AWG Presents the 4th Annual DMC Network Ovation Talent Search / by Devon Padgett

For the fourth year in a row, AWG DMC produced the annual DMC Network Ovation Talent Search and IMEX Afterparty. The highlight video can be seen here:

This year the event was held at Light Nightclub and featured nine talented performers starting with Mike Lyon's ode to the iconic crooners of Vegas past with "Lady is a Tramp". Kate Schneider followed Mike up with her soulful rendition of "Last Dance" with Tim Pappalardo dropping some Lonestar on the Audience with "Amazing".

Pechha Wallach then stormed the stage with her androgynous half-male half-female costume as she sung the Human League's 1980's classic "Don't you want me Baby?" followed by Brian Carraher's original song IMEX Blues which can be seen on our video channel at

Holly Mechsner then gave the ladies in the crowd some candid advice with her rendition of Carrie Underwood's classic "Before He Cheats" followed by Eric Nell and his afro wig bringing down the house with James Brown's "I Feel Good" 

Talent Search winner Alison Watson then took the stage and sang Elle King's X's and O's which won both the crowd and the judges over with her high energy and range. Shonna Nitzel rounded out the performers with her heartfelt version of "Who's Loving You" bringing the live portion of the show to a close. 

"We would really like to thank all the performers, sponsors and DMC Network Partners for their support and participation. Without them this show would not be possible," remarked AWG President Kellie Hanley "It was such a fun evening and all of the performers really brought their "A" game."
