All of the finalists in the arena were truly amazing. Pekin was great, and I'm a little surprised with their placement, but everyone in the top 6 was so good that any of them being in 6th isn't ideal- very tough finals competition! Edgewood (OH) had amazing vocals and their show was one of the most fun to watch overall, very catchy tunes. 2nd place- 4th place would have been the hardest to place for me if I was judging. Edgewood (IN) and DeKalb were incredible! Cabell Midland was also great, and had some beautiful costumes. Loveland By Request, during finals, gave one of the best show choir performances I have ever seen. The choreography was flawless, and the energy was unstoppable. The closer blew me away in finals. I can say without a doubt, with no bias, Loveland deserved to sweep this one. Bravo. Unfortunately I couldn't stick around for the Fairfield Choraliers because I wanted to get home to Columbus before the storm.
Another Crystal Classic in the books. What a great day of music!
