Washington, CT - As Round Two of the Glenholme Idol competition began on Wednesday, November 16, 2011, no one could foresee what would unfold. In the weeks leading up to this exciting double elimination round, head judge Matt Michels surprised the Glenholme Community by deciding not to impose a theme - instead, he encouraged the performers to challenge themselves, explore the depths of their talents, and bring their very best to the stage.

After addressing the full house, Matt played a video recap of Round One. Then, the eight remaining acts each took their turn in the spotlight. The competition was keen - solo singers, dancers, and duet acts stepped out of their comfort zones to demonstrate their hidden talents, each hoping to be one of the six acts that would continue to Round Three.

However, when the results were tallied, an audience favorite was destined for elimination. Not to be discouraged, the audience began to loudly chant, attempting to save their beloved act. True to the competition's interactive design, the judges ultimately honored the audience's wishes and allowed the act continue to Round Three!

With the surprising results of Round Two, seven acts will now take the stage during a triple elimination round on Thursday, December 1 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Make sure to tune in for more exciting updates after Round Three!
