The talent at the Variety Show was amazing! From the opening dance number by the ballroom dance team to Samantha Bunderson's piano solo the night was filled with awesome performances. Highlights included amazing vocal solos, musical numbers and a Napolean Dynamite dance performed by the Reusch brothers.
