On Friday, February 5th, Pallotti hosted it’s third annual lip sync battle and the competition was equally fierce and hilarious. This fundraiser is to help support Pallotti’s music program.
The lip sync battle is a competition between the school’s faculty, where they put on a performance lip-syncing to popular songs. The winners win bragging rights for the year and a framed certificate recognizing their win.
This year the competition was hosted by seniors Kenndey Essex and Lauren McFadden, who also performed as background dancers with Guidance Counselor Rachel Pupiales to Beyonce’s “Love on Top”.
The first runner up for this year’s contest was Chinese teacher Nan Lu with her very creative take on Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s “Ain’t no Mountain High Enough”.
Second runner up was the infamous Rheam team including Jeremy and Kimberly Rheam who are known for there coordinated dances, matching outfits, and outsized school spirit. The secured their second place title with their performance of Justin Beiber’s “Baby”.
The first place prize went to Art teacher Christine Long with her passion-filled performance of her favorite singer Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On”. Not only did she rock the performance with a wig and costume, but there was a fan to blow her lustrous locks, replictaing moments from Titanic.
Other performers included The Douville family, Lauren and Patricia; the Higby family, Karen and Emily; Marshall Lancaster, Sr. Karen and her entourage, and Sandra Bock.
Nico Iampieri, head of the band, was very grateful for all the support and volunteers that went into this year’s performance.
Many students said that the ticket prices jumped up from the previous years, this year the cost of admissions included five dollars for students and eight dollars for outside guest.
