On Friday night, the Wheatley auditorium was packed with spectators enjoying the 11th edition of Tri-M’s Wheatley Idol! During an event that showcased the impressive vocal talent of our students, the evening began with ten competitors, from which three finalists are selected by our “celebrity” judges: Ms. Schwartz, Mr. Schwalm and Mr. McKenna.
This year’s ten competitors were:
Julia Mongelluzzo (accompanied by Laura D’Angelo)
Ally Levy (accompanied by Laura D’Angelo)
Michaela Balboni (accompanied by Justin Vega)
Michelle Porter (accompanied by Amanda Kim)
From these initial competitors, the three finalists selected were: Julia Mongelluzzo, Michaela Balboni and Morgan Misk. Each of these finalists performed an additional song for the audience.
Morgan Misk, Round 2
Julia Mongelluzzo, Round 2 (accompanied by Laura D’Angelo)
Michaela Balboni, Round 2 (accompanied by Justin Vega)
While the final votes were being tabulated, we were dazzled by a performance by last year’s Wheatley Idol, Alex Boubour!
After the audience had a chance to vote, Julia Mongelluzzo was crowned this year’s Wheatley Idol!
