      I've played safer than last time but I hope it's still an interesting choice.

        I'm really struggling with figuring out what direction to go with this.

          sent - I doubt this will save me from elimination, but I'll be happy that it was heard by more people

          this was quite a good theme, I had multiple potential choices

            Interesting theme, no song immediately comes to mind.

              everybody's playing safe, so i'm no exception,
              although, i was considering to propose a special song that might earn me null by default from Wayne and JSparksFan

                Sent! I too went a bit mainstream and feel like that might be my downfall.

                    Round 2 songs have been sent to the Judges.

                    While we wait, a song I considered, This Is Heaven by Nick Jonas:

                      i had a tough day, feeling a little down. I was generous on many songs though, but also I may have been too harsh on others...

                          Sent my scores in, one song got 6.0 points from me which I was determined not to issue unless songs were perfect but there’s one song this round that was majestic, stunning and perfectly suited the theme.

                                    Madonna's Like A Prayer was also covered on Glee in the Episode 'The Power of Madonna', which aired 11 years ago this week, April 20, 2010.

                                    ROUND 2 - RELIGIOUS IMAGERY - RESULTS

                                    Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus [SPARTAN]
                                    LEO: A fantastic song, very fitting and it pains me to give "low" score for this being just too comfort zone 3,0
                                    JSPARKSFAN: Catchy electronica. 5
                                    WAYNE: iconic song, with an obvious link to religion (at least in terms of the song title). Until I read about what the song was based on, I didn't know - very intriguing! I award the song 4.0 points.

                                    Dua Lipa - Love Is Religion (The Blessed Madonna Remix) [GAGARAZZI]
                                    LEO: Music by numbers. 1,5
                                    JSPARKSFAN: First time hearing this and I'm rather impressed! It's so infectious. Just added it to my library. 5.5
                                    WAYNE: nicely linked to the theme, and I do like the song but the production sounds so cheap compared to what she normally does. I award the song 4.0 points.

                                    Frank Ocean - Bad Religion [CHEAPTHRILLS]
                                    LEO: Frank is good and in another state of mind I would have loved this. 4,5
                                    JSPARKSFAN: Frank's best song. He really summons his most emotive vocal performance to communicate his intense experience with unrequited love, equipping the chorus with that coda-like chant of "love me". Toast of R2 for me. 6
                                    WAYNE: he is just exceptionally talented isn't he? He's brilliant. I award the song 5.0 points.

                                    Genesis - Jesus He Knows Me [SONIA85]
                                    LEO: Well know track but not the typical 80s track you'd get in ukmix so cheers for bringing this! 5,5
                                    JSPARKSFAN: Upbeat, great lyrics, strong melody. A home run. 5.5
                                    WAYNE: there's something extremely irritating about Phil Collins voice. I award the song 2.5 points.

                                    Iggy Azalea ft. Quavo - Savior [AFFILLATE]
                                    LEO: No Quavo in the link, which gains 1 point cause of that. 3,0
                                    JSPARKSFAN: Not terrible, just average without any real memorable moments. 3.5
                                    WAYNE: a spiritual link to the theme, I like it. And probably the most listenable song I've heard from Iggy. I award the song 4.5 points.

                                    Mary J. Blige & U2 - One [COLBIE]
                                    LEO: One is outstanding. Mary brings some flavour but the original is just untouchable. A little comfort zone 2,5
                                    JSPARKSFAN: The original is great, but Mary J. elevates this to something special. 6
                                    WAYNE: I've always had a soft spot for the song and Mary added to it (rather than detracting from it, as can often be the case with covers of iconic songs). The link to religion is IMO tenuous though and I therefore award the song 4.0 points.

                                    Prince - The Cross [NAVI]
                                    LEO: Intersting song, it took some time to take off but then when it did I loved it. 5,0
                                    JSPARKSFAN: A bit dry. 3.5
                                    WAYNE: what an absolutely fascinating song with a great link to the theme! I don't think I've heard this before but absolutely loved it. I award the song 5.0 points.

                                    Regina Spektor - Samson [FLOPHO]
                                    LEO: Oh, such a beautiful song. I am sad today, and this made me sadder. 5,5
                                    JSPARKSFAN: Really enjoyed this. 5
                                    WAYNE: I did wonder whether anyone would select this, I'd make an educated guess that this is Carbon? I loved it when we did the survivor and I still do, it's a stunning song with a lovely link to the theme. I award the song 5.5 points.

                                    Sinead O'Connor - No Man's Woman [THRILLER]
                                    LEO: I feel that this round you guys hacked my spotify playlists and chose artists I love. And Sienad is the one I love the most. 5,5
                                    JSPARKSFAN: Didn't feel like this was directly related to the theme, but it's a damn good song, so I'm not too fussed about it. 5
                                    WAYNE: she’s either hit or miss for me and oh this occasion, she was hit! I award the song 4.5 points.

                                    Susanne Sundfƒ¸r - When The Lord [CARBON]
                                    LEO: You guys are trying to break me? This video was beautiful. The song was great too. 5,5
                                    JSPARKSFAN: Solid! 4.5
                                    WAYNE: ethereal, other worldly - absolutely and totally stunning. I had so many feelings listening to it. I award the song 6.0 points.

                                    Tori Amos - Crucify [TREBOR]
                                    LEO: Such a long time since I cross Tori's path here in ukmix. Lovely. 5,0
                                    JSPARKSFAN: Good, though repetitive. 4
                                    WAYNE: the better of the two songs submitted. I award the song 4.5 points.

                                    Tori Amos - Muhammad My Friend [GABRIELFLORIN01]
                                    LEO: And Tori closes this round with such a fantastic intro and even better song. Song of the round. 6,0
                                    JSPARKSFAN: I didn't connect with this. 3
                                    WAYNE: pretty good. I award the song 3.5 points.

                                      I thought that was another strong round. "Love Is Religion" was a big discovery for me! Not sure how I missed it before.

                                        What a round! Two Tori songs, one Regina song - and none of them nominated by me

                                        Glad y’all liked Susanne as much as I do, and that she earned Wayne’s first 6-point mark!

                                          Aw I like how the two entrants with the lowest scores in R1 received the two best ratings in R2 we like a little plot twist

                                            Happy with that! I love that Sinead song, it wasn't the most connected to the theme but she does a whole section about God so...

                                                a little bit disappointed,
                                                not a bad score, but i thought the Prince will secure me a higher placing (that much about a playing safe)

                                                  • I saw the Frank Ocean one was a TV performance so I sent with it too for Savior as the video ad lyric vid had some distracting flashy bits that took away from the lyrics a little IMO, Looks like it payed off for Leo's scores as Quavo wasn't as prominent haha.

                                                    Interesting we had a double on artist with Tori that round.
