Each of the contestants sang twice Sunday night at the 6th Annual Seattle Pride Idol during a two-competition week, leaving the judges in a conundrum during the sixth night of the competition, presented by T-Mobile.
Seattle Pride Idol, hosted by Olivia LaGarce at Neighbours Nightclub, is judged by resident judges Michael Allen and Jack Mozie, joined by Cherry Tart and Chase Silva. Local performer Michael Cagle also took the stage Sunday night with a performance of his own. LaGarce and co-host Cherry Sur Bête thrilled the audience with their performances and wrangled the judges and the contestants to bring out the best in future star power at the competition.
Ryan Hazy’s renditions of “Paris Angelicus” and “Mock the knife” were good enough for first place and a guaranteed spot in the Pride Idol Finals on June 8 at Neighbours Nightclub.
Hazy will compete against all of the regular contest winners, and the winner of the Wildcard Round. Clayton Coleman’s “Somebody to Love” and “So High” landed him in the Wildcard Round on June 1 at Neighbours Nightclub.
This week is the second of three two-performance weeks. Pride Idol hits the stage at The Lobby Bar in Capitol Hill at 8 p.m. Wednesday, then returns home to Neighbours Nightclub at 8 p.m. Sunday. Additional competitions are scheduled at Out West Bar in West Seattle. Complete event information, including scheduling, video of Hazy and Coleman’s performances and highlights from the entire evening, is available at www.seattlepride.org.
