    That can happen. Judges don't always have the best handwriting, and sometimes the scrutineer has to go with what they think is written down. If the couple that didn't dance was still in the system, and the number the judge wrote looked like that number, they could get recalls in absentia. Probably not enough of them to make it to the next round though. ;)

    I am sure that can happen. However, when 2 judges make the same mistake, that raises some eyebrows. :)

    I had a friend at a comp once who got called back in a dance that he didn't compete in. He did American Cha Cha, but not Swing, but got called back in Swing. We assumed they messed up and called back the Swing people for Cha Cha and vice versa.

    The scoresheet system is different at NDCA Nationals than other competitions (except final rounds). The judges have all the numbers of the competitors on a score sheet and they circle the ones they want called back. With that it can be easier to make a mistake, especially when there can be 60+ couples in a single event with similar numbers.
