Day one of contest – it’s what we’re here for, and it did not disappoint! We had 52 competing quartets in the quartet contest today. And wow, they all did a great job. Admittedly, we didn’t hear all of them sing – after all, a girl’s gotta eat! (and shop for sequins). But we made sure to hear our Region 19 friends, and they all did a great job!
Here is the order of appearance for the Quartet Finals on Friday afternoon:
4 Maxx Factor
We are so thrilled for a.k.a., who came in at 11th place and so will be the mic testers for Friday’s Finals, meaning that they get the opportunity to perform their finals set for the audience. What a thrill! And of course, congrats go out to Maxx Factor and Capri, for making the top 10. They’re going to knock the socks off of the judges on Friday!
