    I wish every band the best of luck for the finals.

    No band played perfectly as I said ages ago in this thread.

    I'm expected to forget this event happened like this (since i'm a bander) and just put it behind me as it's all "sour grapes" etc. I have no problem moving on though.

    Although if a similar outcome to this contest occured on Britain's got talent or X factor, there would be national uproar. Everyone would be questioning the judges decisions/talents and making it known that it was farcical. What makes us different?

    (I do not watch the shows named above fortunately)

    We are behaving the same.
    Whatever the judges on such programmes decide stands. We are also talking/discussing/complaining about it on our news forums (here and 4br)
    There may be national uproar but it won't change the judges opinion!

    Only difference is the nation isn't as bothered about brass bands as it is about x-factor. So, replace 'national' with 'banders'
