What musical theater fan doesn't love a great opening number? Our new tournament goes in search of the greatest of them all.
These 64 candidates - cultivated from YOUR nominations are divided into 4 "periods."
Three of them, The Classics, The Next Generation and Current/Recent/New are seeded by date of the show. The fourth, Beyond Broadway & Flops, is paired off to keep the flops separate from the others.
Now, your votes have narrowed them down to The Big 32, and this week you will vote again to create The Sweet 16! As you can see, there were SEVERAL surprise eliminations - the one I thought would win it all was taken out in week one! Anything can happen, so vote and spread the word!
The Greatest Musical Opening Number
Tournament: The Big 32
Be sure to consider the show & the song, not just the show. It is possible that the best opening number might not be from the best show! Unlike previous tournaments, every question is not "required," though we hope you'll each one. So if you aren't familiar with a song, you don't have to vote on that pair (but of course you can!).
HOW IT WILL WORK:
- THIS WEEK, YOU ARE VOTING TO CREATE NEXT WEEK'S SWEET 16 OPENING NUMBERS!
- SCROLL DOWN THE POLL TO EACH PAIR. THERE ARE 16 THIS WEEK.
- THIS ROUND WILL END AT 5PM ON FRIDAY, MAY 6TH.
- YOU MUST CLICK THE "COUNT MY VOTES" BUTTON AT THE BOTTOM FOR YOUR CHOICES TO COUNT!
