Now how does John Burroughs "Sound Waves" get the Musicianship and Showmanship captions and get 2nd?
It wasn't the case here (it ended up being a typo), but it can happen: as seen here, here, and here (in the middle school division). Of course there is always a bunch of chaos that ensues when it does, but it's explained pretty well in the comments. In fact, in the SoCal example, you commented on it yourself.
Crazy things can (and often do!) happen when it comes to show choir judging! But I guess that's part of the fun of it. Maybe.
