Last week a friend of mine called and said she was going to be in Laughlin, Nevada for a Talent Quest. She is very into Karaoke. At first I thought...Why would I want to go watch that? Then I found myself excited to take a spontaneous road trip. I grabbed an old friend who was visiting from Iowa (her sister) and I drove to Laughlin. Three exciting nights of Karaoke. After the first hour I thought to myself there is no way I am going to be able to handle Three nights of this. But let me tell you I was Blown Away about how talented these people were. It was amazing and my friend made it into the Semi-Finals - WOW....what a performance everyone put on. And let me just tell you this was the 50 and over group I was seeing. Well...sad to say she did not make it to the finals but we all went to see the final show and it was all age groups. AMAZING people........My favorite performance was by a young guy maybe in his early twenties - he did Michael Jackson - he had the voice, the moves, the clothes.....and the audience went nuts over him and I was so happy when he won first place in his category.
I am so mad because I was so excited about going I forgot my camera - so NO PHOTOS but lots of good memories. There were five of us in all and we met some very nice, amazing people during our stay. There were people from all over competing. And I can say I have a New Found Appreciation for those who are serious about Karaoke.
