I loved how RCR had a member sing that line live near the end.

I didn't see a live singer. Missed that.

@DrumManTx  They got three apples there lined up on the podium to crunch into for you....

When I saw the DM polishing an apple and two more on the podium before Guardians started their performance Tuesday night, I was soooooo tempted to shout out, "How do you like them apples?"

Hmm. After three viewings in a row, I think I can safely say that's not my favorite Guardians' production. It's a perfectly fine show --- just a bit tame after what they've done the last few years. I also feel like they typically design their transitions a bit better....the show felt disjointed to me. Lots of little moments that didn't really come together as a whole as well as it usually does for them.

Whereas it's my favorite of their four shows in O.C. Finals (and I bought the unprintable tee shirt from last year's show) ... BUT I agree that it was sloppy. I said as much to the woman running their souvenir booth on Tuesday night, and she said it had been a challenging season.

They ended up 0.9 behind last year's W.C. Prelims score, but 1.5 ahead of last year's O.C. Finals score.

I almost did. She was right up front and center, but it was quick: I only realized it was live at the very last second, and then she walked away from the mic.

GE is hitting a ceiling.  Bloo got one perfect score in achievement tonight and there will be more by finals.  

Or, the judges can just drop the scoring range back down a little to ensure they don't run out of room.

Just feel like the BD ending is almost identical to most previous BD endings.

I feel like the whole BD show is too similar to most recent BD shows.

how can anyone call iconic Beatles  music hokey?

Because it is.  The early music, anyway.  I want to hold your hand is pretty simple music with early pubescent lyrics.  That's not a criticism, just an observation. 

I grew up with the music of The Beatles and the Beach Boys. I loved it in the 60's and 70's but I've grown more musically as I've gotten older.   Bloo does a fantastic job with their drum corps arrangements and showing the progress and growth with the music throughout their presentation, just as the Beatles did in real life.

I would not have chosen the music of the Beatles for a championship contending drum corps show but Bloo did what all the top corps do, they play it so well I enjoy it from beginning to end.  They made me like it.
