Hello Everyone! While you're likely recovering from a show choir hangover, I would like to encourage you to check out the podcast I just now posted where we briefly covered the events and gave comments on this competition and 2 others. I also made sure to include timestamps so that you can go straight to your section. Thanks!
Here's the link:
This could be an interesting comp...my predictions are as follows.
GC: Oak Mnt Singers (V,C,OE)
1st RU: Soundsations (V)
2nd RU: The Network
3rd RU: 8th Street
4th RU: Oak Mnt Muses/Albertville/Spain Park
Auburn is a good group, but a powerhouse is a long shot. I was shocked that Tift pulled the sweep. I was expecting Enterprise to win or at least gain a caption. Tift has stepped up this year, but considering the judges and their preferred styles, I believe the group with the best visuals will win!
It’s all subjective. Homewood, Petal, Clinton, and Auburn are all phenomenal representatives of the South, and ranking those four is purely subjective in any given year — maybe except for Clinton being the top. Oak Mountain, Tift County, and Grenada are on the rise, so it’ll be interesting to see if they become regional powerhouses in the following years as the four main schools have over the past few years.
