The Road to the Finals
 
Thank you to the almost 300 people that squished into the Marblehead High School Auditorium.
 
You successfully voted ten performers onto the finals and knocked out a dozen pizzas in fifteen minutes, which by the way who's sales all go to the Marblehead Interact Club, matched dollar-for-dollar by our own Rotary Club of Marblehead.
 
There was one thing for sure and that is that Marblehead definitely has talent. Fifteen students performed their hearts out and everyone of them did wonderfully and I was very proud of them all. They not only sounded great, but they all dressed like stars.
 
Unfortunately, five of our fine players will not continue on to the finals. To those five, you should know that it was extremely close and it breaks my heart to give you the news, but we always do an audience vote for the semi-finals and despite how some of us personally felt, it has proved over time to be a very good formula for this event.
 
The finals are only two weeks away and we hope you will all join us whether you are part of the final group or not. This is the sales link for tickets:
 
The ten performers below will go on to the finals at the Cabot Theater in Beverly on March 27. The names that are in bold received the highest number of votes and will be presented with a $500 fourth place award at the end of the night on March 27.

Last night was full of heros that should be re-recognized. Thank you to Henry Christensen, Lucas Rosen, Ramon Rijos and Dick Claveau, our newest friend at the front desk. The interactors were all fabulous as usual and thanks to Jack Attridge for all he does to support them.
 
If anybody has any awesomeness they want to convey, suggestions or notes of any kind, please feel free to reach out to me. We are always striving to make this event the best that it can be, and we stumble and make mistakes, but we're always growing and reaching for the stars (can I say that?). Anyway, we had a great time and if there's a way to make it better, our ears are open. Marblehead's Got Talent is all about the arts and the Rotary Club of Marblehead stands behind all of our students, all of the time and that's why we have this event. Rock on.
