or are terminated for any reason, we re-rank students based the adjustment if needed.  For Season 7 2013 -
Harrison Smith due to reasons beyond his control, was not able to go on tour.  Rather then disqualifying him, we
updated his position from 4th place to Finalist and promoted 5th Place into 4th and 6th into 5th place for the records.
