Alapaki February 4, 2016 Share February 4, 2016 What made me both giggle and gag last night was that Ms D styled the girls as mini-me's; over sized sunglasses worn as headbands in place. It also looked like she was wearing a dress at the competition made out of the same fabric as the boys shorts. I kept wondering where and how they got the costumes if they threw that song together in less than a week. I can see the other group having a tie-dye party in someone's back yard--I guess--but buying or making those other costumes? And where did the $ come from? If I were a parent I'd be pissed about the ongoing added expense. (Okay, we know the production company made those arrangements...) I don't have much experience with a' capella performances, but in what experience I've had the groups look more like the "challengers" that come in each week (i.e. the Washington Generals of a' capella). That is, the are not dressed in costumed based upon the song, and are executing choreography that is simply mirroring the music video. It seems to me like the idea is not for the a' capella rendition to be just another "cover version" (only without instruments), but rather a more comprehensive "re-imagining" or "re-interpretation" of the song. That doesn't seem to be what we're getting from either Stay Tuned or Highland Voices. Am I wrong about that? Link to comment
