I have heard from friends in Millennium that Inno had 3 number 1 rankings and Waukee had 2, however I see 6 judges here.....

Are there any more scores people have?

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing all the groups(Aside from Waukee and Johnston, as I needed to be ready to perform in the Ambassadors) during Premiere.

I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY by Johnston's prep group. I am so incredibly sad that I had to miss their varsity, as well as Waukee. I'm a big fan of both of their groups, and being that we don't compete against them, am saddened I might not get to see them.

WSD brought it this year. I have a lot of personal friends in the group and am very proud of how excellent they are. Great vocals and fantastic facials, non-stop great photos from that group. Happiness was very traditional in their design, and very good. Loved the novelty number, great vocals. Super entertaining.

Everyone did a fantastic job. It's not easy having a competition this early in the season, but I thought everyone did absolutely fantastic. I'm pretty sure I have the best job at Premiere. ;)

As a member of the Ambassadors I can say that I did not get to see many groups this saturday due to the fact I was hosting all day! But I could not have been happier with how things worked out. I had the privilege to host Kennedy's 9th grade prep group Chanteurs and I very much enjoyed both their performance and how friendly their students were all day. But getting to the later performances, the only local 4A competitor I was able to sit in on was Happiness and I'm happy to say I chose the right performance to go to, the show had my attention from start to finish and I thought both visuals and vocals were great. Not to mention I have enjoyed Saturday night live's spoof songs for many years and knew right away a little bit of what was to come! It's safe to say that I made it a priority before I headed of to get ready for my performance, to head to the Happiness room to congratulate and compliment the group on their show. I had a blast hosting and helping out with not only Chanteurs but with any group that needed help but I am definitely looking forward to seeing other groups in the area soon as well as how Kennedy's show develops over the season!

One judge was strictly scoring the bands.

My favorites of the day were Johnston and Jefferson. Johnston was only a slight surprise. The vocals were amazing (I liked their sound better than Waukee's personally) and the choreography was really clean. The opener caught my attention and the rest kept my attention. Another thing that made them stand out were the costumes. You guys looked really classy. Jefferson was WAY better than we were last year. They're definitely back. They had some of the best male sound of the day. The ballad was amazing and I liked the closer. I was also impressed with how clean the choreography was. When I last saw WSD the choreo really needed work. I could tell how hard you guys worked. I'm a proud alum!

Thank you to everyone who came out to Premiere yesterday! I saw most of the groups throughout the day and I was simply blown away at the shows everyone was able to produce this early in the season! The day ran the smoothest I think it has in the three years of it's existence, but that's my opinion, especially since there wasn't an hour and a half delay on awards We hope to see you all return next year for what I'm assuming will be another awesome Premiere!

Umm.... Just to clarify, Waukee got Best Vocals, and Johnston got Best Visuals (not what is listed at the top), correct?
