Vocals, strings, and dance moves were on full display during the Student Activity Board’s (SAB) ‘Card’s Got Talent’ show in the Miller IT building. A handful of U of L students presented their renditions of song and dance to an engaging crowd of students and a panel of judges featuring Dean of Students James Mardis, SGA President Katie Hayden, and SGA Executive Vice President Angel Okorie.

The performances included a mix of popular songs such as Celine Dion’s “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now” sung by graduate student Jasmine Fondrisi and “Daughters” by John Mayer, sung by contestant Jack Burke while playing on guitar.

Singer, Anvi Tawde wowed the crowd with her rendition of “If I Die Young” on guitar by The Band Perry while Drew Richardson expressed his romantic feelings in an original piece titled “Another Track”.

The event’s emcees, accompanied by the sounds of DJ Deuce, maintained an upbeat and comical environment throughout the event. Contestant, Ciera Bay-asen provided a change in pace with a Tahitian dance to round out the evening of performances.

Anticipation and murmurs from the crowd filled the room as contestants and attendees awaited the judges’ selection for their top three performances of the night. Richardson, Tawde, and Bay-asen proved to impress the judges as they joined the stage to receive plaques for their respective first-, second, and third-place finishes.
