After the Knoxville Symphony concert on Friday night, my wife and I walked to Market Square. A singing competition called CTE Goes Live was underway on the outdoor stage. CTE stands for Career Technical Education.
A panel of judges was responsible for 90% of the decision. The remaining 10% was determined by having the audience vote via text message. After their individual performances, the female contestants sang “Call Me Maybe” as a group while holding cardboard cutouts of their faces. The same cutouts were distributed to their fans on Market Square.
