performing their rendition of Come Together by the Beatles.

Second place went to Grace Asbury, singing I’m Not the Only One by Sam Smith.

The position for first place was secured by the group Too Much Tuna, consisting of Iain Thomas, Zach Henry, Graham Thomas and Ben Myer, as they performed She Talks to Angels by The Black Crowes.

This year was an impressive one for the NHS talent show. Students and other members of the Holy Innocents’ community look forward to performing in or seeing the many talented people our school has to offer.
