Third round of West Lib Idol bursting with love songs

By Emily Salvatori, Contributing Writer

The third night of West Lib Idol was held tonight, Feb. 15, at 7 p.m. The theme of the night was Valentine’s Day. However, that did not necessarily mean love, and some people sang about heartbreak and breakups.

The judges of the night were Morgan Wagner, Alek Thibodeaux, Marcella Snyder, and Scott Cook. The judges chose one performer and the audience voted on the other three to move onto the competition next week. The four performers who will move onto next week’s competition are Abby Reeves, Emilie Wesney, Hannah Hlad, and Natalino “Natto” de Soares.

 Yale Hughes could not compete because of baseball, so Ellis Randall was brought back since he was next to be saved in the previous week’s competition.

The performers and the songs they sang are as follows:

 Reeves sang “Irreplaceable” by Beyoncé; Cody Waggoner sang “Say You Won’t Let Go” by James Arthur; Ellis Randall sang “Come and  See Me” by PARTYNEXTDOOR; Sabrina Krouf sang a mashup of an Arab song which translates to “You’re Still on my Mind” and “All of Me” by John Legend; Brooke Dorsey sang “Undo It” by Carrie Underwood; Hlad sang Haley Reinhart’s version of the song “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley; Wesney sang “Over You” by Miranda Lambert; Natto sang “Let Her Go” by Passenger.

Audience members were encouraged to participate again by tweeting pictures with the West Lib Idol’s Snapchat filter, and by tweeting their best pickup lines at the West Lib Idol Twitter page.

Next week is the fourth and final week of West Liberty Idol. If you missed tonight’s performances you can check out the Trumpet’s live streams on Twitter and Facebook.
