Wonderful Talent Show

After many months of nervous auditions, painstaking practise and many musical play-dates, we finally reached the finale of the annual talent competition Sanlitun’s Got Talent. This year’s final lineup was extremely varied and well represented by both Key Stages.

This year it was decided that the entire show should be given by the children, and it was Megan Chen and Amy Jiang stepped up as the compares for the event, showing extreme confidence, stage presence and at times, cutting humor! 

First up, year 6 girls Manon and Malia gave us a spectacular gymnastic dance which had many of us gasping in amazement at their daring flips and twists. Following on from that was Cherry Lau, who blew us away with her beautiful piano playing.

Next up, a truly captivating rendition of Space Oddity performed by year 6 boys Edgar and Sora. Year 2 girls Thea and Olivia brought many an audience member to tears with a gorgeous song and dance routine and no one could of prepared us for the flamboyant, energetic dancing of Jenny Xu. Next was our first band afternoon, Drumbeat, who played us a very creative arrangement of Adele’s Rolling in the deep. Kaila Yilmaz showed us all what a fantastic voice she has when she sung This girl is on Fire by Alicia Keys. To close the show we were transport back to the 1980s with a fantastic rendition of The Final Countdown by Year 6 glam-rockers, Burning Cheese. 

The judges were left with the unenviable decision of picking a winner, but in the end they all unanimously selected Cherry, whose magical piano playing begun what turned out to be an afternoon rich with young talent. The show was hugely rewarding for the children who had all worked incredibly hard on their respective routines and who had shown their fellow pupils, teachers and parents what wonderfully talented children we have in our school...Now it’s time to start practicing for next year!
