Delta Phi Epsilon Hosts Annual Lip Sync Dance Contest on Campus

WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J.–Delta Phi Epsilon hosted its annual Lip Sync Dance Contest in support of cystic fibrosis on Wednesday, March 9, at 10 p.m in Pollak Theater.
The venue was nearly brimming at capacity with members of different Greek organizations who were anxious to see what lip sync acts had been put together, but sorority and fraternity members participating in the event were also there. Each organization that was competing was responsible for choreographing a dance performance to go along with a theme.
The performances contained both old and new songs, accompanied by outfits to support the chosen theme.
Alpha Omicron Pi chose a throwback theme that immediately captured the audience’s attention: the evolution of Miley Cyrus. The performers incorporated Hannah Montana classics as well as some more recent Miley jams to the energetic applause of the crowd.
Theta Xi, on the other hand, put together a performance centered around Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” The brothers participating were dressed in all black and lipped to the lyrics sung by Freddie Mercury. Kaylie Mazza of Zeta Tau Alpha said that “Theta stole the show.”
Alpha Xi Delta went with the theme of the seven deadly sins, with signs stating which sin was being portrayed and music to accompany each one. According to Tommy Foye of Sigma Tau Gamma, “AXID may have had ‘xi’ best performance of the night.”
The standout performance of the night was put on by Phi Kappa Psi, whose performers put together a collage of SpongeBob Squarepants songs and immediately became an audience favorite.
After their performance, Rebecca Roth of Alpha Kappa Psi said, “Phi Psi is the obvious winner here.”
Roth was not wrong in her comment.  Phi Kappa Psi finished in first place, chosen by a panel of judges featuring Monmouth students.
The event ended with a performance from Delta Phi Epsilon. The sorority pulled off an amazing performance choreographed by Shannon McGlynn, Lauren Mzarik, and GiAnna Esposito in an attempt to uphold their reputation for phenomenal lip sync dances.
Overall, the event seemed to be a great success–especially to the hosts. At the end of the night, the sisters of Delta Phi Epsilon said, “All of our performances were amazing tonight! Thank you to everyone who participated and donated to our philanthropy.”
