Actually, the match-ups were impressively not close. Higher & Higher destroyed People C’mon 178.3 to 140.4. Delta Spirit never had much of a chance, but as soon as Team Maureen cast their votes, it was game over.
Sunny Afternoon blew away Son of a Preacherman 164.8 to 134.6.
Home wiped out A Boy Named Sue 185.5 to 162.5, though Mr. Cash received the most perfect scores in this set, with three 10s. Sharpe/Zeros also earned a spot on the Wall of 10s with two 10s.
High score of the night went to “Home”, averaging 7.73.
So, the division finals look like this:
Division C – Higher & Higher (Jackie Wilson) vs Sunny Afternoon (The Kinks)
Division D – Home (Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros) vs Let Me Go (Cake)
The #1 seeds in each appear to have a solid advantage based on scoring history, but who knows how the mood will strike when it’s time to place those votes.
