I won't make predictions, because I haven't seen most of the Midwestern groups.. I've seen Waubonsie Valley on Youtube, and they look very impressive.. I can't wait to see them live.. Hopefully, the southern groups (West Jones and Petal) will represent the South well and entertain the judges and crowd.. Petal is very good this year, and I can definitely see them taking home 1st Runner-up or 2nd Runner-up.. As for us, our vocals probably aren't strong enough for us to make Finals, but I'm sure I'll enjoy this competition anyways.. Good luck to everyone competing..
Best of luck to everyone competeing at this competition! Here's a special shout-out to West Jones "Sassy" & "Imagination" and Petal "Soundsations". Both are phenominal groups from the South and I hope they do well here. Regardless of placement, all these have VERY entertaining shows.
