Adam, I meant to tell you last Saturday but forgot. I had a good laugh at a couple Urbandale kids. Because our groups performed right after one another in the day time they hadn't seen you. They didn't know the theme of your show and didn't realize your kids were already in character as they headed from warmup to the stage. They were a bit confused when they wished them good luck in the hallway and only received an evil glare in return.

I explained to them so they would understand it was nothing personal. (It was nothing personal, right?)



It was NOTHING personal, I assure you! They are already in character once walking down the hallway. The girls have actually begged me to respond to anyone who says anything like "Good luck", etc. I do my best... but people still don't get it sometimes. I had one girl keep saying, "Good luck, good luck, good luck, good luck." as the group filed by... I just said, "Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.... you aren't going to get a response out of them." haha

Its been a really fun year.

Some Xhilaration members had the same reaction during the daytime as we were waiting to go into warmup and Muscatine was coming out. As we wished them good luck, we received cold glares in return! I don't think anyone took it personally after it was explained, but I found many of the reactions enjoyable to watch

well again, you have to look at what Damon said. the overall judge rankings were combined vocal and choreo thoughts.

and also like i said, i thought that kennedy's gym sorta shot up the soprano sound all day. i thought urbandale and xavier were effected by that.

And that honestly suprises me. I still thought Xavier had some terrific vocals, but this is why i am not a judge.



I agree completely. I saw every group after RCR in finals (Central, Xavier, Washington, Urbandale) and felt that Xavier's vocals were the best.

Based solely on the rankings I know Xhilaration received, I am going to guess that Urbandale was 2nd in vocals.

What were the vocal scores? Wash won BV, then did Urbandale fall behind Xavier with vocals? Or the other way around?

I disagree, I was going crazy in the audience about how bad the choreography was danced, I didn't want to watch because I was hoping for an awesome show. There wasn't good energy up there and whatever energy was up there was disorganized. The show and choreography definitely deserves Best Choreography....BUT it wasn't executed and danced the right way. If I was the dance captain I would have ripped on everyone for that performance. I would have loved to dance that show, sorry but it was not clean.



I guess my answer to that is IDK who should've won best choreography if not Studio. Momentum was definitely 2nd in choreo scores, so maybe them? IDK. In my opinion the composition of the choreography and the staging of it was the best in the competition.

lol. agreed.

I know in choreo Wash had 1 1 4 from judges (Chad Alexander and Jen Oundjian were the 1s), and so Urbandale must've had 2 2 1 otherwise Wash would've won choreo also. IDK what vocal rankings were at all, but Wash had 2 1sts and not sure what the other two rankings are.



"Choreography was great. Very clean."

Damon has it right. We use a caption system, having experts judge primarily in their area. It makes sense to me to have those same experts determine the caption for their area. So, the choreographers choreography scores determine best choreography, and the vocal judges vocal scores determine best vocals.

For group placement, all judges scores were used.

I think thats a great way to do it! I remember back when more competitions has choreography judges, who mainly scored in that area, and vocal judges who did the same for their area of expertise. Maybe more comps should do it this way???

I wasn't sure about that either, but it's based off the choreography PORTION of their sheets. It's a weighted caption sheet, meaning that the choreography judges give some vocal scores, but are more heavily weighted on visuals. The vocal judges sheets are pretty much the opposite. The best vocal score is taken from the vocal PORTION of their sheet, and the vocal judges choreo scores don't become part of that particular equation. Vice versa for the choreo judges. Chad and Jen both had Wash with higher VOCAL scores than Urbandale, which explains their total scores having Wash on top. It was explained to the judges before the day started, otherwise I wouldn't have understood it either!

Caption Awards for Middle School:

Best Male Solo: 6th grader from McKinley. He was amazing! I would highly recommend that you watch this group if you get a chance!

Best Female Solo: Johnston

Best Vocals: McKinley

Best Choreography: Regis Eclipse

If you are able to watch middle school show choir at Xavier this weekend or at Jefferson the following Friday I would highly recommend it! The groups from the Cedar Rapids area are outstanding!

something isn't right with those scores... Washington has placements above Urbandale in every choreography category. If that was true then Wash should've won best choreo. I thought annette layman gave wash a 4 ranking, but even with a Urby 3rd it still wouldn't put Urby ahead in choreo, unless they went off points. giving wash a 4 ranking with Layman ties Urby and Wash in placements, and I did hear that Fair Fehr was used at this comp.
