In the hot scorching heat, six Fresno City College students battled each other by performing a two – minute rendition of a Beyonce song. The winner, Wes Maldonado, gave a high octane performance of “Déjà vu” and won two tickets to the Beyonce concert on August 28, 2007 at the Save Mart Center. The runner up, Brianna Wingfield, won Beyonce’s newest CD, “B’day”.

According to Paul Torres who emceed the event, the College Activities office received two tickets to the singer’s concert and decided that having students impersonate Beyonce would be a creative.

Competitors sang songs such as; “Irreplaceable,” “Déjà Vu,” “Crazy in Love,” “Say my Name,” and “Get me bodied.” The audience was energetic and ready to be entertained.

“I was nervous, especially performing in front of all these people,” Said FCC student Evelyn Parker who closed the show with “Get me bodied.” Parker said she did not yet have tickets to Tuesday’s concert, but planned to be at the Save Mart Center anyways.

The winner of the contest, Maldonado, said he was “nervous and felt like puking” just minutes after his performance. A huge Beyonce fan, Maldonado said he planned on taking a friend. “I’m a Beyonce fan, especially in Dreamgirls, she was beautiful,” said Maldonado
