NGS #12 Results – In The Money Again…

NGS 12 Winners

We were upstairs for this edition of the Nitty Gritty Slam, battling the band downstairs. The voices of the poets rose above it all and we were treated to some great new poetry and some old favorites both at the open mic and the slam.

Before the slam began, and while Dain Brammage was rounding up judges, D. Alexander Holiday, Bless, Mojavi, and Jessica Layton all got up and participated in the open mic before the slam. Jessica also participated in the slam, making it a “5-4-2” this time around, with Dan Wilcox, Poetyc Visionz, Elizag, and Shannon “In The Money” Shoemaker.

In the end, there were three familiar faces on stage accepting their prizes.

Here’s how the scores broke down:

Round One:
Dan Wilcox – 25.8
Poetyc Visionz – 28.7
Elizag – 28.4
Shannon Shoemaker – 28.3
Jessica Layton – 26.0

Round Two:
Jessica Layton – 25.9
Shannon Shoemaker – 28.0
Elizag – 28.9
Poetyc Visionz – 28.2

Round Three:
Elizag – 28.9
Poetyc Visionz – 28.7

The next Nitty Gritty Slam is number 13… It’s seen as bad luck for some while other see it as a sign of good things to come.

Who will come out on top at NGS #13? Will Shannon “In The Money” Shoemaker return to the top spot? Will we see more perfect 10s? Will we see an upset from a new face on the scene? Come out and join us for the next installment of the Nitty Gritty Slam on Tuesday, March 6 at Valentines to find out.
