Thirteen high school-age performers showed their vocal talents last Friday, Jan. 31, in the second round of the 11th annual Wildcat Idol competition.

A vote by the audience of parents, students and community members sent three groups—soloists Sydnee Springer-Simon and Wilkins Melgaard and duo Madelynn Esteb and Emilia Glaser.

Esteb and Glazer received the most votes in the final round of three, and were praised by a judging committee that included several teachers, Valley artist Liam Wright, and Matt Bishop, lead singer of Hey Marseilles.
