Talent turned out in numbers for
the George Town auditions for Cayman’s Got Talent last week. And a large
audience of family, friends and supporters was on hand as well.
By all accounts, the acts were all well-rehearsed
and varied, including performances on electric guitar, acting, opera and rap.
Stephen Leontsinis won first place,
playing the guitar and singing, with his performance of Maybe Tomorrow by the
Stereophonics. Second-place honours went to Kristina Horacek singing opera
favourite The Habanera from Bizet’s opera Carmen. In third place was Dellan
Myles singing Dynamite by Taio Cruise. Miriam Mascal was fourth with a charming
rendition of Leonard Cojan’s Hallelujah, and Georganne Rankine came in fifth
with her rendition of country favourite Crazy.
Fifteen-year-old Stephen Aleria
came in sixth playing an electric guitar solo to Guns and Roses’ Sweet Child of
Mine. There was a tie among three
contestants bringing them all in as the wild card entries: Evelyn Walsh with a
skit called Cayman Market (based on the concept of Linsted Market), 10-year old
Navaro Pearson with a variety of dancehall moves, and Tanjana Campbell, who
sang an a capella version of His Eye is On the Sparrow.
Overall support for the group of
very talented performers was excellent, according to event organiser, Nolly
