how many times do you have to be told that center grove is ineligible to win best band?!? I'm pretty sure this time will be the fourth time. The other times would include Show Choir Nationals 2017 Shelbyville 2017 and Shelbyville 2016. Center Grove has a professional band so they are ineligible to win this caption lol.
For the predictions I made
GC- Los Alamitos. I think they are going to win because of their previous placements at national competition. ie FAME Nationals 2015, 2016, 2017, Show Choir Nationals 2016, and HOA Orlando 2018. Especially with no other California schools being there I see them sweeping the competition.
1RU- Center Grove. This choir has been turning it out year after year for awhile. I also placed this choir based on their previous placements at national competitions at show choir nationals 2016 and HOA Orlando 2018. I also just really enjoy this choir. from their tone to their blocking (I stan Andy Haines) this is just one of my favorite choirs, and I want to see them do well. Also I think they're placement at Glenwood will be telling of how this choir will place here.
2RU- Hastings. I switched my 2RU and 3RU since my previous predictions. I think Hastings is going to be blossoming this year with their new director. I am also I really big fan of Hastings tone. The sound that they produce is gorgeous.
3RU- Glenwood. This choir is very competitive in the national circuit. Wins like Show Choir Nationals 2015 and Their win to bemidji last year, and other placements like show choir nationals 2017 this choir is clearly in the running for a great placement. This choirs program has also been growing so amazingly and i love their unique choreography style.
4RU- Findlay. This is a choir that is clearly going to be bringing it to the show choir nationals stage and having more recent experience with the competition i see them doing well here. I think that this choir would be very exciting to watch on the show choir nationals stage.
5RU- Petal. I think this choir is the wild card. After last year with Homewood doing so well at Show Choir Nationals I could definitely see their southern sister doing well here too. I think if the growth this choir has seen from 2017 to 2018 occurs from 2018 to 2019 then this choir will be very competitive on the show choir nationals stage.
I like to follow the trend on considering how they do on a year to year basis, based off their previous placements and how they consistent they are. I also like to consider changes of direction and/or changes in choreographers. I also tend to take state and judging format into consideration. Most of all just have fun with them, predictions are not supposed to be taken super seriously. So if you feel like throwing an upset or two in, then go for it. You never know you could call a huge upset and take bragging rights for calling it.
GC: Los Alamitos(BV,BC)
1st RU: Center Grove
2nd RU: Glenwood (BB)

My top 4 are defiantly
I think Grand champion will between Los Alamitos and Center grove, but I never sleep on FIndlay because if I did I would be foolish lol but either way these are some highly raked groups that are going to be battling it out and it should be fun to watch.
