It was a scene straight out of "Glee": Hesperia's three comprehensive high schools faced off Friday night in an all-singing, all-dancing head-to-head competition.


The "Call Backs" competition brought together past talent show winners from Hesperia High School, Oak Hills High School and Sultana High School on Oak Hills High's stage. The schools competed in dancing, soloist, instrumental and class-based competitions.


The Bulldogs' 1,364-capacity auditorium was filled to capacity Friday night, with boisterous supporters of each school in the crowd.


The Oak Hills Class of 2012 performed under the black lights during the dance competition, visible only by the glow necklaces used to turn the dancers into glowing stick figures. Other dance entries included a Star Wars-inspired performance by the Hesperia Class of 2012 -- and everyone seemed to work in part of Ke$ha's "Tik Tok" into their dance medleys.


At times, the crowds' enthusiasm got the better of them, with even some of the most popular acts of the evening being greeted with boos by rival schools when they ended.


"I know we're all here to support our schools," the mistress of ceremonies said between dance acts, "But keep the cheers positive, please."


The "Call Backs" event was the first of what organizers planned as an annual competition.
