All the entertainment under Grandma's Marathon Big Top Tent is phenomenal this year! One performer stands out as a local that has "been places" and has returned to take the stage.  Her name is Sarah Krueger and has the distinction of meeting face to face with Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Jewell.

Sarah Krueger was a student at the University of MN~Duluth when she and 10,000 other hopefuls auditioned for the American Idol show at the Target Center in Minneapolis for Season Six of the show.  Simon said she had control of her voice and the other judges agreed she should move on to the next round.

Sarah is from Eau Claire, WI and when she isn't singing, she is pursuing a career in Education.  She will be performing under the Big Top Tent at Grandma's Marathon this year and is a MUST SEE.

Here is her first audition for the judges, Season Six of American Idol.  "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".

Live musical entertainment is showcased throughout Grandma's Marathon weekend under the Big Top Tent. Performances under the Big Top Tent on Saturday afternoon are open for all ages to enjoy. The Friday and Saturday evening shows under the Big Top Tent are limited to those at least 21 years of age. We hope you can join us!
