I was one of the emcee's at this competition and it was such a great day! Thanks to all the groups for coming out and making this an enjoyable event for everyone and myself! I hope you enjoyed the fun facts and the epic sing-off during final awards!
In the finals performance, as determined by rank scoring, Solon and Piqua tied for the vocals caption. Piqua won the choreography caption by 2 points. However, these scores were apparently only used to determine caption awards and were not used to determine the winner.
The overall score (which was the "true" determinant of placings) was a tie, and so the judges met, made a consensus, and decided Solon was to be the Grand Champions.
Hope this clears up any confusion over the differences between daytime and evening scores.
Just to shed some light on awards not mentioned on the front page about Northcoast:
Best Costumes: Piqua
Best Instrumental Combo: Piqua
Best Technical Crew: Piqua
Best Overall Choreography: Piqua
Best Overall Vocal Performance: Piqua and Solon-tie
Best Show Concept: Solon
Best Male Soloist: Solon
Thank you Twinsburg "Great Expectations" for a great weekend. Congratulations to Solon "Music in Motion". (: Good luck to everyone on the remainder of their season.
Piqua got second, according to a Facebook status from a member of the group.
I'd be interested to see who won GC. I was there for daytime and I thought Piqua was the best. My top three were Piqua, Solon, Medina. I saw Solon as Cuyahoga Falls 2 weeks ago and thought it was a good show - it struck a note with me today because I was very impressed.
