Jesse Sykes wins Weber's Got Talent

Students and community members gathered in the Shepherd Union Building ballrooms Friday night to see the best talent Weber State University had to offer.

The Weber’s Got Talent show hosted acts including singing and other musical performances, dance performances, stunt whipping and parkour.

Jackie Tohn, a top-10 finalist in Season 8 of American Idol, was the master of ceremonies at the event. She also announced the student body government election results.

Three WSU professors comprised a panel of judges, and students in the audience used remote voting devices to help decide the winner.

Jesse Sykes won the competition a hip-hop dance routine, and was awarded $500 for his victory.
