Chilly weather did not stop families flocking to Katanning Town Square on Saturday night for Great Southern’s Got Talent. The talent show, organised by the Shire of Katanning and supported by RAC as part of their Reconnect WA initiative, was the finale of a series of events aiming to activate Clive Street. The project has been targeting the busy stretch of Clive Street between Dore Street and Taylor Street. Pop-up spaces and other activities have been held to bring colour, life and energy to the main street and confirm its position as the heart of Katanning. Great Southern’s Got Talent featured a range of acts, from dancers to poets, as performers young and old got into the spirit of the evening. There was a $1500 prize pool over three categories adults (18+), teens (12-18) and kids (under 12). The night was hosted by the Katanning Dramatic Society’s Lesley Balinski who yarned and charmed the audience through the cold weather. Guitarist and singer Tammy Bishop won the adult category with a rendition of Snow Patrol’s Chasing Cars. The teens category was taken out by Mia Hamon and her contemporary dance set to Dean Lewis’ song Waves. The kids category was won by Maddison Fidler and Emma-Jane Forman with their homage to the popular movie musical The World’s Greatest Showman staring Hugh Jackman.
