Elite Eight Results

Eight votes for the elite eight :P

Sia - Cheap Thrills (cheapthrills-1)* vs. Looks like Bruno is too preoccupied removing Versace clothes to move on, as Sia moves on 6-2.
Bruno Mars - Versace on the Floor (cdschart-2)

Alicia Keys - Holy War (Carbon-2)* vs. Alicia declares war on those cranes in the sky and emerges victorious 6-2. Cranes was Jonathan's last song standing (your choices were great!)
Solange - Cranes in the Sky (Jonathan-6)

Tame Impala - The Less I Know the Better (cdschart-4)* vs. J Lo had a little bit stronger standing than the other songs, but still falls to Tame Impala 5-3.
Jennifer Lopez - Ain't Your Mama (Carbon-1)

Beyonce - All Night (thankfulforkelly-1)* vs Kelly's last song standing. It was leading with the tie at 3-3, but the last two votes swung Sia's way for The Greatest to move on 5-3
Sia - The Greatest (cheapthrills-3)

FINAL FOUR

Our 2016 Tournament is almost at a close as we have the last four songs remaining...

Sia - Cheap Thrills (cheapthrills-1)* vs.
Alicia Keys - Holy War (Carbon-2)

Tame Impala - The Less I Know the Better (cdschart-4)* vs.
Sia - The Greatest (cheapthrills-3)

Some other items:

1. This is my first time doing a year-end. I usually do a March Madness and a Summertime Madness tournament. Let me know if you are interested in participating in March. I hope there is continued interest in these tournaments as I always learn about great music this way.
2. I decided to do only do four contests at a time this go around. I had previously done eight contests (16 songs) at once. Doing 16 songs at once allows the tournament to progress more quickly, but then I'm never sure if people have enough time to listen to the songs. Which do you think you would prefer?
3. One other change I made in the past was for people to send me their top 12 songs. And then I randomize the order. I did this because the people who notice the thread first might have an advantage in picking songs ahead of other people. Let me know if you prefer choices posted in-thread or if you thinking a randomized order would be more fair.

I hope you have enjoyed participating in the tournament.

Might I remind you to check out my threads in the personal chart section and year-end personal chart section? :) If you have a personal chart, let me know. I find a lot of good music looking at other people's charts :)

FINAL FOUR Results

Is it an all Sia finale? Let's see...

Sia - Cheap Thrills (cheapthrills-1)* vs. Sia gets a good start as she does well in the first match, moving past Alicia 10-4.
Alicia Keys - Holy War (Carbon-2)

Tame Impala - The Less I Know the Better (cdschart-4)* vs. Tame impala was much thornier competition, as the match changed hands. They held the lead 6-6, until the last two votes went to Sia.
Sia - The Greatest (cheapthrills-3)

I swear I didn't rig this. :/

Will post the championship and third place rounds shortly.

Shouldn't the heat for #3 be between Alicia Keys and Tame Impala? [Just asking; don't get it]
