Song and dance (and acrobatics) at fourth Langley Has Talent finals

A trio of dancers, nine musical acts and an acrobat have made it through to the final round of Langley Has Talent.

Among the performers advancing from the March 29 semifinal competition are Jet Tangerine and Hugh Barbour, a bouncy and colourful musical duo who kicked off the night with an uptempo performance of Train’s Hey Soul Sister.

Aerial acrobat Alexandra Susheski wowed the crowd with a routine that found her swinging on, in around and through a ring suspended above the stage at Christian Life Assembly.

Our Voice, an original song by Peace of Earth, also impressed the panel of judges — made up of talent agent Jolienne Moore, singer Natasha Zimbaro and event promoter John Donnelly — and got the nod.

Also selected to move on this year are:

Kathleen and Jesse — singers

Joshua Goodman  — rapper

Kaitlin Hartwig — dancer

Michaela Mulder — singer

Paige McLachlan — dancer

Quinn and Tonic — rock band

Rachel Dunn and Colson Kinna — singing/guitar

Sisters Jazmine and Amanda Langset, who won over the crowd with the foot-stompin’ country tune, Better Dig Two by The Band Perry, advanced  through the audience vote.

Final competition takes place at Christian Life Assembly on Saturday, April 12 at 7 p.m.

This time, Moore will be joined at the judges’ table by Leah Emmott, former drummer for the all-girl punk rock band LiveonRelease,  and Langley actor Mike Roberds, best known for his role as Uncle Fester on The New Addams Family.

Tickets are $20 each, available online at langleyhastalent.com or at the Langley Times office, 20258 Fraser Hwy.

Elementary and middle school students in the Langley district will be admitted at no charge if they are accompanied by an adult with a paid ticket. Student + adult tickets must be purchased through the website.

Langley Has Talent is presented in co-operation by the four Rotary Clubs of Langley.
