Lauzon crowned as ‘Walleyedol’ champ

The “Emo Walleyedol” singing competition returned to the Emo Walleye Classic on Friday night.

After not being held for several years, contest organizer Maverick Judson, who also acted as emcee for the evening, admitted he wasn’t sure if it would be a go this year, either.

“Three or four days ago, we only had four contestants for the entire competition,” he noted afterwards.

Singing champ

Kayla Lauzon wowed the crowd and judges with her performance of Carrie Underwood’s “Something in the Water” on Friday night to capture the “Emo Walleyedol” crown. Piper Lidkea sang “Bright” by Echosmith to take home the title in the “Minnow” division of the singing competition, which was held at the Emo-La Vallee Arena in conjunction with the Emo Walleye Classic.
