categories in GON

My personal view of YOUTUBE about GON is that they need two categories for Northern Drumming today because of the Straight Singing and Contemporary Singing. High Noon was in GON and I think they got short change becasue they sing Straight songs and if they had a sing off with Bear Creek and Bear Creek sang a Contemporary Song and High Noon sang a Straight song, my question is how can you judge that with the different styles. But hats off for Cree Conferdation for placing 3rd

i said the same thing !!!!

thats the only reason why i dont go to GON, because of the judging, that is a very big powwow, and i dont see how they can judge on dancers, either by popularity, or pity, , cause there are so many dancers that dance the same, and also stop on the last beat of the song, , , and that is very true about judgeing on the drummers !!!

Lightbulb A Number of Powwows

Combine Northern styles of singing. Southern as well....Yes its tough to judge. It would be nice to see 4 categories.....I believe Indio did or does this. Northern Original, Northern Contemp, Southern Original, Southern Contemp.....

If they are combined you really have to fine tune your judging. Have to be very precise.

It makes me wonder just how singers of each style judge or see the other? I enjoy singing Northern Original and Contemp. I pretend to sing Southern.....LOL

I believe that the younger people prefer contemporary songs..... just because.

Older people like the oldstyle singing because thats what they grew up hearing.

In a combined style of contest, the winners will be determined by the ages of the judges.

Check it out sometimes. See if my theory has any weight to it. I did and I found that more often than not....... that's the way it turned out.

That's why, when I run a singing contest, I mix up the ages of the judges as well as the areas/nations that they come from.

I hear ya Ki....Variety is important....

A song has to be lively and upbeat....I think that makes a difference....Some groups shoot themselves right in the foot when they compete....Ovious Fo Pahs...LOL! The pressure is too much sometimes and folks usually crack under pressure....I've got some good stories....

I'm all over as usual....Have you ever noticed that 1 or 2 singers who sit with their back to the arena and are humming along at best? Sure can tell to especially if the volume all the way around is slanted....Some groups try to sneak a hummer in there from time to time....Geez...Too Obvious....
