Piqua HS The Company: Ride With Me

Apologies for a less-than-recognizable selection today. The soloist is so worth it.

Also worth mentioning- the costumes. The dresses speak/scream for themselves, but I would kill to be able to read those beltbuckles.

South Jones Company: Jungle Medley

Never have I felt more welcome in a jungle.

And the solo at 1:58... Damn.

Burbank In Sync: Top 40 Medley

In just 5 minutes and 56 seconds, Burbank's In Sync will cram your ears with:

Justin Timberlake- Summer Love

Christina Aguilera- Ain't No Other Man

Gwen Stefani- The Sweet Escape

Will I Am- I Got it From My Mama

Fountains of Wayne- Stacey's Mom

Natasha Bedingfield - Unwritten

Rihanna- Shut-up and Drive

Black Eyed Peas-My Humps

Amy Winehouse- Rehab

Kelis- Milkshake (with props!)

Shakira- Hips Don't Lie

Christina Aguilera- Dirty

Because this is country-flavored, at the end of Dirty, there will be a "Yee-haw!!"

I totally agree.

Albertville CenterStage!:
Welcome to the Black Parade

You might check out the source material before this morning's encounter.

I can only pass on this comment from centerstageguy06:

Again, so different, So dynamic. This is more than just a staged show choir number. There is a cohesive mastery of content regarding the lyrics and staging that is just excellent.

Euclid Varsity Chorale:
My Prerogative/Rumors

Of course the Euclid Varsity Chorale goes there, Truthfully.
They bring it. They can talk the game... AND play it. They turn it out.
They're great kids, and their superior annunciation proves that they understand the spelling of prerogative.

But if you were a parent, how would you feel watching your darling child perform a Bobby Brown/Lindsay Lohan medley?

They should go after that director with torches and pitchforks.

Love, Auschglitz!

Lafayette Jefferson First Edition: Turkey Lurkey Time

Turkey Lurkey Time is from Promises, Promises, 1968 musical by Neil Simon and Burt Bacharach. I try to avoid Showchoir versions of showtunes, but this one it just too strange.

Euclid Varsity Chorale: Spice Up Your Life/ Jumpin Jumpin

There is no room for this brand of racial divisiveness in American Showchoir. Or politics.

Zionsville Royalaires: Supermodel

Dear Readers,

This morning, I was presented with a situation that is both very alarming and very real. Clicking through the extensive SHOWCHOIR database at Auschglitz! World Headquarters, I found that some of the best SHOWCHOIR videos have been pulled from Youtube.

Is it possible that our adoration is misinterpreted? Why would crombiedude deny the world a chance to see the Dover Crimson Chorale perform Rupaul's Supermodel?

It's a small comfort, but please try to enjoy this performance from the Zionsville Royalaires:

Typing through Tears,

Celebration Iowa!: Take My Breath Away/ Every Move You Make

I know- ballads have no choreography, and are therefore boring. But I've been feeling sentimental.

Please know that if I were in charge, the erotic asphyxiation song would come after the stalking song. It's more romantic.
