All in all? Not entirely unexpected. Each an every one of these performers did their level best and entertained the audience very, very well. Personally, we feel the judges make some pretty fair decisions. It’s also 12 am, so here’s a final batch of photos to round things off. Here’s to a job well done to the organizers and the talented compere who directed the show today.
