Oh the things we do for the blog. Tonight is first night of the Vocal Sport talent competition. We’re looking forward to seeing some of the guys judge the talent… though we’re told it’s not being done American Idol-style and the guys will just be writing down their critiques. However, a few of the guys will be emceeing, and we’re pretty sure that there will be some witty banter going on. We may or may not have encouraged them to go off-script. ::fingers crossed::
Readers, dear readers, we are so very sorry we haven’t posted about the Saturday concerts yet. We promise it will happen eventually. We’ve been going nonstop these past few days, as you’ve probably gathered, and haven’t been back to our room hardly at all… except to sleep. We’re about to leave to go get some lunch, go shopping, and then hit up Vocal Sport tonight. 🙂 We’ll update if anything epic happens!
-Troi and Crusher
So, one of the questions we’ve been getting a lot here in Provo is, “For real, who is leading in the poll where the readers decide who will be Troi and Crusher’s favorite member of Vocal Point?” We’ve been pretty coy in response, not letting on to who is in the lead. And we’re pretty sure some of the guys voted for themselves. Which they should. Unless they don’t want to be the favorite. Anyway, we’ve decided to kick this up a notch and edit the parameters of the poll to make things more interesting. Keep in mind that no one, not even us, can see who you vote for. All we get are the cumulative results. And, we’ve decided to make it so you can vote more than once. So have at it. Spam the darn poll if you want. We want to see how interesting this can get. Vote below:
We just sat through three hours of eight- to fourteen-year-olds singing just to mine comedy gold from the emcees and judges for you readers (We’re not going to critique the performances of children. That’s just wrong.). Luckily, the emcees, McKay and Jake de.liv.ered. There was witty banter, a few jokes that we thoroughly enjoyed (even though the rest of the audience seemed to be too nervous for the participants to laugh), and a McButters and Jake jig-can-can line. We’ll break it all down later (we promise), but let us just say that even though we’ve heard more Adele tonight than we’ve heard in the last month, it was time well-spent.
And apparently we have a politician in our midst. Personally, we’d kind of like to see some of the other guys step up their game and hit the campaign trail, too. Because while we may run most of the blog as a benevolent McDictatorship, the poll for determining who the readers think should be our favorite Vocal Pointer is a shining example of the purest form of democracy. Basically, we want it to be full of corruption, bribery, ballot box stuffing, and all sorts of other shenanigans that will be hilarious.
