Although we’ve come…
Folks, Round 1 has been a pleasure. Honestly, it feels like the quality and energy of the songs is stronger than a year ago, when I have memories of dishing out “2s” and “3s” left and right. We’re also ending on a very strong note. I have a feeling a major contender will emerge from this group. And the best part is that it only gets better from here.
To bring the first round home, listen to the Day 16 match-ups here, and vote by commenting before 8pm (EST) Friday. At that time I’ll be at a wedding in the Poconos. For those who know her, big shout out to Maia!
