Absolutely ANYONE CAN TAKE IT. If you were to ask anyone that has been in
the competition (whether it be a contestant or student assistant), they
will tell you that this is by far one of the most talented groups to ever
compete against each other. It's the most exciting show we've had in a

HOSTS from our school- our seniors Alex De Los Reyes '13 and Kylah Gonzalez

Honestly, if you consider yourself someone who appreciates music, whether
it be casually or avidly, THIS IS THE SHOW FOR YOU.
In the words of Ms. Aronson (the producer), "You should all be here. The absolute only semi-valid reason for you to miss [this show] would be if you're hooked up to an IV in the hospital."

myself (Gina). T-shirts and Sweatpants will also be sold with the Englewood
Idol logo on it.
