wow so many groups can learn from yalls show...i love it...yall deffinantly need to you tube center grove to see where spain park is comin from...we are all caught up in competition so much that we forget what we are doin...putting on a SHOW...look it up if your confused...its not the best diction or arm angles...its energy, story, style...so much more than wat we do...spain park you are somethin to watch out for....i think i feel a change in show choir world and i really like it....ROCK ON SPAIN PARK...by the way great solo in the pepsi commercial...i started packin my stuff after i saw yalls show cause i knew yall had it...dont worry, people will catch on to this style of show choir and yall will be leadin


THANKS!!! this means alot.....personally i also think that many people do forget what the purpose of show choir is. It is to ENTERTAIN..just like you said...to put on a show for the audience and no matter how everyone scores as long as you know that your show was everything a show choir is supposed to be then you were successful

DVDs are already sent out? " border="0" alt="huh.gif" /> I haven't got mine yet. Now I'm super anxious. I ordered the large division DVD so I could watch Spain Park and Mt. Zion over and over again. " border="0" alt="happy.gif" /> I can't wait till it gets here!

hey, does anyone have full results from prelims (points optional)?


If what you are talking about is what I'm thinking about, then the standings should be on here, like page 7-10, somewhere in there...(but it's only AA, tho)... " border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

I want to once again take the time to apologize for all of these comments being made by Tupelo people. I think some of the girls in Soundwave do feel like they are being attacked because of certain comments made but I think since the competition was a week ago we should maybe all just realize that it was just a show choir competition. Although I love show choir we all must accept that things don't always play out the way we want them to and sometimes we must just put these things behind us and accept it as it is. Again, sorry for some behavoir. All of the groups performed really well and I hope that this post will possibly clear up some of the confusing posts that have been in this thread.

Please, try not to be so upset Tupelo. Many of us have told y'all that you did great, and no one has yet said that you didn't belong in finals. You deserved what you got, as did everyone else.

And please, stop thinking that I'm out to get you, because I'm not. I'm just trying to shed a little light on alot of different perspectives. Nothing but love, here.


We all think Tupelo did a great job and deserved to be there, but as Cody said "just trying to shed a little light on alot of different perspectives". Just because one person doesn't agree with what happened, doesn't mean it shouldn't have, and the end result showed that it was the right choice to make (aka Tupelo Women going to finals and STILL beating Homewood).

Should LSU have been in the BCS championship with 2 losses? Logically, no, but they still won, and proved the nay-sayers wrong, and Tupelo's Women's group did just that.

Tupelo Sound Wave, please realize that no one is trying to attack you. Two seperate finals competitions might just be the solution.

Unfortunately, this thread seems to have taken a turn for the worse because yall are being very defensive. It may not be right, but most people will say... yall were good... for a girls group.

The divisions are just so different that its almost unfair to everyone involved. Just please try to quit being so defensive. It is obvious yall are proud of yourselves, which you should be. We know yall got into finals. Congratulations. Obviously yall did well. But please do not assume that someone commenting on the oddness of a women's group making finals is a personal attack.


That's exactly what I've been trying to say, but apparently I've been going about it the wrong way; it seems none of the Tupelo kids are hearing the positive things I've said, just taking every "women's groups" comment extremely personally.

as i recall, i said spain park and mt zion were amazing and that i loved their shows and that albertville was good too...how is that trashing people? and i am praising my two choirs because i know how hard we work. i'm not saying that others are bad. i don't know where you got that from. i was nice my whole post.. your the one trashing us.


The reason I said you indirectly trashed other groups was because you were occusing the 4 other finalists of "making finals because of their name/who their choreographer is." I'm pretty sure you didn't really mean what you were saying, and just said it because you're upset at everyone's reaction to the competition results.

Please, try not to be so upset Tupelo. Many of us have told y'all that you did great, and no one has yet said that you didn't belong in finals. You deserved what you got, as did everyone else.

And please, stop thinking that I'm out to get you, because I'm not. I'm just trying to shed a little light on alot of different perspectives. Nothing but love, here.

Indeed, SoundWave made finals; they had a very entertaining performance, especially when compared to other women's groups I've seen. Y'all are to be commended for making finals twice in the same season, at two pretty tough competitions. It's not that I'm trying to look down on you or your group, or saying that you don't belong in finals. I just don't think that it's fair, that's all.

As I said before, I just think it's too hard to judge groups against one another when there are such obvious differences between them. Often times, you'll see judges try to compensate for that concept by boosting/padding their scores little by little. Not saying this happened with SoundWave, but it's happened before.

It'd be great if a few schools around here started to have men's choirs in addition to women's and mixed. It would create much more complexity and competitiveness in the Single-Gender division. Then, there might be just reason to hold two separate finals competitions.

If there were two separate finals competitions, the layout could be:
*one for Single-Gender (maybe the top two or three Single-Gender groups in their own finals, with their own captions), and
*one for mixed (top four to six groups in their own finals, with their own captions).

Though I know that's far out of the ordinary, it's also becoming increasingly obvious that a change may soon be needed. show choir, at it's core, is about evolution, adaptation, and the ability to change. Each year, you must move with the times, trends, and vocal concepts, or simply be left behind. Maybe we soon will see some changes in the formats of competitions to accomodate something of this stature. Perhaps not to this dramatic of an extent, though.

Hopefully I can try thsi one day, as a director, with my own competition. Who knows.


Actually it is not out of the ordinary... It is done quite often in the Midwest, including at the North Central competition we recently attended...
