i don't remember the actual scores exactly but GP won by 4 raw points and 1 rank point in the mixed finals and Select won by roughly 60 points raw and no clue how much in ranked (these scores were told to us by our directors)

Im guessing the judges disliked Music Machine’s set because it was dark, gotta give it to them though, one of the best shows this season! Congrats to all the competing groups everyone of them was worthy of a grand champion !

***Carroll Select Sound......WOOOOOOT!!!!!! So proud of you ladies, and it sounds like you TOTALLY rocked the house and brought it hardcore today. Each of you will remember today forever, and all your hard work has paid off in an incredible way. What a fantastic and hard-earned way to finish your year!!!!
***Carroll Minstrel've had one of the most spectacular and iconic years of any group it has ever been my blessing to work with. You are and have been a powerhouse, inspiring audiences and having impact on people's souls through your art. What you've done this year will live in each of your hearts forever, and there's no possible way I could be any more proud of you. To BOTH groups, Tara and I love you and are blessed by having each and every one of you in our lives.

Congrats to GP on their win. ALWAYS a top-notch, fantastic group of young artists that bring inspiring musicianship to the stage. And to every person who donated to Thirst Project yesterday, in helping to use show choir as a means to end suffering in the world through the gift of clean humble and heartfelt gratitude. God bless and thank you to Bert Johnson and my dear friends at FAME, Damon Brown

After watching Uniondale all I have to say is WOW, that has to be my favorite show of the season, they had everything that a perfect show has, they had so much energy and emotion, amazing vocals and such clean choreo, everything just felt so authentic. That ballad was so touching and beautiful it made me tear up, and that was probably one of the highest energy closers I've seen of all time. Overall such an amazing show and I can't wait for awards
