Members of the greek community on campus performed various skills in a Union Ballroom that was filled to capacity last night during the Greeks Got Talent competition. In addition to the talent portion there was also a spirit competition, and homecoming pairings for 2013 were announced.
“I thought it was extremely successful,” said Lizzi Petite, member of Kappa Delta, who led the event, and sophomore in human resources. “We had a couple of technical difficulties, but it was still a lot of fun.”
The different greek chapters were split into various teams for Greek Week, represented by the colors lavender, purple, light grey, dark grey, white and black. These teams had members sign up for acts to perform in the talent show. Members who didn’t perform showed their support by clapping and cheering.
The first act consisted of a Whitney Houston cover performed by girls dressed in black leather jackets and afro wigs. This was the first of many singing acts, in which performers either sang to a track or with guitar accompaniment. One singing group consisted of Tyler Johnson, member of Delta Upsilon and junior in management, Ellen Collingwood, member of Chi Omega and sophomore in advertising and public relations, and Devin Rudicel, member of Delta Upsilon and freshman in public relations. The trio played a mash-up of their favorite break-up songs. They placed second in the talent competition.
“It was a lot of fun,” Johnson said. “We got to showcase our abilities and had the greek community hear our talent for the first time.”
