The home-town favorites Spotlight were today crowned the new Queeens of Harmony by winning the 2006 Sweet Adeline competition held in Detroit, Michigan. Members LeAnn Hazlett (lead), Kerry Denino (baritone), Patti Britz (bass), Kendra LaPointe (tenor) dazzled the judges with their three songs "I'm All Bound 'Round With the Mason-Dixon Line", "Beware My Foolish Heart" and "Old Quartet of Mine". Salt, from Sweden, took second honors with the Four Bettys of Illinois placing third.

Winners of the chorus competition are Arizona's Scottsdale Chorus, directed by the highly regarded Lori Lyford, who sang "Make 'Em Laugh ", "Lazy Days", "Swanee", "If You Love Me, Really Love Me" and finished with "Goodbye World, Goodbye".
