Tantalize 2012 was a great show. In fact (as we sit in the darkness going over what we’ve seen so far) – we’ve seen some amazing talent up on the stage tonight. But this is a competition, and every competition must have winners.
Here come the judges’ verdict:
Coming in second: Shehan Ekanayake

All in all? Not entirely unexpected. Each an every one of these performers did their level best and entertained the audience very, very well. Personally, we feel the judges make some pretty fair decisions. It’s also 12 am, so here’s a final batch of photos to round things off. Here’s to a job well done to the organizers and the talented compere who directed the show today.
This is Readme, over and out!
