School talent shows have long been the perfect spots for gifted and not-so-gifted students to showcase what they can do. I love attending them more than participating in them. The reason is simple, I simply don’t feel that I’m good enough to at least make a dent in the competition. For most of us, we are a mixture of many things, talent-wise that is.
This means that there are a few things that we can do okay on, but not good enough as to make a career out of it. I used to listen to records of the most famous artists like Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett, and so on. I was always amazed at how seemingly normal people could do something that most of the population in the world couldn’t.
I mean, how did they get so good at singing? I figured out that I must have been genetics or something. Even if you grew up with artistic parents, what are the chances of being very good at something like singing? I had a couple of friends that were kind of good at talent shows. One of them was a good singer and the other one was a very good dancer.
I would always encourage them to take part in those shows. They at times asked me to perform with them, but because I was not good at either of those activities, I never did. Now that I remember, there was this girl that was a very good ventriloquist, but after she got bullied a little after taking part in one competition, she decided to fly off the radar for a while.
The friend who I had that was a dancer, competed in every talent show that our school had. He was very talented and would always end up in the top-three. He mainly danced hip-hop, but could also dance to other types of music. The last year he competed as a DJ, and he was very good at it. It turned out that he had been ‘DJing’ for quite a while now, but no one in our class really knew until that day came.
I thought I had seen it all as far as talent shows are concerned. That is until I found the next video. The first thing you will see is a group of girls in very weird costumes. Nothing seems to be out of the ordinary until they start to move. When they do, they create the coolest optical illusion you will ever see!
