OML @ Papillion Idol

  by    0   0

Being a business owner there are always things you have to do… some fun and some not so fun.  This year I was asked to appear as a guest judge at the Papillion Idol competition that kicked off the festivities of Papillion Days 2015. I dragged Natalie, the lead singer of eNVy to judge with me and she opened the show with the National Anthem and then a Jason Miraz song.

The competition began with the K-6 Category.  I couldn’t believe how brave these kids were to get up and sing in front of all of these people. We heard covers from Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Jewell, Megan Trainor and more!  This kids didn’t miss a word.  I was impressed by how some of them so young had so much stage presence. Here is a picture of our winners.  Third Place: Faith Polivanov, Second Place: Tegan Roorda and First Place: Alyssa Bruuner.

The next category incorporated 7th through 12 graders. We had a wide range of competitors and all were very fun to listen to.  Our fist place winner sang a rendition of Benny and the Jets, sang by Lauren Johnson, that was far beyond what the judges were expecting.

Omaha Musicians Live was proud to have provided a media kit for the winner to help her in her future singing and booking ventures!  Congratuations to all of the winners!!  It was a great experience and I hope I get invited back next year!
