Greek Week continued Wednesday night with the Lip Sync competition. This year’s Lip Sync theme allowed for each fraternity and sorority to choose a word and perform songs about that word.
The money raised from Lip Sync went to a special philanthropy this year. All of the money raised from admission is going to be donated to Ovarian Cancer Awareness. This will be done in honor of Bethany Scott, who is a member of Alpha Omicron Pi. This philanthropy was very personal for the sororities and fraternities, and each group showed their support for Bethany during their performance.
Sigma Alpha started the competition off with the sorority division. The ladies gave a performance featuring country songs that used the word “red.” This included songs like “Redneck Girl,” “Red High Heels,” and Taylor Swift’s latest hit, “Red.”
Alpha Delta Pi gave a pageant-themed performance focused around the word “diamonds.” This gave them the chance to show their ADPI pride, since diamonds are a symbol of the sorority. They performed to songs like “Diamonds are Forever” and “Shine Bright like a Diamond”.
The ladies of Chi Omega took the stage next with a routine centered around candy. In their performance, Willy Wonka took the stage with some exciting dances to songs like “Candy Girl,” “Lollipop,” and “Candy Shop.”
Gamma Kappa Pi followed Chi Omega with a train-themed performance. They showed off their dance moves to songs that included “Love Train,” “Locomotion,” and “Don’t Stop Believing.”
Zeta Tau Alpha performed an upbeat routine that featured songs using the word “move.” They showed off their dance skills to songs like “Bust a Move,” “Moves like Jagger,” and “The Way You Move.”
Rounding off the sorority division were the ladies of Alpha Omicron Pi. They performed a routine that showcased songs featuring the word “time.” They led the audience through their favorite AOPI memories using songs like “Time of my Life,” “Turn Back Time,” and “Old Time Rock & Roll.”
The fraternities also performed, with the brothers of Pi Kappa Alpha starting off the fraternity division with a theme centering around the word “fly.” They performed to songs like “Stay Fly” and “I Believe I Can Fly.”
Alpha Tau Omega followed with the word “bad.” Their routine included songs like “Bad Boys” and “Bad to the Bone.” Sigma Chi gave a performance that featured songs with the word “love.” Their songs included “What is Love,” “Crazy in Love,” and “Love Shack.”
The performances kept going with the brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. They gave a comedic performance featuring the word “crazy.” They showcased their dance moves with songs that included “Get Crazy,” “Call Me Maybe,” and “Womanizer.”
The boys from Kappa Alpha Order performed next with a talk-show theme featuring songs that used the word “heart.” Some of their song choices included “My Heart’s a Stereo” and “Heartless.”
The gentlemen from Alpha Gamma Rho gave the final performance of the night with a routine that featured the word “girl.” Their song list included “American Girl,” “Suntan City,” and “Sorority Girl.”
The winners of the fraternity division were the brothers of Sigma Chi, and Sigma Alpha Epsilon took home second place. Alpha Omicron Pi won first place for the sorority division, and Chi Omega was awarded second place.
