I really wonder how Mundelien's men would fare against their women if they stopped getting such bad time slots in comparison. Both groups were phenomenal, they always are, and I believe Lights had a well-deserved win, but as a male singer I wish the schedules would acknowledge how hard it is for men to warm up in the morning, and how hindering I'd imagine it was for the boys.

Why is it harder for men to warm up?

I agree with @kmchas. Warming up isn't that hard in the morning.... I'm also a male singer and I can sing perfectly fine in the morning and like warming up isn't that hard... it's just warming up.... Idk I just see that saying "I wish the schedules would acknowledge how hard it is for men to warm up in the morning, and how hindering I'd imagine it was for the boys" is kinda just an excuse lol.

At La Crosse Central in 2018, Sound FX went much earlier than Lights, and made finals over them. I’m sure there are other examples. If you come out and set the bar so high no one can surpass it, your time slot doesn't matter.

In terms of actual vocal technique, I would argue that it’s actually easier for men to warmup earlier. Most men sing primarily in their chest voice, whereas good technique for women means they need to incorporate much more head voice in their sound. It’s much easier to sing in chest voice earlier in the morning than in a good mix/head voice.

While I COMPLETELY agree with your statement (and I applaud those kids for being able to accomplish such a feat), there’s an acknowledgement that has to be made that performing later just simply tends to be more favorable. There’s no denying it, or else competitions wouldn’t invite returning groups into the finals spots of the day round.

As for warming up, I can completely see that a simple time slot being the reason for a loss is baloney. And yeah, I did think that Lights was simply better than Sound FX vocally, and time slot probably wouldn’t have changed that all that much. Warming up really isn’t that hard, I’ll agree with that above statement, but to the extent that you’d be talking about men with training and age. But specifically at this high school level and age, you can’t deny that anatomically, men have a harder time working with their voices than women, and should. It’s not an excuse, it just means they have to put in more effort than girls, and if they can’t, well, goodbye Grand Champ trophy.

Actually I completely disagree. An untrained male voice would use even more chest voice and even less head voice than a trained male singer. It’s the cricothyroids that would be the most tight early in the morning, and those are the muscles that help with higher pitches.

Wheaton rightfully took this one, but a very competitive day. The only one I thought could possibly be higher is Neenah, but overall seems right for the 6 that were present in finals.

I agree. 1 and 2 were right where the should have been. 3 and 4 could have gone either way (fortunately it went the way I hoped it would go.) and 5 and 6 could have gone either way.

I didn't catch everyone at prelims, but from what I saw 5 through about 8 must have been battle with some good choirs just missing the top 6.

I feel like there is no way that whatever they said is as bad as everyone reading this comment is assuming it was

I don’t know what the comment was. My personal approach when commenting is to use care & certainly no diatribes, however I don’t agree with the censure that caused a poster to completely remove opinion. Social media is a rough place for sure. As we participate in any forum, we should expect soup to nuts in opinions.

So i think the list of judges might be wrong because i am two seats away from Ann Schoenecker right now at the Logan Showcase...

The judges we have listed were submitted by a representative from Fort Atkinson. That was about a month ago, so it's certainly possible things may have changed. If you or anyone else have any updates let us know. That's an easy thing to adjust.
