1. Can anyone stop Romeo and Juliette? The Dire Straits juggernaut put up monster numbers in the the Round 256, and nearly 20% of voters think it will go on the way. It isn’t expected to have much trouble against Robyn, but it’ll be worth keeping an eye on the average scores in the rest of the division.
2. Will voters respond to a song about not being able to find your way home or a song about the place you wind up at 4am when you’re not quite ready to go home?
3. Can Ziggy Marley pull off the tournament success that has eluded Bob and Damien?
4. Is “Home” a contender for “Best ‘Home’ of the Peoples Choice Tournament”? Let’s see if it can pull off as high an average as Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, or more importantly, a better score than an unleashed Joe Cocker.
