Yes!! I'm having issues.

We bought it and it literally paused after every 4 seconds and then 5 seconds of waiting. So basically a 30 minute group was an hour group.

A lot of great groups have performed so far, including 3 of a lot of people's top predictions. How do people think things have gone? I haven't been able to watch the stream today.

Fabulous groups. I think the most surprising for me was ALA--impressive show all around. Twinsburg had flawless choreography. Hastings sang well. Mt. Zion was really good as well.

I currently have it:
Mt. Zion
