But 3rd grader Molly Balcer stole the show with her solo rendition of "This is Me" from the Greatest Showman. Not only did Molly lip sync the words, but she signed it American Sign Language. 2nd place was 5th grade's Thriller, and 3rd place was solo act by 8th grader Jimmy Fiorentino's rendition of Hamilton.
The contest was judged by four local judges: Bill Pezza (Raising the Bar), Brianna Curran (Bristol Boro Teen Foundation), Dana Stone (Stepping Stone Dance), and Thomas Kuchler (Music Director at Conwell Egan).
