Fox Sports Detroit Announces April in the D Semi-Finalists

Snow may have pounded most of Michigan yesterday but that doesn’t change the fact that spring is right around the corner and you know what that means: April in the D.

Fox Sports Detroit created a local phenomenon with their first April in the D in 2008. The theme for that edition was performed by Blacklist union and was generally well accepted as the anthem of the April in Detroit (and the state of Michigan by extension).

Let me refresh your memory with the video below:

Then came the Good Luck Joes in 2009. May couldn’t come fast enough.

The Victorious Secrets tried to redeem the tattered image of the April in the D theme in 2010. They did an OK job but produced the least memorable of the three songs to date (a good thing in one case, a bad thing in the other).

Fox Sports Detroit has announced ten renditions of April in the D that have been selected as semi-finalists for 2011 and your vote plays an important part in selecting three finalists. Voting runs from today until March 6. Head over to the FSD website to cast your vote.
