On Wednesday night the girls were cheering and bursting with energy because they got to meet one of our hosts for the Miss Teenage Canada 2011 show. Luke Bilyk, with his dashing smile, was walking around shaking the young ladies hands. He introduced himself to every girl, making sure he memorized their names and got the pronunciation just right. Continuous cheering and excitement filled our rehearsal room. After he got through the 74 girls, he took some pictures and signed autographs. The other host of the show is Alicia Josipovic; unfortunately she couldn’t make it to the meet and greet with the girls but we are sure they will get along perfectly well on Saturday. Our musical guest for the evening is Danny Fernandes. Here is a little bit of info on them to get you ready for Saturday.
