Locals to Battle it Out in Lip Sync Contest at Jeans & Bling
Are you ready to get your bling on? The 7th Annual Jeans & Bling to benefit Hospice of Texarkana is this Saturday, September 24, beginning at 6:30PM at the Texarkana, Texas Convention Center. Once again, I'll be honored to be your emcee for the event.
This fundraising event will feature performances from two world famous ballroom dancers from ABC's Dancing with the Stars TV show. Anna Trebunskaya and Dmitry Chaplin will perform three dances with costume changes. Plus, Chaplin will get the audience on its feet and teach them a few moves.
Once again, musical entertainment will be provided by Texarkana's own Split Decision band. There will also be food, drinks, a silent auction, and a raffle.
This year, Jeans & Bling will present a lip sync battle titled "Sing at the Bling" in which competitors will lip sync to a song of their choice for one to two minutes, complete with special lighting and effects for their performance. The top two winners will be determined as the audience votes with dollars. The top two winners will also receive the signature "Belt" style trophy that is seen on the TV show Lip Sync Battle.
Here's some information about the lip sync contestants.
