Yeah, the choice of Jonas Bros. made the old, grizzled and embittered judges cringe, but it was absolutely a good video and really won over the crowd. Congrats.

Whatevah was a lot of fun, and one of maybe 2-3 videos we got this year that actually did a good job with lip sync. Congrats to you too!

That last one was really over-the-top and was put into the comedy category ironically. It wasn't going to win Drama anyway, and wouldn't have even been a finalist but for a lack of comedy submissions.

In general, though, categorizing was really tough and we really did put them into the categories where we thought they had the best chance.

Congrats to winners.

It was really fun to see my vid on the big screen. It was really funny to see how much you underestimated the crowd. :rofl:

I uploaded my video if anyone wants to see it again.

Well, I'm just glad you didn't move the room. I was afraid that if you did, there'd be a mob of crazy people running to it LOL.
