Here goes my official "Brradreview" for JASI2018! first off some house keeping and general notes.
It is 1 in the morning. there are bound to be some errors within this review. do the best you can :}
Also: This was a very well run competition, with a wonderful set of judges! Congrats on getting in some people who know exactly what they're talking about!
Im only reviewing groups I either saw on live stream or in person!
Jackson Academy: What a wonderful show! Im not surprised you pulled the GC off at prep, and I can't wait to compete against you all at west Jones. The energy for the opener was absolutely off the wall. The choreography was wonderfully clean, and the vocals top notch! Shout out to Dolph, Lizzy, Ashlynn, and Dom Ily all <3
Northwest Rhapsody: YASSSSSSSSSSS: Congrats on making finals! I haven't checked so someone can verify this for me but this may be the first time in a long time that has happened so to say i'm proud is an understatement. Wonderful concept and theme and great energy in the choreography!
NE Jones: What a beautiful set and beautiful costumes! blew me away, and the energy in you dance break were mind blowing. I enjoyed the way you told the story and i'm really glad I understood it. Some really amazing choral moments in this one! the ballad was phenomenal.
Jackson Prep: I got to watch some of the some of your show through live stream and you boys know how to dance! they were killing it. There were some really cool aspects of your show that I dont think I've ever seen before so props for that. And of course, congrats on the dub!
Once again, if your group was not mentioned I didn't see you (Sad Brad) but I had a wonderful time here Im glad I got the opportunity to witness some show choir show downs!
