See round 1 for the rules.
Today’s picture: Great Northern Union.
Background: It’s been 22 years since anybody beat the Masters of Harmony in International competition, but nobody’s made a more spectacular second-place showing than GNU. In a nod to the over-the-top medleys, staging and costume changes that have become the gold medal par in recent years, with tongue firmly in cheek, GNU topped them all. “A Song That Never Ends” (arr. Greg Volk) included snips from more than THIRTY different songs, and as tag built upon tag and climax built upon climax, the chorus threw in three tear-aways in the space of less than 10 seconds. (The sequence is above.) When they were finished, they were greeted with the Standing O that never ends. Never before had a parody been so jaw-dropping!
Top that. (PLEASE!)
