From dancing to slam poetry, the talent show really kicked off the beginning of homecoming week. The huge crowd showed their raider pride and spirit through their support of the wide range of acts. The turnout at this year’s talent show was huge, almost completely filling the first three sections in the auditorium.

“There was a much bigger, supportive crowd as compared to last year and the support makes the events special, it’s makes them more Rangeview.” said Manuel Cerna, 11

The talent show was hosted by Mr. Hill, Mrs. Angel, and Mrs. Sexauer, who chose the first, second, and third place winners. In third place, there was a tie between Curtis Hodges (12) whose talent was rapping and Deron Solomon (12) and Tayler Ohu’s (12) singing a duet. Taia Jones (11) who performed first, singing a cover of Unsteady by X Ambassadors came in second place.

“I was surprised by some of the performances because at first glance you wouldn’t expect that from most of these people.” Manuel Cerna, 11.

Jordan Jenkins wowed the judges as she received first place, stealing the show as the last act. Jenkins performed in the school talent show her freshman and junior year as well but without the encouragement of her friends she wouldn’t have competed this year. As first place winner, she has the chance to perform at the homecoming assembly that will be held on Thursday along with the other scheduled acts.

“I don’t get a lot of opportunities to dance at the school so I think it did help me showcase my dancing skills. I always love to do the talent shows because of the vibes backstage and the support of everyone there; you make a lot of friends with similar interests.” says winner Jordan Jenkins, 12.

Almost twenty students showed off their special talents in a variety of areas such as singing, rapping, violin, step, and dancing.

Having the day off on Friday cut homecoming week short, but Rangeview has still been able to pack in events for each day of the week.
