It's Olivia's turn. She takes way too long to get started, and is only about three words into her first "joke" when Laurel hollers, "Olivia! Speak up!" Yikes. Not a good beginning. Olivia recovers and says (more loudly), "Being a comedian is much harder than it looks. I mean, really, people look at me and laugh!" That actually gets a response, which she lets run all the way out before resuming. She makes fun of Anjay for smiling all the time, and says she could make jokes about Greg and Blaine. "But look at them! They are the jokes!" That's my new recapping philosophy, right there. Look at the show, that's the joke. Goodnight, everybody. Still, people seem to love Olivia's performance, and Sophia interviews that Olivia was really brave, and really funny. Sophia says it like she's falling asleep, though, so I don't know how sincere that is.
Next up is Kennedy, who starts out by donning a feathered mask and feathered boa and giggling at how hilarious she looks. She does about four lines of "rap," then rips off her outer jacket and goes into dance routine that even Sophia laughs at. Indeed, Kennedy does seem to be accomplishing what she set out to do. Lots of shots of Savannah enjoying the performance. I did appreciate all of the audience reaction shots during this bit, because it meant having to watch that much less Kennedy. After she's done, Markelle is just about ready to wrap things up when Savannah raises her hand. "I don't have a talent, I just have an announcement," she says, standing up and going to the stage. Everyone looks really nervous, and Savannah stretches out the moment for as long as she can before announcing that she's decided to stay. Biggest cheer of the whole talent show. Wow, that was so much easier than practicing and performing something!
I don't even know what day it is now, but Kennedy and Savannah are both in different clothes as the former, holding a violin and bow, thanks Savannah for staying. They agree that it's good to have somebody there from their home state. Because if all the kids from Georgia get together, it's going to be overwhelming.
