How did that happen?
And yeah, let’s keep our fingers crossed that GPB won’t clinch Mraz and move on to Lupe– who got more first place votes, actually, but not as many votes for runner-up or second runner-up, which knocked him downwards in GPB’s point system.

The majority of the senior class had no idea this vote was going. IN conclusion…Bring Lupe, we had Jason Mraz freshman year…its time for change. Jason Mraz, Fountains of WAyne??? seriously…Coolio??? Need something upbeat this spring

His band sounded excellent, but Lupe himself was just plain narcissistic. He introed every other song with “and here’s another one of my grammy nominated classics!” and literally took 20 minutes for the dude to stop fucking around on stage and begin what the entire crowd thought would (finally) be his closer, “Daydreamin'” (it wasn’t). Believe me, dude is a great performer when he’s actually performing, but his stage banter and ego literally drove me and about a third of the crowd to bow out early.

That said, we don’t have many better options. The Roots would plainly be the best choice, with Lupe and Third Eye Blind (Georgetown students love nostalgia) being good alternatives. T-Pain would just be annoying, and from there I think we see the quality of the show take a dive.

Clearly I’m the only person man enough to admit that Jason Mraz would be pretty sick.
