And the Oscar goes to...

Jamzone, the youth group of Shannon Christian Church threw an Oscar party to say goodbye to the Summer holidays and welcome in the school year.

Dressed to impress, hair and make up all done, guys in their suits and girls with sharpened heels decorated with glittering accessories

And for the first time in my life, my eyes...saw...

MARSHA IN A DRESS!!!!

A wide spread of fancy appetisers were prepared by Isorah and myself

cocktail sausages with cucumbers on sticks
a fruit and cheese platter consisting of white cheddar, grapes, watermelon and pineapple
assorted biscuits with chocolate coating and chocolate chips 
mini chocolate chip muffins
mini fairy cupcakes
coke and sprite with a lemon wedge on each glass

Godswill and Tino 
then took the stage and performed two catchy tunes that got the crowd cheering and bopping along. If you're wondering what those golden bottles are in the middle, those are our handcrafted Oscar Awards made by Masha and Tian!

On the red carpet everyone strut their stuff. It was ironic as our entire church hall is red carpetted if that's even a word. The guys got a little...mad with the photos. And without any consent just picked the kicking and screaming me...Well when the camera did flash I had to smile.

The voting polls for the awards were open to vote by either sending a text to the specific number or filling it out on paper.
Our first round of Oscar awards began

Best Dressed Female

Best Dressed Male

 TINO!



Best Hair Female

Our second performer, for the first time stepped on the stage in church, grabbed the microphone and belted out her stunning voice singing to 

Beyonce - Listen

And boy, did our ears listen to her :)
Big up Michelle for showing so much courage! You did a great job :)

To entertain the crowd we played two games.

FIND YOUR CELEBRITY PARTNER
Each person was given a slip of paper with the name of a celebrity. For instance if you got Angelina Jolie, you had to find your Brad Pitt in the crowd. But you're only allowed to ask YES/NO questions.

Then we proceeded with 

CHARADES
The representative would pick a slip of paper with the name of a celebrity and he/she had to act it out and obviously the audience had to guess who.

A time of dancing soon began as the lights began to dim and tunes began to blast through the speakers. Big up to Godknows who was the DJ for the night. And this time, we didn't just dance but we learnt more!

Tino taught us how to dougie
Ruan taught us how to jump dance

It was so hot we actually began to sweat!!

And as the night began to end, we finished up with the remaining awards.
