Mountlake Terrace High School student Flynn Thomas took first place Wednesday night at the district-wide talent show finals.
The event comes after each of the four local high schools held their own talent shows. Top acts from each school competed Wednesday night at the Mountlake Terrace Theater in a district-wide final round.
Thomas’s act involved taking three members from the audience and having them randomly scribble on a piece of paper while Thomas was not looking. Then he cued some music, turned around and transformed those scribbles into original art pieces. Each scribbling volunteer got to take their corresponding art piece home.
Second and third places both went to acts from Lynnwood High School. Katie Phippen took second for her Irish dancing routine. Funk band Phat Phunk took third for their rendition of Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk.”
Other acts from Mountlake Terrace were a hip hop dance by Reyanna Princesa and a vocal solo by Abbie Apana.
