Teenagers Steal the Night at The 2014 Battle for the Big O Finale [Video]
You have likely heard by now that The Josh Merritt Band were crowned the champions of the The Battle for the Big O on Saturday night at Diamond Lake's Good Time Theatre. And they were INCREDIBLE!! But a trio of teenagers gave the group (and everyone else) a huge run for their money. They told the crowd they actually had to Google "old country" to find some songs that may be appropriate for this year's Liquid Ninja Big O Music Fest. And, by their performance of Patsy Cline's "Walking After Midnight", I think they may have found just the right one. WATCH!
Congratulations to Kennedy McCollam, Riley Roth and Joe Gatton. The trio (just 14 and 15-years-old) completely won over the crowd and upstaged some very formidable competition. They surprised everyone by finishing the night in 2nd place. And, I can tell you this too. They nearly won the whole thing.
I have a hunch we're going to see Kennedy, Riley and Joe in the 2015 Battle and we can't wait to see what they have in store for us next year!
