Lip-syncing competition presents prizes to winners


A lip-syncing competition held by the Multicultural Greek Council welcomed students to perform a song in hopes of winning a prize Monday.

Co-chair and sophomore nursing major Shaine Singson said different events were discussed by the council. However, when talks of a lip-syncing competition came up, the council decided to organize the event.

“[Lip-syncing] sounded fun, so we just went with it,” she said.

The event’s multiple performances showcased dance moves, costumes and stage presence. Though the performers were not actually singing the songs, the audience still got into the performances and dancing and sang along with them.

The first-place winner received $50 and a golden microphone to keep as a trophy, second place won $25 and third place won $10.

The audience voted to determine the top three contestants by cheering for each performance. First place went to a group who called themselves “The Zebras.”

Freshman education major Jimmy Cummings, a member of “The Zebras,” said initially the group had some disagreements on which song to perform.

“Eventually I won the battle,” he said. “We went with ‘Call Me Maybe’ because we wanted to appeal to the audience and go all out, and we thought it’d be a fun song to sing.”

Cummings said they had intense practices in order to be well prepared for their final winning performance.

“It worked real well, just practicing in the dorm room then we moved to a bigger space for the more dangerous type of moves,” he said.

Freshman history major Robb Wheeler said at first he was skeptical with doing the competition at all, and the song they chose was unfamiliar to him.

“At first I was like, ‘No I don’t want to lip sync. I hate lip syncing because it’s kind of pointless to me,’” he said. “But eventually it would appeal to the crowd… and it did.”

Even though this was the first year for this event, the Multicultural Greek Council plans for the event to be an annual competition, Singson said.
