Kyrgyzstan: Debate Me Maybe video
Submitted by Rhiannon Butlin on 14 May 2013
Talent Night is always a highlight of IDEA's Youth Forums, with participants and coaches singing, dancing, reading poetry or performing impressions and telling jokes.
This year at the Asia Regional Forum a group of students from Tajikistan rewrote Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe as an unofficial anthem for the event - Debate Me Maybe.
They had everyone present singing along, and enjoying their take on debating. We thought it was just going to be those lucky enough to be at the forum who would get to see their performance, but luckily they recorded a video, so we can share it with you all!
The Asia Youth Forum took place in April 2013 on the shore of Lake Issykkul in Kyrgyzstan. You can find more information about the forum, watch more videos and read reports about the tournament at ayf.idebate.org.
