Best soloists were Sam and Chloe SOHMER, not Sauner

Some thoughts/moments from seeing some amazing things last night:

1. Waubonsie Valley sprinting back into auditorium, after there day time show, to cheer on Wheaton North! That is truly what show choir should be about. Everyone works so hard and we should all be supporting each other!

2. Sam Sohmer's solo competition solo before finals. I believe it was "Not My Father's Son". Y'all need to hear this kid sing. Beautiful job.

3. Glenwood dance Also a must see! Great job to Heath Gemar on that choreo and the kids for executing so well!

4. Soloists from Waubonsie Valley "Girls in Heels" on "Listen". BEAUTIFUL!

5. The new auditorium at Mt. Zion is great!

6. The quartet who performed before finals was worth admission alone. Great job gentlemen!

7. Also a cool thing that epic showdown between Glenwood and WV for Grand Champ at Mt. Zion. Show choir nerds will know how kind of special that was/is...haha! You have Jeff Gemar who was the old director for Mt. Zion while Heath Gemar (choreographer for Glenwood) and Seth Durbin (director of WV) were in it, and they were being choreographed by Dwight Jordan (choreographer for WV and Mt. Zion)! Just a neat little show choir nerd moment.

Wonderful job everyone who competed last night. You all worked so hard and all of your hard work showed! The audience members were treated to some top notch quality on only the SECOND WEEK OF CONTESTS!

I feel like I also saw something on Twitter about hoverboards on stage? What is going on at MTZ.

What you heard was correct MTZ brought out 6 of them for their performance at Premiere and I must say I was skeptical at first but they were busting out some pretty cool tricks on those things

One must assume they are referring to those handsfree segway things, as we all know that a real hoverboard actually, you know, hovers. Still, very topical and could be a really cool effect onstage. I think it was Glenwood who busted them out.

Thanks, folks, the full results with captions are posted. Middle School results are also posted, notably with Johns Hill besting North Ridge ending the "Redcoats" 3-year unbeaten streak.

Elite energy 7:00

Flight 8:00
Glenwood 8:30
Danville 9:00
Waubonsie 9:30

Every experience I have with Mt. Zion typically has the 1st place prelim placement in the last finals spot, and the 2nd place in the third finals spot.

So I'll take a shot and say it's

1. WV
2. Chatham

...but who knows.

The event has been updated. You can also find the middle school event here: Mt. Zion (Day One).

Note: An updated schedule is posted above. Glenwood is now performing last and some of the times have been adjusted.

This is a pretty killer lineup for the 2nd week of show choir!

GC: Waubonsie Valley--Visuals
1RU: Glenwood--Vocals
2RU: Wheaton North
3RU: Decatur
4RU: Sullivan
5RU: Northrop

Should be a close one. Wheaton North has been on the rise. Glenwood is coming off a great season from last year. WV is the great mystery with a new director. And don't count out Decatur!

I have to say, I am really rooting for Wheaton North. They were amazing last year and I can imagine they're only better this year. I'm hoping for an upset. Grand champion is up for grabs from Waubonsie, Glenwood, and Wheaton North - but my eye would be on Wheaton North.

Good luck everyone!

And we're back to the stupid downvoting for no good reason

This isn't even a prediction!! JD just said he's rooting for a group...some people...dang.

Do not let the Down Voting get to you. If a post doesn't fit the majorities narrative, you can expect down votes. It's ridiculous, but just learn to brush it off and laugh about it. Just assume that anyone down voting you is 40 years old living in their parents basement leading a miserable life.

I find it ironic and hilarious how we all talk about how subjective show choir is and how different one group can be from the next, and how it's really fascinating and in a way brings us all together here. However, as soon as someone throws out a prediction or thought that goes against the popular opinion, they get down-voted because they they're dumb or can't believe why they would think that (this is where the subjectivity comes in). I'm not saying people should stop down-voting, it's bound to happen like Adam said (I'm sure most of them come from those who have never posted but instead just read and browse) and sometimes it can spark some interesting conversation, I just find it ironic when people down-vote for those reasons. Sorry, /endrant
