Placing second was "The Unoriginals 2.0," a quartet that harmonized to Billy Joel’s “Longest Time” and “This is the Moment” from Jekyll and Hyde. Team members are Josh Getto, a senior in industrial engineering; Steve DeWitte, a junior in civil engineering; and Kyle Hoos and Colin Smith, both juniors in aeronautical and astronautical engineering. Josh is the lone returning member from last year’s winning team, "The Unoriginals."

Placing third was Michelle Schutter, a senior in environmental and ecological engineering, who sang "Gravity," by Sara Bareilles. Michelle has been singing since she was six years old.

In all, eight acts competed in the annual competition.
