    Is it possible to have the emcee play catchy music and maybe loud announcements so that the photographers will not be caught off guard as to when the next competitor starts? Who knows...the music might inspire the competitors do "crazy" stunts.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.

    Red Bull will provide the music and we will have a commentator announce the names of the athletes before they begin their routine. There will be an official notice board with a schedule of events and an athletes' starting order
