Thanks to everyone who participated! Here are the results, as well a chance for you to improve them.

Scan the list below. Imagine you're sharing it with friends new to drum corps to introduce them to the best shows the past decade had to offer. How would you make it better?

You can take out one finalist -- the show getting the most votes here will be removed if it gets at least two-thirds of the votes that put it on the list in the first place.

And you can pick to add a show to the list (from the placement runners-up and top voter earners shown above). The top one or two (depending on whether one was removed) will be added to make a list of 25 corps.

(It doesn't have to be a show from the same placement: e.g., you don't have to replace a third-place show with a third-place show.)

You may wish to think strategically. For instance, Mandarins already appear among the non-finalists. Do you want to add a Mandarins' finalist show and leave the list without anything from Blue Devils, Carolina Crown, Cavaliers, or Boston Crusaders? Choose wisely!

I'll go first. I'm voting to remove "Kinetic Noise" and to add "Felliniesque", and I have my fingers crossed that enough other people pick a Crown show.

I see someone wants the list to include four Bluecoats shows and apparently nothing by the Crossmen.

I admit to adding another Bloo show to make my total Bloo shows four (or maybe replacing one Bloo show for another) but I did not take off a Crossmen show (unless I don’t understand how this works which is very probable).

I did the appropriate 1:1 vote. 4th place.  Rach Star in.

I wouldn't be opposed to the 1:1 2nd place. Inferno in either....but I loved both aforementioned 2nd place shows.

I would take Inferno over Rach Star but it doesn't make sense to eliminate 4th place.

 

On another note...great list and thanks for putting this together. My personal favorite won 4/12 times but I have a strongly favorable opinion of 10/12 winners.

It's very early yet, but at this point, no show is anywhere near having enough votes to be bumped from the original list. (Which is fine.)

My pleasure! (In my case, six of my twelve favorites won.)

Ha ha! At this point, we have a three-way tie for the extra corps! There are no tie-breaking provisions in this poll, so that is indeed a clever way to expand the list (if it holds).

Very interesting concept on this one - there's no possible way to have more than one BD show on the list.  For me, it was quite difficult in that I couldn't make my preferred multicorps selection configuration happen without having both BK shows stay (sorry, "I Remember Everything" didn't do much for me at all) versus having 3 Bluecoats shows...
