Cayman shows off its talent

Oscar Calidonio

Semi finals of Cayman’s Got Talent – the local version of the American popular TV talent show – got underway at the Mary Miller Hall in George Town

With an impressive turnout, nearly filling the hall, the first contestant onstage was the highly talented Oscar Calidonio, who sang ‘If I Could Turn Back the Hands of Time.’

Next, Orvin Palacio came onstage to sing the classic song ‘You Raise Me Up’, filling the hall with his strong, yet controlled baritone voice.

Mercita Dunkley, an established singer, came next with ‘Forever,’ a beautiful, yearning love song she has penned herself.

Da Spontanea Dance group, a group of three girls, showed the judges their slick dance moves.

Romero Welcome changed the style of the evening’s musical entertainment with a hard-hitting R&B/Rap-style song.

It was great to see so many singers performing their own material – and Andrianna wowed the audience with ‘Hold the Vibes’ a song she had written herself.

Dressed in the colours of the Cayman Flag, The Cayman Islands Marching Band set up some great drumbeats to back their jazzy music from trumpets, saxophones and flutes.  They were a marching band with a difference, introducing some hot dance moves to the score, and generating some spontaneous applause from the audience to add to the beat.

Other singers included Joshua Barnes, Arron Martinez-Christian, Dellon Myles, Giselle Scott, Christopher Rankine, The Fab Two, Lloydd Barker, Cheyenne Tibbetts, Jamesette Anglin, Georgette Isaac, and Topaz Groves.

The Xcitement Dancers were there too, with their high – energy dance act.

The standard was so high that 15 – over half the contestants – went through to the finals which will also be held at the Mary Miller Hall on 29 October.
