                                  JSparksFan ends up at the bottom, but on his defense (or not...) he only voted in 4 roudns, so he didn't support his music enough! A very bad last round pushes him down, giving Affillate an unexpected #9 ending, considering he was #10 for 7 rounds! trebor strated solid but eventually dropped.

                                  Thriller couldn't take off, but also did not score any SOTR. matthew_dixon was destined to end in the podium but Boyzone failed to support him and ends up at the top of the second half of the leaderboard.

                                  I was kinda midpoint all through the game, even when I have Alanis winning a round and jumping to #2 here. Being the last to choose songs, and avoiding repeating artists, I fell a #5 is quite a good result. Metalweb similarly ends up at #4, with Cher giving him a win but then staying consistently in the middle of the chart.

                                  3. (5.) (5.) (5.) (8.) (9.) (7.) (8.) (2.) (9.) navi - 5.032

                                  navi ending up at #3 is a suprising, or not, result. Considering he won 4 rounds, the most of any player, it's actually surprising he is not #1... but he also got the #84, #86 and #87 song here so that balanced the score. Still, amazing that he managed a #9-#3 climb in the second part of the cup!

                                  Chantal almost made it!!!! It was a very close race at the end, and she got a strong entry with Catatonia, but it was just not enough to beat our King of Games, mr cheapthrills.

                                  cheapthrills was Top2 the entire game. He just won 1 round, but the interesting thing is that his #1 song is not even his highest ranked song!!! Iris, The Way and Save Tonight both ranked better. But he didn't manage any song in the Year Top10, which explains why in the end it was such a close race between him and Chantal.

                                  Congratulations cheaptrhills!!!! Here is your winning list:


                                  Brandy and Monica - The Boy is Mine
                                  Shania Twain - You're Still the One

                                    • Congrats cheap! I flopped on the whole, only four songs in the top 40, but I guess it was an indie crowd. Thanks Leo for a fun addition!

                                        • Oh I was sure I'd be the runner-up again, so that's a nice surprise Makes up for being booted out of Affillate's game. It helped to submit first, I think; I remember that being hard when I was one of the last in the previous contest.

                                          It's too bad about their placement because I actually really enjoyed JSparks' and Affillate's choices - when I look at that list, I feel like I see a bunch of their songs I rated highly.

                                          Another amazing job, hosting, Leo - sorry to hear you won't be continuing it

                                          • I've been hosting a few survivors of late, and it tends to be Chantal, cheapthrills, Navi and Metalweb who take part - so great to see all four as the top 4 in this!
