Announcing the acts for the TwitchCon 2016 Talent Show!
This week on Twitch Weekly, the selected acts for the highly anticipated TwitchCon 2016 Talent Show were revealed!
Each submission for the talent show was reviewed by a panel of Twitch staff with background in performing art. Every audition received was superb, and we wish that we could allow everyone to perform! The selection committee had to make tough choices not only on quality, but also on variety, tone, production, and various other factors that led to a final decision. The final list of acts represent many disciplines of performing art, and we can’t wait to see them take the stage. They are:
PerihelionLivestreams — “Home” on Ukulele
SceneOfActionMusic — “Taste For Blood” Live Music Video
Brynlie — Lyrical Dance to “Cavity” by Hundred Waters (Courtesy of music.twitch.tv)
Ahadify — Harmonica Beatbox
Crowdingout — “The Light”
8bitballroom — “Shim Sham” Lindy Hop Dance
JeffLeach — Stand Up Comedy
Frogthree — Electric Cello
Aditidancedesign — Belly Dance to Sahra Saidi by Gamal Goma and Ah Ya Zein by Roger Abboud (Courtesy of Hollywood Music Center)
Jacksonparodi — Banjo-Kazooie Accordion Medley
The TwitchCon 2016 Talent Show will take place at Kappa Theatre on Friday at 6:30 PST!
Thank you so very much, from the bottom of our hearts, for auditioning to be part of our first-ever TwitchCon Talent Show. As always, with a new initiative, there is a little trepidation and so much hope that the community will love an idea as much as we do.
We are so grateful that you were inspired to participate and affirm what we believed: that performing artists truly shine on Twitch!
