On stage, I took out two 3x3's from my jacket pocket, asking for two volunteers to scramble them. The MC took one, and a student in the front row took another. After about five seconds, the student popped four pieces (two edges, two corners) by accident. I then put them in, and then solved the corners, to see if I had put those in right. After that, I then, for some reason, solved the rest of the cube with a really weird method; I inserted the edges with M-slices and U's, and it was quite slow. Unfortunately, I came to the conclusion of two swapped edges, one flipped. While telling the audience what happened, I switched the pieces, through an awkward silence. I showed the cube solved and got a mini-applause.
Next, the MC who had scrambled the other cube, gave the cube back, and asked me, "So you're going to solve this... Blindfolded?" I responded with a nonchalant "I hope", receiving a hearty laugh from the audience. So he gave me the cube, I took out my blindfold, put it on my head, and started to memorize. The MC and a staff-counselor drummer then proceeded to proceeded to play the Jeopardy song on piano and drums. Eventually it grew to fancy variations on that, and I knew I had to start soon. After about 1 minute, they played "epic music" which was basically, half step octaves up, building much pressure and tension. Then, I put the blindfold down, did two seconds of solving, and put the cube behind my back, facing the audience. This act made the audience go crazy, and according to my brother, all stand up to see. The live music still went on during the whole solve. When they were cheering, I just knew I couldn't mess this up. At one point, I had a slight pause and probably was shaking too. But in the end, I finished the last turns, which made the audience erupt in roars. I took off the blindfold, held the cube up, and just felt awesome. Everyone was standing, clapping, and shouting. I even saw some cameras out. I got at least 15 high fives while going back to my seat in the audience, and 20+ congratulations later that day and the day after.
I tried reconstructing the solve later, but couldn't do it. All I have from my memo is (it might not even be right):
Edges: OR GK __ PL __ KT
Corners: AS __ IF __ PL, twisted corner = MU
I don't think any pieces were already solved.
