Good work, friends. 31 voters, including 3 newbies. So, who’s off to the quarter-finals?
Well, no big surprises. And I can’t really give you a play-by-play, because I just tallied all the scores at once. The closest match was between Gladys and Louis. People were throwing out 10s like whoa (some as part of a “hammer” effect, some not). Every song got at least one 10. Only 2 were not Wall-of-10-worthy this round. And the others came away with 9, 7, 4, or 2 apiece.
So, without further ado, the results:
Somebody to Love (Queen) over Clint Eastwood (The Gorillaz) 239.99 to 191.50
Landslide (Fleetwood Mac) over Crabbuckit (K-os) 240.30 to 217.40
Midnight Train to Georgia (Gladys Knight & the Pips) over A Kiss to Build a Dream On (Louis Armstrong) 222.61 to 215.70.
Romeo and Juliet (Dire Straits) over I’ve Been Loving You Too Long (Otis Redding) 250.10 to 198.75
Get ready for the faceoffs between Queen and Fleetwood Mac, and Gladys Knight/Pips and Dire Straits.
As for those 10s I mentioned, 9 went to Landslide, 7 went to Romeo & Juliet, and 4 went to Somebody to Love. High score of the night goes to R&J, averaging 8.07. Landslide & Somebody to Love will be a super close battle judging by this round.
