Willamette's Got Talent competition showcases students' diverse skills

Nathaniel Wheeler ’12 won the Willamette’s Got Talent competition last year because of his mistakes.

As one of the jugglers in Jugglypuff, he took off a piece of clothing every time he dropped an object.

Luckily, he was still half dressed when he claimed the $200 prize.

On March 2, Wheeler is hosting the fourth annual Willamette’s Got Talent competition, beginning at 8 p.m. in Smith Auditorium. Free to attend, the competition will feature 15 performers demonstrating their abilities in everything from singing to dancing.

“It’s a great showcase of all the things you didn’t know your fellow students could do,” Wheeler says.

For the first time, audience goers will have the ability to vote for their favorite entertainer through text messages.

“Anything could happen,” Wheeler says. “I hope people will leave feeling entertained and impressed by their fellow students.”
