MEAN MELIN (Eric Melin) took tonight’s NYC Semi-Final. He was dealt a tricky, shitty Jefferson Starship compulsory track and somehow convinced us all it was good — which is exactly what will be required of whichever champion the U.S. sends to Finland. Joining him in the National Finals next month will be WINDHAMMER (Rob Weychart) and newcomer to the finals ROCKUPINE (Jeffery Stiles). An incredible evening, the staff blog is squirting through the mojo now and will be uploaded shortly. In the meantime, USAG heartily thanks NYC for being such gracious and rowdy hosts.
