Author: Different results system over here i think.
Subject: What happens is when the recalls are finished and the results are ready, they announce the results in the main hall on a big screen. All of the competitors from the competition are in the audience. They then call them backstage to recieve their awards. This is why it may have appeared to you that the top 5 already knew their results, however the pictures were taken after the results had been announced to everyone. All of the competitors in the recall would have been backstage along with the top 5, however you may not have been able to see them in the photos.
In reply to: Laura 's message, "Hi Guyz i am from australia and i was watching all the live broadcasting of the Worlds this year and i was wondering why sidestage at results the top 5 Place Getters already know there places?? How come they already know i rather think this is unfair on the competitors that do get the lower placers it would be degrading to them! Over here we read from last to first and that bulids the tension for the top place getters and it gets the spectators excited. Just my opinion wondering what others think!" on 02:54:18 12/04/07 Thu

  • As stated by the previous reply, the marks are displayed in numerical order by each adjudicator on a large screen. The dancers do not know until the final adjudicators marks are announced, which palce they get overall, unless however their marks are consistently good or bad. When marks are close it adds to the excitement as it can be hard to add up seven marks for two, three and more dancers in order to work out final placements. Tension can be mighty and many dancers don't celebrate their win until final placings are displayed on the screen. Dancers then have five or ten minutes to compose themselves and make their way sidestage for presentation of awards. (NT) -- No one knows results in advance., 13:36:29 12/04/07 Thu
  • Well they actually do know in advance of the award photo's, that's why you don't see kids crying and jumping up and down in excitement like you see in Oireachtas photos. (NT) -- ; ), 18:36:51 12/04/07 Thu
