Mitchell High School's recently completed performing arts center fulfilled its purpose, filling with talent Friday night.

In fact, there was so much talent, a clear winner of the Friday Night Live talent competition couldn't be named.

The night concluded with singer/songwriter Jamison Gross and the vocal duet of Sara Roy and Ahlea Callie in a tie for first place. Kayla Armstrong, a dancer, placed second and DJ Xander Morrison placed third.

The show featured students and teachers of the Mitchell School District, boasting a Saturday Night Live theme. Between each talent competitor, skits were performed by the high school's choir students.

More than 400 people attended the event, raising more than $2,000 for the Kernel Choirs to pay for camps, scholarships and other expenses.
