See you there!
Just an FYI for your predictions: Emmetsburg has a rule where the top 1A/2A choir automatically qualifies for finals. It's a great way to pay homage to the small school groups who put in the time and effort but do not have the population or the money to be a national-level choir.
Is Extravaganza still doing the usual thing where the top six overall scored groups are automatically accepted into finals PLUS a seventh finalist will be added with that finalist being the top scored group from 1A or 2A with the exception being that if the top 1A/2A group is already in the top 6 overall scores then the next highest score regardless of class will be the seventh finalist??
tl;dr - Is there still 7 finalists?
I'm excited to be back for this one! Been a couple years and I've missed it!
Yes, top 6, PLUS top scoring 1A/2A Show Choir! 7 total!
