[this is good] Great re-cap of an eventful night. Biggest surprise of the evening is that the crowd didn't turn on you during Jesus Take the Wheel. I thought surely someone would throw a punch. Instead, you came close to the dreaded sing along.

I had forgotten what Matayas sang, but she was truly terrible, and memorably so (ironically enough since I forgot the song).  However, I almost voted for Liz, too, and Homebody' nearly got my vote too, since she had me in tears unable to breathe for her entire song. 


Emma, we decided had the cute bouncy stage presence going against her.  She's a little too adorable up there when she sings off key. :)


It was fun.

I'm amazed that

- Homebody got up there
and
- sang Surfin' Bird

This is better than the Olympics.

pairs ice skating was on in the background which sometimes synched nicely (as in, awfully) with the songs.

Oh that sounds very special.

Dabysan

It was a very, very special night. I don't even feel that bad about losing, given the majesty of the competition. 

Jodi

I have to admit. I do love me a good KttD recap.

I can honestly say I'm proud to have attended such a glorious event.  The night is burned into my memory forever, as are some sounds that, quite frankly, I already wish I could forget.  KttD does not disappoint!  And thanks to all the locals for making us out-of-townies feel so welcome!

Dabysan

KttD was built to transcend differences and squabbles. You should think about attending KttD XI: The Bloodening. 

Dabysan

I don't know what it is, but I always seem to pick up crowd support. I really thought I had a shot at pissing everyone off. Alas, twas not to be. 

Dabysan

We were proud to have you. And we'll make sure you take the stage for KttD XI.

Before next year, you need to write a new hit for Carrie Underwood called "I Hate Townies"

My biggest fear this weekend - even more than losing the Cup - was that KttD X would fail to live up to the hype.  (We have, after all, had off-years before.)  I'm pleased that was not the case.  Glad to have you this weekend.  And even though I should have sang Miley with my second song, I'm glad I didn't.  It will be waiting for you next year.

Dabysan

That might do it. Though I'm not sure they know they're townies.

It was a total blast - I'm so glad I trekked out there. I'm still a bit conflicted about being told, "you aren't in contentio. You just aren't that bad." Oh well.

I loved hanging out with everyone and meeting more peeps in person. Super fun!

Vanna

Stellar write-up, Daby. We were most distressed to have to miss the entire event this year, and hope sincerely that next year we'll be back in full swing. One note: Matyas spells her name, well, Matyas.

Dabysan

Ah yes. I should probably know the name of the great one. And you need to come back. Your sideline reporting would have been extremely valuable at this year's event.

Jason

[this is good] Well done, sir.  This year's field was exceptional.

hotrod

Sure did miss you this year.  You missed one hell of a show.  But you'll be able to listen to the audio starting tonight.

The entire evening was a blast.  I'm glad to have participated in such a special evening.  Meeting so many nice folks was great, too.  It was even great hearing horrible Jesus songs sung with conviction.  Nice piece of journalism here, as has already been said.

Dabysan

Thank you Homebody, and I mean what I said about your "Surfin Bird." Great, great choice. I think it probably should have curried more votes than it did. It was just bad luck that you had your KttD debut in such a strong field. 

homebody

Mariser, I just saw your comment up there.  It kind of surprised me, too.  For some reason, my usual shyness mostly disappeared that night.  Maybe bad karaoke is my true calling, even if I'm not champion material. :P
