1. Boston. I know I expected them to be better, but not that much... they're in my top 3 this year.
2. BK. That hornline has improved so much from last year. Honestly I think this is one of their best years.
3. Hornline micing specifically SCVs small ensemble. Don't know if I like it, but it's the future I'll get over it.
4. Phantom... design shmesign yada yada. Their music blew me away. One of my top 5 favorite moments from the season is around their 5:20 mark. I like them when they're aggressive.
5. Madison's show impressed me way more than I thought it would. Sorta can't believe they did Judas after this show.
6. Mandarins. We all know why. Great job y'all. Fiercest drum major too you should watch her for a minute or so she sells it. I'd have them and Madison both in finals over crossmen... just think their show is lacking compared to both.
7. Die hard crown fan and it's the first show I was sorta meh about. Still die hard though, hum their show to myself more than any other one.
8. Cadets didn't rebound the way I thought they would. Whatever, still really enjoy their show.
9. I'm surprised scv hasnt won recently... if they did it would make sense. It makes sense that BD has been winning too but still... theyre just as worthy as BD for that 1st place IMO.
10. Lastly, I'm surprised I've enjoyed this season so much... theres multiple shows from last year I just didn't enjoy but this year... everyone has been bringing it. Like I said, design shmesign. Everyone is doing fantastic! Buying the blue ray asap.
