Express had to reset to the the sides of the stage halfway through their opener, the emcee's spiel ended earlier than anticipated and they took the stage without any scoring judges present in the Auditorium. Once this was realized backstage, Mr. Epperson was alerted and he had to stop the group. Both him and the group handled it respectfully and everyone (including them) had a good laugh about ti while the judges re-took their seats.
Did Norris "Gold" end up attending? We saw their prep group was cancelled by the school and that they were waiting to make a decision on Gold. Never saw an update on that and wanted to double check. Hard to keep up with all these comps and mother nature.
The UNL folks did not originally intend to publish the live stream link for external use and it was only in place for live streaming inside the facility itself which is a common thing contests do. Just an update and I'm sure UNL folks would appreciate folks understanding given the error.
The event website we previously had linked up above had not been updated by UNL since 2018, but I found their 2019 information on a different/new page. So as a result, admission and adjudicator information are now posted. Via the event website above, it appears you can still purchase tickets and doesn't mention a sellout, but I don't know. Hope that updated info helps!
