I've always done better at the concert, (at least I enjoy myself more) I dislike playing in competitions, I feel like I'm on trial (which I am...)

Some of us do better in the competition phase, why is this so?

Inquiring mind.... :D

Concert.  Way more fun - - - a time to goof around with your peers (former competitors) backstage and then party hard that night.   ;D

I play better at the competition...the winner's concert, I'm sitting and talking with my friends, and I have trouble focusing.  But sometimes I can quasi-nail both.
