On Friday night, the Wheatley auditorium was packed with spectators enjoying the 12th edition of Tri-M’s Wheatley Idol! Hosted by the talented Lianna Golden and Justin Vega, the evening showcased the impressive vocal talent of our students! From the ten initial competitors, three finalists were selected by our “celebrity” judges: Ms. Walbroehl, Mr. Dunn and Mr. Wasserman. These three finalists performed another song and the winner was selected by audience vote.
This year’s ten competitors were:
Kaya Amin (9th Grade)
Sarah Amselem (9th Grade)
Hallie ArbitalJacoby (11th Grade)
Kaileigh Fiorillo (8th Grade)
Grace McPhillips (10th Grade)
Kavina Amin (9th Grade)
Brittany Haber (12th Grade)
Michaela Balboni (11th Grade)
Ally Levy (accompanied by Laura D’Angelo) (both 12th Grade)
Lauren Levine (12th Grade)
From these ten initial competitors, the three finalists selected were: Kaileigh Fiorillo, Grace McPhillips and Brittany Haber! Each of these finalists performed another song for the audience.
Grace McPhillips, Round 2
Brittany Haber (Round 2)
Kaileigh Fiorillo (Round 2)
After these three performances, the audience voted. While the votes were being tallied, Lianna and Justin entertained the crowd:
When the vote count came in, Kaileigh Fiorillo was declared the winner of Wheatley Idol XII! She dazzled the audience with one more performance!
Thank you to our Tri-M students and our Tri-M Advisor (Angela Luftig) for all of their work putting together this wonderful evening!
