    trebor has the Song of the Round in Round 8 with half.alive - Pure Gold, and Jumps two places in the Leaderboard. Spartan also rises two, While Gagarazzi drops two positions. The rest were unchanged or only one place shifts with two rounds to go. Fixed a typo in the last update (it was the R7 tiebreak not R6).

    I had Human Nature, good timing they also ended up being last years Hall of Fame Inductees at the ARIA Awards in November and received Order of Australia medals in the 2019 Australia Day honours earlier in the year.

    They didn't perform Wishes at last years ARIA's (although their #3 peak 1997 hit with John Farnham 'Everytime You Cry' as Gagarazzi mentioned; did appear in their little medley performance). and their 'Still Telling Everybody' GH compilation released recently reached #3.

    They had some great songs off that debut album such as Got It Goin' On & the title track, they also went full on Boy band with He Don't Love You for their third album (video features a cameo by Holly Valance!) which was painstakingly obvious they went for the N*SYNC vibe that was big around that time circa 2000/01.

    *(again if these links are geolocked theres a few alt audio links and such around through search, IIRC there was an alt version video for GotItGoinOn as well but anyways.)

    By 2005 however they released a Motown Covers album which was very successful (went to #1), and they've stayed in that kindof wheelhouse pretty much ever since, releasing several covers albums (few of which have reached #1 or gone top 5 on the ARIA Album chart, most of the 2010's ones were covers of songs from the 1950's/60's with an original song or so thrown in on some). They also have had a big Vegas residency started in 2009.

    Finally that connection with Anthony Callea I mentioned? he sang Wishes as his Audition for Australian Idol in 2004 (he had previously popped up auditioning for Popstars).

              All of my other kpop entries had subs too though, all you had to do was turn them on if you wanted

                    • Surprised Mitski gave me my highest finish so far (even if that was just 9th place ). I thought Clairo would get more love; a lot of the results have really taken me by surprise.
                      late.

                        • 4 Ilse Delange - Where dreams go to die - A little depressing But lovely and mellow
                          3 Incubus - Drive - Holy f! I've heard this song tons of times and never knew it was Incubus. Always thought they were a heavier act than this.
                          2 Overstreet - My Ex - Think this would take a few listens to get into. It's not bad, but not very dynamic.
                          1 Betty Who - Human Touch - Doesn't deserve a 1; this set was similar quality to me. Just got my foot tapping a bit, I like the song by her called Ignore Me that came after.

                          4 Tacocat - Grains of Salt - Really happy song. I needed to hear this after Ilse depressed me
                          3 Julia Michaels - Body - This song is so melancholy. Even though I feel the lyrics deeply, I think I'm not in a place to hear this.
                          2 Marc E. Bassy - Die Hard - I needed to pause at 0:18 of this video for a moment Enjoyed this, though even for a short song it was a little repetitive.
                          1 No Rome - Seventeen - Thanks for that flashing images warning. I had to click off and just listen. His voice reminds me a little of Bazzi. This took awhile to get going, but I liked the little instrumental at the 2 minute mark.

                          4 Dinah Washington - What a Diff'rence a Day Made - I really love this. Magical.
                          3 EZI - DaNcing in a RoOm - Really simple video, but it did add to the enjoyment of the song. Chill dance song.
                          2 Sirdeles - Moterys Meluoja Geriau - This is cute - It's a little slow, though I like the shimmery sound near the end.
                          1 Tina Arena - Chains - Never heard of her until I joined UKMix, but since then I feel like I've seen this song come up about a dozen times. Not bad. Sounds like something Gloria Estefan would have done around then.

                          4 Celeste - Strange - Another melancholic song, though the background music is hypnotic, and the vocals appropriately subdued.
                          3 Zamaera - Z vs Z - An adventurous choice - I liked it a lot
                          2 Judy Garland - The Man That Got Away - The Shallow of its day Her voice was perfect for musicals.
                          1 Kanye West - Blood on the leaves - I miss this Kanye. It kind of pisses me off that he sampled Strange Fruit for a break-up song though.

                                  • Group A:

                                    4. Betty Who - Human Touch [That Australian 'home' is inescapable]
                                    3. Ilse Delange - Where Dreams Go To Die [Hypnotic]
                                    2. Incubus - Drive [A classic]
                                    1. Overstreet - My Ex

                                    Group B:

                                    4. Tarocat - Grains of Salt [The best of a bad bunch unfortunately...very garage band]
                                    3. Julia Michaels - My Body [Very early 2010s theme, but a few years behind unfortunately. I'm not a fan of body positive songs as I find them very boring. I'm a skinny guy in a macho muscle adoring world and I've come to accept that...I don't need a song about it]
                                    2. Marc E. Bassy - Die Hard
                                    1. No Rome - Seventeen

                                    Group C:

                                    4. EZI - Dancing In A Room [I loved this!]
                                    3. Tina Arena - Chains [A nice flashback, but she has better songs IMO : Sorrento Moon, Symphony of Life and her French hits. One of her latest French songs L'ombre de Ma Voix is divine!]
                                    2. Sirdeles - Moterys Meluoja Geriau
                                    1. Dinah Washington - What a Diff'rence a Day Made [I'm not a fan of old songs/styles of singing sorry]

                                    Group D:

                                    4. Celeste - Strange [Another bad group. It was hard to pick a #4, but at least this track was original]
                                    3. Judy Garland - The Man That Got Away [Another old song, not my cup of tea]
                                    2. Kanye West - Blood On The Leaves [It sounded like Kanye was. fighting the sample with autotune]
                                    1. Zamaera - Z vs Z [Concept was interesting, but again not my type of music]

                                        • GROUP A
                                          4 Incubus - Drive
                                          (great laid back jam)
                                          3 Overstreet - My Ex (Cool to see Chord from Glee, nice)
                                          2 Betty Who - Human Touch (I like her cover/rework of I Love You Always Forever, this one is nice)
                                          1 Ilse Delange - Where dreams go to die (nice and kinda folksy, tough group IMO)

                                          GROUP B
                                          4 Marc E. Bassy - Die Hard
                                          (I like the groove of this)
                                          3 Julia Michaels - Body (is another body positivity song, nice vocals on this)
                                          2 No Rome - Seventeen (nice and chill)
                                          1 Tacocat - Grains of Salt (quirky)

                                          GROUP C
                                          4 Tina Arena - Chains
                                          (Classic jam although it mightve been cool as Gagarazzi said to highlight another of her songs maybe and see how it fares game wise)
                                          3 Sirdeles - Moterys Meluoja Geriau (nice for from what I can tell, the soundtrack to a soap/TV show?)
                                          2 EZI - DaNcing in a RoOm (groovy, might've voted slightly higher in another group)
                                          1 Dinah Washington - What a Diff'rence a Day Made (very chill)

                                          GROUP D
                                          4 Zamaera - Z vs Z
                                          (this is really interesting. switches it up when the beat drops and it gets its flow on).
                                          3 Celeste - Strange (nice)
                                          2 Judy Garland - The Man That Got Away (nice, was this the MAIN SONG of this version though, like equivalent to Shallow?)
                                          1 Kanye West - Blood on the leaves (agree that this has a bit going on and also with the autotune)

                                                Yes, it's a main theme of the longest Lithuanian TV series (850 episodes).

                                                  Julia is nice, and the Tacocat song was pretty good.

                                                  1 - Sirdeles - Moterys Meluoja Geriau

                                                  I'll hazard a guess that Tina is a RayRay choice. Dinah's voice is like silk, I love it. And I do actually quite like the Tina song also, a classic.

                                                  1 - Zamaera - Z vs Z

                                                  Never thought I'd rank a Kanye song so high but those other two songs are just not my thing and aside from that, the Kanye song is actually pretty good. Judy is a queen in my mind, her voice is so underrated! It's so powerful.

                                                  Each group had 2 good / great songs and 2 okay / bad songs.
