"Mr. Talent" is the ninth episode of Mr. Young overall, as well as the ninth episode of the first season.


Adam convinces Echo to sing in the school talent show without realizing she's a terrible singer.


When no one is willing to sign up for the talent show, Mr. Tater offers a get out of detention free card as incentive to sign up. Because no one is getting detention, except for Derby, Tater starts to make new rules in order to give out detentions. When he sees Ivy texting in the hall, he tells her that there is a new rule against it. To avoid getting detention and having to sign up for the talent show, Ivy tries to use different forms of long distance communication, but Tater bans them all. Echo signs up for the talent show at school and decides to sing, a decision which Adam encourages at first. But when he hears her singing voice, he tries to change her mind without hurting her feelings. Meanwhile, Derby searches for a talent to use in the show.
