What an incredible day! All groups were so much fun, friendly, and kind. The shows were phenomenally prepared and a true joy to watch. RCS just keeps getting better every single year. Thanks to those who were a part of it.

Naperville received 1st from every judge in finals.
I'm thrilled so many people were able to tune in with our live stream. We had people all over the country watching and even places like the United Kingdom and Japan got a piece of the action!
Wow, I didn't see those placements coming. I wasn't there for finals and I was unable to watch the live stream so I guess my limited knowledge of only the daytime performances is what's making me shocked. Was there an obvious difference in daytime and finals performances for some of these groups?

WOW! What a contest! I got to watch every single group that performed today and I am in awe of the talent on that stage. Every group brought something to the table and I'm so glad I got to see everyone. But I have to say... NAPERVILLE NORTH. HOLY MOLY. I wish you guys the best season in the world, you are some of the most talented and passionate human beings I've ever seen on stage. Congrats on your huge win, it was much deserved!
