Erie Middle School held its traditional Christmas Lip Sync Battle with over 65 students participating last week. A lot of practice, sweat, and some tears go into these performances, and students did not disappoint.

This year’s student judges were Brayden Morrell, Taylor Robshaw, and Laila Keeling. The 5th and 6th grade top finishers actually both scored perfect 10s, but there is a tiebreaker system in place, which had first place going to Caleb Brown, Walker Wright, Grayson Johnston, Ethan Meier, Noah Berk, Dawson Pool, and Keegan Ryan performing “Party in the USA”. A close second place went to Ava Johnson, Reese Ryan, Lia Milem, Sydney Dornbush, Alyssa Pratt, Peyton Misfeldt, Maddi Weaver, Taytum Jacobs, and Lilly Misfeldt performing “Cruisin for a Bruisin”.

For the 7th & 8th grade portion, first place went to Lauryn Wunderlich, Navonna Lopez, Elley Weidel, Bella Floming, Hailey Ryan, Nevada Wells, Rose Wickes, Makayla Wetzell, Lauren Punke, Jordyn Adams, and Mrs. Jacobs performing “Baby” with Mrs. Jacobs as Justin Bieber. In second place was Cade Huisman and Landon VanDeWostine performing The Happy Hands Club sign language version of “The Rose” from Napoleon Dynamite.

At the end of the performances the 7th grade girls group presented Mrs. Jacobs a gift as she has performed with them each year of the past three lip sync battles and is retiring after this school year.  All of the participating students have a lot to be proud of after a very entertaining afternoon and are looking forward to a great Christmas Break.
