Up for grabs were not only the bragging rights, but also $1,000 and 40% of the door.

Hosted by Brita Filter, the evening was chock full of a diverse array of talents from live singing Amy Winehouse wannabes to amateur drag queens getting up in the gig for the first time.

While the audience cheered and roared after each performances, the judges table would have the final say. In the end, Inita D from Cheer New York won the grand prize with her high-flying cheerleading medley.
