I really cannot wait for this competition. I hope that we do really well. We are all very nervous. I don't know. Maybe all of class B would make finals, that would be amazing......CANNOT WAIT FOR THE FOOD! OMG!
and once again we face the problem of judges with readily apparent conflicts of interest. Frank Bianchi and Mike Crandall should not be judging Medina and Teays Valley respectively so soon after leaving their group as director.
i think since there are those new show choirs like olentangy who came up on top fast, theres not really a way to predict. plus, i havent seen all these choirs shows yet this year. i do think it's going to be another close one just like teays valley was. everyone, no matter who you are, is going to have to work their butt off.
however, i do think some finalists will be marysville, hurricane, teays, and piqua. i really hope solon makes it in there too cause i really like their show. and i hear euclid is coming from the past five pages? lol. i really liked their show as well at cuyahoga so im hoping they do well.
again, there are a TON of good show choirs going to this one
I'm going to alter my predictions a bit since I've seen more choirs.
1RU:Hurricane (I think they'll pull in front of Teays this time)
2RU: Teays Valley
Best Vocals: Hurricane/Marysville
Best Choreoghraphy: Marysville
Best Combo: Marysville
Hurricane's really changed their style of choreography this year, and I think they will fare well. Marysville is strong as always, but I've only seen them in video, not live. They seem to be the strong Marysville we're all used to. Although Teays Valley beat Hurricane at a competition, I think that Hurricane will pull it off and get a 1RU. It could go anyway, who knows.
