Hi Everyone! I hope your second weekend of show choir was great! We had some photographers grab some great photos of the show choirs at Premiere. Check them out! They are also available for purchase.

Have a great season! Hope to see you at Premiere 2018!

Janesville Male Soloist was Gabe Hanna.

One thing that was added this year at Premeire was scholarships for the winners of the two 4A soloists and 3 other standout performers combining for a total of over $40,000 in total. Was great to see the reactions of not only the recipients but all of those who were in attendance. Congratulations to the recipients and all who participated and made it another successful season kick-off!

After watching most of the varsity groups go today here's how I think this will go.

1. Washington (BV/BC/BB)
2. Craig
3. Kennedy
4. Jefferson
5. City High
6. Indianola

It's going to be a close one.

I completely agree with Savaun. Washington just blew the roof off the place and Craig really brought it, should be a tight top 4.

3RU: Jefferson
4RU: Craig
5RU: Fort Atkinson

GC: Jefferson (BV)
1RU: Kennedy (BC)
2RU: City High (BB)
3RU: Washington
4RU: Craig
5RU: Fort Atkinson

Top four has the potential to be very close.

will this competition have a live stream?

It will be interesting to see the competition between Jefferson, Kennedy, and Washington. I think it's been a while since all three have all competed in the same place.

I'm trying to think. Last time may have been Linn-Mar 2009.

If I didn't miss something, I believe the last time was Linn-Mar 2011, so just shy of 6 years. Kennedy and Jefferson got 2nd and 3rd to Totino and Washington didn't make finals in a very competitive field.

Can't wait to kick off the 2017 season tomorrow! It should be a great day full of simultaneous singing and dancing
