Scoring judges for the event were Dave Fog, Clay Blackman and Michelle Chaplin.
During Sioux Falls ClaCo ballad, their video boards blew the power. The group carried on acapella, and their pianist jumped from the keyboard to the acoustic piano backstage to continue the performance. The judges and Mr. Spencer stopped the performance, power was restored, and the students restarted their show. They did an excellent job of maintaining their composure and professionalism during the power outage. Kudos to SF ClaCo for exemplifying the "never give up" mentality so well!
Extravaganza used a modified schedule this year- all groups in open class.
