Good Evening friends! We’ve all been on the edges of our seats for these results and after hours of tabulating scores, I finally have results for you!
First of all, we had 31 voters in this round — not bad for a Sunday night post!
When I put together the post about these match-ups, I would have never guessed that things would turn out the way they did. I wouldn’t have picked a twangy country duet over Tears for Fears. I wouldn’t have expected a difference of almost 165 points between the lowest and highest scoring songs. And most of all, I wouldn’t have excepted Cake to advance, much less be the high scorer of the night.
