Live From The Choir Families In NY
This just in from New York from Dan Hilen, Lakota East High School sports information director, and father of April Hilen, one of the "Clash of the Choir" singers. If I get other emails from parents, spouses or singers, I'll add them to this string. Please post your reviews on the "Choirs" blog I wrote last night.
Also, a ratings note: Cincinnati had the biggest TV audience of the five choir markets, from what I can tell.
Channel 5 averaged a 12.2 rating and 18% audience share.
Hartford/New Haven, 7.4/11%
Oklahoma City ratings delayed.
Just a quick update from NYC and Clash. Being at the program was so awesome last night. It was a party in the studio with the choirs and the warm-up comedian.
The producers had something in mind when they put the Cincy choir first and the Philly choir last. I think they wanted to make sure people started and finished watching the show.
If I had to bet... it will come down to these two choirs. The LaBelle choir was strong last night, but the Cincy choir has some surprises ahead if they advance. GREAT SHOW!
