Springs Idol went intergalactic this year with an introduction that was truly out-of-this-world! The talent show, hosted and coached by Ms. Capatosto and Mrs. Reiner, featured 16 acts ranging from soloists, dance routines, and a piano player!

First Place went to Lilia Schaefer singing "Young and Beautiful" by Lana Del Rey. Second place went to Sophia Yardley singing Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On," and third place went to Daniel Piver singing Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror."

This year's judges were Board of Education President Liz Mendelman, Assistant Principal Ms. Panagiosoulis, and Pupil Personnel Director Mrs. DeLalio. Springs Idol, originally created by Mrs. Branche and Mrs. Garsetti, was inspired by the hit TV show, "American Idol," which made judge Simon Cowell famous and launched the careers of Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Jordin Sparks. Proceeds from Springs Idol are being donated to the Anna Lytton Foundation for the Arts and the Springs School P.T.A.
