I’m seeing this sooo much on my dash. It wasn’t really the kiss, it was the fact they didn’t have the songs until like the day before the competition. All the other teams would have been practicing since their regionals competitions, ND were prancing around fountains and having pillow fights. They didn’t deserve to win, they put hardly any effort in. Heart and passion will only get you so far. You can’t expect to win a competition of that size with that sort of attitude. Yes, the kiss wouldn’t have help their case but I really don’t think it made that much difference in the grand scheme of things. Also, they weren’t disqualified, as so many people are claiming, they placed 12th. If the judges had been that offended they wouldn’t have come that high up. ND were just looking to blame their loss on something other than their laziness.
And lets be fair, they lost so they would have a story line for season 3!
