Kodiak‘s Got Talent, the annual talent show and fundraiser for the KHS Student Council, will take place on Feb. 8 at 6:00 pm in the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium. 

This year’s KGT will feature seven contestants showing off their singing and other musical talents. 

After auditioning and making the KGT cut in December, KGT performers have been rehearsing over the past six weeks, with each student preparing four different performance pieces for the Kodiak community.

The first round of judging at KGT will be done by the audience, who will pick their top two favorite contestants. The top four contestants with the most votes will advance to the second round, in which three judges will critique each performance and vote on who goes to the next round. 

This year‘s judges are Lacey Harvar, Kaitlyn Meibers and Mariah Blackwell.

This event is completely student run with the help of student council advisors Lindsey Glenn and Elizabeth Bender. “This event is a lot of fun to put on every year. You never know what kind of talent students have. There’s always a surprise in the group of contestants,” 

Micah Fields and Abraham Fields will be the emcees for the event. “We look forward to a fun night to exhibit our exceptional talent to the entire community,” said Micah. 

The KHS Drama Club and Key Club will be working backstage and providing lighting and sound support for the show. 

Cost for the event is $7 for students and $10 for community members. Credit cards will be accepted. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the show starts at 6 p.m. 

“KGT will be better than ever this year with a fantastic line of judges and contestants,” said Abraham Fields.
