And the 2009 International Idol is...Danielle Petingalo!

International Idol '09 Danielle Petingalo

The scores are in! The International Idol 09’ Vocal Competition Series is completed! Danielle Petingalo of Kincheloe is this year's International Idol!

Week Five went through with three contestants: Corrine Koenemann of Sault Ste. Marie, Payton Mastaw of Sault Ste. Marie, and Danielle Petingalo of Kincheloe. Corrine, Payton, and Danielle were all in close competition with each other. Each managed to have a unique edge to their performance that showed off their personalities well. Their challenge for the fifth week was to perform a song by someone they looked up to that portrayed their best singing and performing skills.

This year Lake Street Studio, owned and operated by Soo Theatre’s own Technical Director, Taylor Brugman, donated three studio time prizes. This year the prizes were: third place $100, second place $200, and first place $500 of studio time at Brugman’s Lake Street Studio in Brimley.

Judges Dennis Brooks and Gentleman George Snider and MC Mark SanAngelo were ecstatic to announce the three winners. Danielle Petingalo took first place, Corrine Koenemann took second place, and Payton Mastaw took third place. The competition was close for the three contestants but, at the end of the night, Danielle Petingalo came through with the highest scores in pitch, timing, presence, interpretation, originality, and quality.

Thanks to everyone for participating in this exciting competition and congratulations to all of the winners!
