The highlight of last night (one of many) was the tribute to Uncle George Na'ope - to see everyone around the stadium dancing to his song, including kumu and the judges, was so touching. I must admit, I did shed a tear!

Lowlight (IMO) was that Johnny Lum Ho's halau did not place for wahine kahiko or auana. I don't know the politics and without being fluent in 'olelo hawai'i, i realize i can never truly 'understand' hula but I know what I like and I thought his halau were fantastic - esp. the tribute to kalaupapa (kahiko). WOW! Of course, the judges did not agree...
