Three predictions on this thread. 9 down votes between them. Dang, you people are salty.



I can't wait to see these guys battle it out! I'm looking at Xavier to stand up and kick some butt!

My Predictions:
GC: Waukee (BV,BC)
1RU: Johnston
2RU: Xavier (BB)
3RU: IC High
4RU: Kennedy
5RU: Jefferson

I have thought long and hard about this. A lot of everyone's thoughts have been great to look at, but I think that this could be a very close competition.

Not gonna lie, Xavier looked really good at their preview show. And I heard Kennedy has stepped it up as well. This should be a heck of a competition, and I'll update my predictions based on preview shows and what I've heard.
GC: Waukee (BV,BB,BC)
1RU: Xavier
2RU: Jefferson
3RU: City High
4RU: Kennedy
5RU: Johnston
For prep, Protege looks to be very strong once again, but Ovation could also take 1st for prep.



I think that it is possible for Xavier to steal Best Ballad. We have a reputation for great genuine ballads and I hope that swings in our favor again this year.

Honestly I have no clue how this competition is going to go. I can see the placements going so many different ways here cause I feel groups are gonna fair against each other a whole lot differently this year than they did last year. I'll still take a swing at predictions though cause who doesn't like some blind, preseason predictions??

GC: Waukee (BV, BC)
1RU: Johnston
2RU: Jefferson
3RU: Kennedy
4RU: Xavier
5RU: City High (BB)
6RU: Norwalk

I can also see Xavier and Kennedy switching spots.

After seeing Jefferson's preview show, I must say that Jefferson's guys this year are absolutely amazing! Let's get some other way too early predictions in here!

GC- Waukee
2nd- Johnston
3rd- Iowa City
4th- Xavier
5th- Kennedy
6th- Jefferson

This will be the most "up for grabs" competition in my opinion. All these groups are consistently on point. Can't wait to see what happens

QUOTE (Jorge @ Dec 12 2014, 07:59 PM) *


I bet the same could be said for ANY of the groups attending this competition. Fall previews are just that... previews of what is to come. Held normally in November/December a good chunk of time BEFORE the most crucial rehearsal hours that lead up to competitions. Those weeks before competition season shows change, choreography really starts to come together, vocals become more about artistry rather than just making sure everyone has their part down, and the band goes from zero to hero. Costumes, crew, props, are all added and make a world of difference. I would not count Kennedy out... especially because supposedly that is the school you are a fan of.


And also, yes I understand how fall previews work, I've been around show choir for a while. I didn't say that their show at that moment wouldn't put them in the running for this competition, but rather what I meant was that based upon their preview, I did not see the potential to improve to the point of competing with groups such as Waukee and Xavier and City High. And just because Kennedy is my favorite group does not mean I have to be unrealistic with my expectations this year for them, I'm simply stating what I believe to be true, and that does not include bias just because I like them more.

I guess I'm just a little more critical of my favorite group after they didn't win last year for the first time in a few years
