DCI World Championship Semis - Friday, August 9, 2019


Recommended Posts

Could go either way tonight. Both BD and Bloo had solid runs, but I feel like they’re saving their absolute best for tomorrow.

Then again, I still remember when Bloo took Semifinals in 2016 despite their electronics not working for half the show.

I mean, if you’re not moved to tears seeing these kids smiling and excited after finishing their show... a current fourth place show... then you just don’t get it. Winning is cool, but getting a stand

It’s 11. I think I’m going to shut it down. I have Rhythm in BLUE tomorrow morning so a good night’s sleep would be a good thing. I AM covering Finals tomorrow, however, so we’ll get together one

Well, whoever wins tomorrow night should put an * behind it because Star of Indiana isn’t here this year.

Bloo's and Flo's mics were picking up the audience 

That was not the audience. No way. That was bluecoats pumping in crowd vocals into the show

Wow.. something happened tonight with the mics in BC performance... That was a shaky run from them... Guard was nervous, soloist where not there. The encore hey Jude had Crowd vocals pumped into the speakers, that was not the crowd singing that was The lyrics being forced.... 

The last note, all mics where turned on the synth played the lowest note it could find and caution was thrown to the wind... 

They should not win a single caption with that performance...

I’m sorry but that is an insane take.

In Houston, the mello soloist wireless microphone for SCV was on the same frequency as the stadium PA system and you could hear her entire run over the PA.

the good news is she had a solid run! Nails.

Not my cup of tea, but still a great job by Bluecoats. I think BD was better tonight.

I think just the opposite.  I thought BD was off and left the door open for Bloo to open a gap in the scoring.  Interesting.  Who knows? 

I sure don't.

Was the singing during Hey Jude from the crowd? It sounded so loud on Flo that I almost thought it was coming from Bloo's speakers....

Where I'm sitting, some of the crowd joined in but the majority of what I was hearing was definitely coming from the speakers.

Personally, Crown and Cavies were standouts tonight. So much energy from those groups.

AGREED. Most energetic performances of the top 5 tonight

I envy the musicians on DCP.  Every corps seems clean to me on Flo unless a soloist has a cranial gaseous moment.

Meh. Most of them just hear what they want to hear.
