This was some of the best bhangra I have ever seen. Thoroughly entertaining from beginning to end with consistent energy. I'm glad to see that UK team's are using a lot more variation in pace compared to previous comps. It makes for a more rollercoaster viewing experience and not just a flatline performance.
Big ups to all the teams at TBSX and congratulations to the placing teams. I can't wait to see the official videos and the other teams sets as well.

Btw is there a central video place/hub for the UK bhangra scene? US has Bender and GTV and AUS has BhangaHub. Any other channels I should check out?

Nope, Each competition has their own videographers. TBS has all its videos on their Youtube channel. Capital Bhangra has its own youtube channel. FolkStars is the same. TBC videos are up on the Nachdapunjab.co.uk youtube channel ( even though the forum itself has been shut down for months)

Thanks for the share @HdBrar. This competition looks so unreal. I don't think anything we have in North America compares. It seems to only get better each passing year as well. I would love to attend one day. I hope it's an amazing time for teams!

US also has Kings Productions, Bhoops Ent, and RGBTV. I'd also like to give a shout out to all those brave souls who sacrifice their own personal enjoyment of a show to record videos on their phones or cameras and post them online immediately, you're the real heroes.

I'd also like to highlight that not releasing videos immediately after a comp is stupid, here's why:
1) no one is gonna steal your set/choreo, i don't see how any team would ever be paranoid about this possibility. those who really want to see your performance will get access to videos, it's completely uncontrollable. no team is stupid enough to steal elements from another teams set to compete against that team.
2) it won't influence judging at future competitions, judges don't give a shit about past performances, they're gonna judge you based on your performance at that competition in that situation.
3) it won't influence crowd response, it doesn't matter if every member of an audience has seen a video of your set, if your set is sick, the response will reflect it. realistically not many people in competition audiences will have watched videos of past performances.

Only reason not to make your video public:
1) your set sucks and you're insecure about it being publicly viewable.
