*The venue's stage manager started the second half of the show without notifying our producer. The judges were not yet in their seats and consequently missed a significant portion of Reverse Osmosis' performance. We regret that Reverse Osmosis was not given the opportunity to present their set in full and apologize sincerely for the upset this situation has caused. Reverse Osmosis has been invited to finals so that they may have a fair chance to perform their set in full for our judges.
