We have new vote leaders and the dance teams continue to jockey for position….drumroll please…….In first place are Tony Sears & Kim Manning!

 

 

Carl Younger & Anna Whitlow have dropped to 2nd, with Brantley Briley/Sarah Crowe & Steve Jefferson/Cherita Lytle tied for 3rd!

The remaining dance teams are very close to unseating the leaders, so don’t get too comfortable!

This remains a very close race, and it’s quite possible that the current last-place team could sweep the popular vote portion of the competition in the remaining hours today. We can’t wait to find out the results tonight! Votes will still be accepted today by calling/visiting the Arts Center, or by casting your votes during the event tonight. 252-527-2517.
