Wow! What amazing pitches. The judges acknowledge that this is going to be such a difficult choice. As viewers of this pitch-off, there is so much to takeaway about what makes a good pitch and how to pitch. 

And while we wait for deliberations, we get the treat of listening to replay of Kwame Alexander in conversation with Raúl the Third.
