ASB Studios initiative re-launches Paly’s Got Talent

Holden Lee

Students showcased their unique skills and talents at Paly’s Got Talent, hosted by ASB on Thursday from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center. The 11 student performances featured a variety of acts ranging from contemporary dances to mental math, according to Sophomore Class President David Wu.

Junior William Tu, who performed a choreographed dance of “Ditto” by South Korean girl group New Jeans with members of the Palyce Club that practices K-pop dances, said they enjoyed the opportunity to put their moves on display.

“We thought (the talent show) would be a good place to showcase our skills and advertise our club more,” Tu said.

Wu, who organized the event, said he was inspired to re-launch Paly’s talent show after seeing similar shows on TV and wanted to add the event as part of ASB Studios, an initiative which aims to foster interactive experiences for the student body through live events.

“The exciting (talent) shows on TV inspired me to bring this back,” Wu said. “I wanted to bring that same excitement to the Paly community.”

At the end of the show, audience members were invited to vote for their favorite performances of the evening. The first, second and third-place winners took home prizes including an ice-cream machine, waffle machine, and speaker, respectively. Sophomore Ivy Lee won first with her vocal rendition of The Little Mermaid’s “Part of Your World”, Palyce Club’s “Ditto” dance won second and senior Mina Baba took third place with her Chopin piano performance.
