Thanks for the catch. Apparently Diamond Bar wasn't on the original schedule, so I had to go in and switch some stuff up. It should all be good now, though!

That is not a bad thing... the crowd should do that for groups who are new or got a rough start or whatever to get their confidence up!


It's a bad thing when it's phrased, "(name removed): this is one of the moments where you have to cheer for them even if they suck" ... That's a direct quote from the chat room. It's archived online. Peter you might have pure intentions, but not everyone does. There's no point in beating a dead horse, though. I'm glad several other folks in the chat room recognized it as well and spoke up.

I only started watching at the advanced level. I think some of the other awards were announced outside the performing arts center, so either someone attending or the Burroughs website needs to be updated in order to know results.

Scott and a few others on the chat mentioned the Mens Division was: 1st: Burbank (Music/Show) 2nd: Los Al, but I don't know if they awarded 3rd/4th, so I can't post the full results yet.

Those weren't the only comments, though. There were various comments saying it feels like "Dynamo" has been on stage forever and wanting the show to just be over, coupled with comments about how the crowd should take pity on them and clap, yell, go wild, etc... There were plenty of other ones as well. Folks in the chatroom were making fun of the show. Plain and simple. I could probably go back and directly cite the comments, but I think it was blatantly obvious that fellow show choir fans, students, etc. were being hypercritical of a newer show choir, from a different region, with a different style. Truthfully, I expect more civility and sportsmanship from the show choir community. We should be a positive, supportive, encouraging community. "Honest comments" about pitch are fine as they're somewhat (not really) constructive criticism, but most of the comments were not. So you're either choosing to look at the comments through rose-colored glasses or you missed them.

Anyone know the scoring between Los Al and Burbank? It had to have been very close.

No one was bullying. Just giving honest comments about the show. They had lots of pitch problems.

I thought it was a cute performance. And I actually enjoy "Wings." It's a great song. But with the Notre Dame performance, the comments on the livestream were appalling. It showed a complete lack of understanding of the context of Canadian show choir and non-acceptance of different styles. Considering Mt. Eden had just performed a beautiful set against bullying, it was disheartening seeing cyerbulling in the chat conversation. Especially since several of them are members on here.

So I'll make Tier 1 predictions:

GC: Burbank (musicianship, show design, choreography)
1RU: Los Al (showmanship, costumes, acapella)

Some of the best shows I've seen all year.



I was off by one caption! Best predictions I've made all year lol

Thanks Häakon for the live feed--it was great joining in the excitement from 1,840 miles away!

Why hasn't Bonita Vista moved up to Tier I?
Based on that show, I'd say it's time. They were sharp!

I didn't see the comments, but personally I thought they did a decent job. Acapella first song was kinda unexpected (I was like "are they doing a whole show acapella?"). They had opener, closer, ballad, guys/girls numbers. All basic show choir elements. And for their first time competing in the US probably, definitely impressive. I think they could hang with some of the tier 2 choirs I know.
