Many elementary kids are upset because they failed to pass the talent show auditions this past April 6th. They were cut off because either they weren’t prepared or because the nerves wouldn’t let them showcase their best.

The elementary kids that auditioned had 2 minutes each to do their performances. There was a total of 145 auditions, but not all of them were successful and many of the students felt disappointed.

“The reason (some of) the singers did not pass is because they didn’t chose the adequate tones for their songs and they are not able to present their ideal voices,” said Andrea Jaramillo,  one of the talent show organizers.

This is one of the reasons the talent show organizers gave when asked why there were so many kids that were not able to pass the auditions. Another reason is that some kids are more committed than others and they are also not well prepared for the auditions which is seen during the presentations.

“I think it’s not okay for a talent show in elementary to be kind of a like a test, telling the kids that they are not good enough. This has such a big impact on them so I personally think it is really exclusive. It should’ve been more inclusive for everyone,” said Andrea Fernandez, 11th grade student.

People are extremely mad that they are not accepting kids at such young ages and making them feel insecure of their talents. High school kids look back at the time they auditioned for the talent show and recall how everyone was accepted.

“My little sister auditioned to sing in the talent show. She told me that when she wasn’t accepted she felt extremely sad and disappointed that she cried in the hallway,” said Jeronimo Arrubla, 9th grade student.

Many siblings of kids that haven’t been accepted have a strong opinion that is really unfair what they are doing to kids that are so young age and giving them that feeling that they don’t have talent. Others felt like they may not fit the theme. 

“I think that having a specific theme there will be a lot of kids that wouldn’t want to participate so for me the theme should be free and something that is open to what kids want. Its okay if they want to sing or dance so in my opinion there shouldn’t be a restrictive theme,” said Adriana Valencia, TCS parent.
