Congratulations to ALL of our May 19th SEMIFINALISTS!

May 20, 2006 | Leave a Comment

The May 19th semifinal was the smallest event so far, featuring just 6 very talented young vocalists! Five girls and one guy entertained the crowd at LRC in Northwest Houston.

The SEMIFINAL continued the format of BOTH live audience AND professional judges scoring, each counting for 50% of each contestants’ score. At the end of the event, the performers received encouragement and constructive words by the professional judges, Lynn Jordan, Chris Ortiz and Jesse Fernandez.

Elkins High School sophomore Jessica Ferguson, won first place and $500, also securing her spot in the 2007 FINAL competition! Harry Perrin, a graduating senior from Klein Collins won second place and $300, in his last (no, really, this time) appearance in YVOH. Good luck as you continue to expand your education and pursue your dreams, Harry! Sophia Buitrago, the junior from Klein Forest, added another $200 to her winnings, securing third place.

The next semifinal is September 15th, and (as always) is open to ANYONE who wants to compete! Next year’s FINALS will be in early May, meaning we will have seven more opportunities for all old and new contestants to give it a go! Click here to read more about this exciting evening!
