2013 Pyromusical: Italy - The Netherlands

Another quick post but with tons of pictures. :)

Following UK-South Korea's pace setting performances, expectations for Italy and the Netherlands went skyhigh, and boy, they gladly faced the challenge and the competition just got stiffer!

Italy, that early, can be a dark horse and can easily place within the top 5, but the top spot still belongs to UK.

Before the Netherlands' set, it is very obvious that I am rooting for UK as I was very much impressed by how they executed everything: music, fireworks and drama. Then here comes the Netherlands, challenging UK which I thought was impossible. Their fireworks were so spectacular, specially those that burst from the water! They're impossibly synch and just too good to be true. If I am to use awesome again, this is it!

The 20 minutes of the Netherlands (and of course, that of UK) amazing show is more than worth the amount of tickets that I paid for the entire competition.

2013 Pyromusical: UK-South Korea

This post is three weeks late, so to make up for the delay, here are the pictures, Enjoy!

United Kingdom: one word: WINNER! The Adele/Skyfall set, in terms of fireworks and music synchronization and design, is the best that I've seen so far.

South Korea: The UK's set is a tough act to follow. Though South Korea's performance is notably good (as expected they use Gangnam style as one of their background music) and their fireworks are also big and booming, they were just overpowered by the former pyromusical champion, UK.

After tonight's performance, the United Kingdom is clearly the front-runner, the level is excellence has just been raised and the other participating countries must have taken notice.

Next: Italy and The Netherlands


 They just challenged UK!
