When our kids were small, we got together with several other families to put on our own talent show. Each child chose something they wanted to "perform" and had about five or so minutes to do it. We had kids doing things like bike tricks, reading a book, karate, balance beam, magic tricks, and hula hooping. It was great fun for all the kids. We were sure to video tape them, and have had fun watching it played back after several years!
