            • Was this really starting in march/april???

              C'mon fellow judges, I did it fast and nice, although a little harsh. Do your part and let's end it soon!

                          Justin Bieber kindof has had a few bounce backs, you could say What Do You Mean was a bit of a return, #1 in several countries and lead to the Purpose era:

                          • We started this whole series back in March, R12 Results are finally in! Here's Adele's new one Easy On Me.

                            ROUND 12 - COMEBACKS, CLOSERS & CONTESTANT'S CHOICE - RESULTS

                            Song 1 - Comebacks


                            MGMT - Little Dark Age [flopho 1]
                            LEO: Not sure about this as I don't think they come back from anything, they were hardly there The song is cool so that's what matters. 4,0
                            JSPARKSFAN: Cool production, though a bit too robotic at times. 4
                            WAYNE: MGMT - Little Dark Age - I just love everything I've heard from them, including this. They are such an interesting group - I award the song 5.0 points.

                            Steps - Scared Of The Dark [Affillate 1]
                            LEO: I thought I was going to HATE it, but I find it ok! 3,0
                            JSPARKSFAN: Textbook synthpop goodness. 5
                            WAYNE: Steps - Scared Of The Dark - felt this was underwhelming and they have had better songs since returning, not bad but not great. I award the song 3.5 points.

                            Take That - Patience [Spartan 1]
                            LEO: Is it a comeback without Robbie mmmmmmm The song is one of their best. 5,0
                            JSPARKSFAN: A bit dry. 4
                            WAYNE: Take That - Patience - always enjoyed their later singles, this has morphed into a classic over the years! I award the song 4.5 points.



                            Song 2 - Closers

                            Janelle Monae - Americans [flopho 2]
                            LEO: Solid choice: a closer from a masterpiece! And the song is fireeee. 6,0
                            JSPARKSFAN: Best song from 2018's top album. Phenomenal message and lyrics, great production - can't really ask for anything else. 6
                            WAYNE: Janelle Monae - Americans - major Prince vibes with this one, utterly fantastic! I award the song 5.0 points.

                            Lawson - Parachute [Spartan 2]
                            LEO: The song is good, but do not scream "closing track" all over the place as I was expecting. 3,0
                            JSPARKSFAN: Pretty by-the-numbers pop-rock, but it's enjoyable still. 4
                            WAYNE: Lawson - Parachute - not my thing I'm afraid, I do like some of what they've done (Standing in the Dark is a banging song) but this wasn't the one. I award the song 3.5 points.

                            Taylor Swift - Clean [Affillate 2]
                            LEO: wow, so nice! I forgot about this one. Taylor knows how to do it. 5,5
                            JSPARKSFAN: Incredible lyricism, circumspect production - a huge winner and fits the theme both as an album closer and as the punctuation of a relationship. Toast of the round. 6
                            WAYNE: Taylor Swift - Clean - so my issue with this is that while the lyrics are really good, the song just doesn't pack a punch, it lacks something. I award the song 3.0 points.



                            Song 3 - Contestant's Choice
                            5 Seconds Of Summer - More [Affillate 3]
                            LEO: 5SOS evolved quite fine from their early stuff. This is quite good, although they have much better. 4,5
                            JSPARKSFAN: High-energy, but it's lacking that connecting element for me. 4
                            WAYNE: 5 Seconds Of Summer - More - thought I'd hate it, but actually quite liked it. Has an urgency to it which is nice. I award the song 4.5 points.

                            Ashanti ft. Ja Rule - Helpless [Spartan 3]
                            LEO: IT sounds a little like Taylor Swift, but not being Taylor the song falls flat. 3,0
                            JSPARKSFAN: A bit boring. 3.5
                            WAYNE: Ashanti ft. Ja Rule - Helpless - oh yes! This was absolutely lovely, such a soft, gorgeous vocal. Even the Ja Rule section was (just about) tolerable! I award the song 4.5 points.

                            Mickey Guyton - What Are You Gonna Tell Her [flopho 3]
                            LEO: I started "ok this is something similar to many other tracks"... but to be honest, it got my full attention and it was a very good discovery. 6,0
                            JSPARKSFAN: Whew, this one cuts deep! Gripping, powerful, memorable. 6
                            WAYNE: Mickey Guyton - What Are You Gonna Tell Her - I'm not a huge fan of how the vocals overpower the melody but it's a decent song, her voice is a bit annoying at times (gives me Miley Cyrus vibes). I award the song 4.0 points.

                                • Thanks a lot for hosting this Affillate

                                  Kinda shocked about the outcome tbh! I'll admit the Janelle track was a bit of a safe choice, but was really unsure about the other two entries, especially the Mickey song. For some reason I thought Leo would consider it boring/bad, glad I was wrong really happy you guys liked her song, feel like she deserves more recognition in her genre (and in general ofc)

                                  Great job Spartan too, haven't heard that Lawson song in years! kinda robbed tbh
