NEW SCHEDULE FOR 2020
As we announced in July, the chorus contest will be split over 2 days. Chorus order of appearance will be determined by seeding rather than random draw, so every session will be a mix of big names, up-and-comers, and groups making their International debut.
The chorus contest will consist of 17 District Representatives, 10 Wildcards, and 3 Global Alliance choruses - 30 choruses total. Once all chorus participants have been confirmed, they will be ranked by score and seeded in the order below.
