Then, at 7 p.m., log back onto the website to watch a final live lip-sync battle, hosted by islander Steffon Moody, that will decide the winner among the two top vote-getters. The annual contest, in the past, has always been a live show, but this year’s video presentation, ably filmed by islander West McLean, might be even more fun. All proceeds will go to support the work of Vashon’s local radio station, KVSH 101.9 and Voice of Vashon’s emergency alert system.
