The correct way… followed by the most common misspelling

All I can say is, thank goodness for spell check and google search. The kids participating in this annual event are amazing! Imagine the pressure. Never mind a live studio audience, they’re on live TV.  What’s more impressive is they probably know what all the words meen  ~ chrislukas
