Talk about an embarrassment of riches. Our panel of judges had a blast watching nearly 6 hours of fantastic Power BI demos videos with some tough calls as criteria was reviewed, boxes were checked, and content was considered to narrow down the 15 semi-finalist videos to just five finalists.

Give a high 5 to the top 5

Now the moment you have all been waiting for <drumroll>…
