Final Results...

Rankings
C.R. Ambassadors 1,1,1,1,1,1
Chi Hi Harmonics 3,3,2,2,4,3
Midwest Magic 5,2,3,5,5,2
NSP Northern Lights 4,4,4,4,3,5
Midwest Express 2,5,5,3,2,4
C.R. Focalpoint 6,6,6,6,6,6

Judging was done by scoring and adding up the totals. The rankings above is how the judges totals had each group.


Interesting statistics:

Half of the judges had Midwest Magic in 5th, yet they got 3rd.
Half of the judges had Midwest Express 3rd or higher, yet they got 5th.

If ever there was an example of where just adding up point totals wasn't an accurate depiction of the judge's opinion, this would be it.

Well what a well-run and fun competition. I'll make sure to haul my butt back next year to see it because I'm sure it will run again. I loved CR Prairie's show...for obvious reasons. And as Aliyah said, their parents were so nice. There were a few ups and downs in the day, but it turned out to be really fun and well-worth the cost.

Congrats to all the groups who performed yesterday. A big CONGRATS to C.R. Prairie on the win, and taking home the $2,500 check, at the first annual Grand River Show Choir Inventational. It was a fun day with a lot of surprises. I hope everyone had a great time and Grand River Singers looks forward to seeing all the groups next year.
