Interesting. I think I understand the logic behind the winning positions. #1 is good because all will remember who went first, including the judges. Last position also will stand out.

Positions 8, 9 and 10 are the power positions. That takes some explaining, but intuitively I think I understand why, given it's a long show. Psychologically these positions represent the high point of the show, with everybody well warmed up and in the most receptive state.

Positions 2 to 7 are left as psychologically the weakest. Unless they're big name bands,  they will easily be forgotten playing in those positions.
