The crowd of about 450 people had the opportunity to Text vote for their favorite video after all of the videos aired. The hosts for the night explained how to vote and most of the crowd got it right away but there were a few folks that needed to hear the instructions again.

Almost half of those in attendance voted. It made the process very simple as the Qittle platform is real time and the results are instant.
