    I thought the winner was in the last night's show, now I'm not so sure, so it might be among these.

    That said the topic chatter isn't always indicative of the final vote

    I do wonder if the hyperbolic chatter within the threads impacts on the voting or if we underestimate the impact of the SILENT MAJORITY.

    There have been a few songs across the ASFMs that have had folks CRYING and SHAKING as if they were locked on winners. Only to finish 14th.

    Still not been able to quite pinpoint how the voting will go. Which makes the results all the more interesting.

    One suspects the extended conversation by a handful of voters around the long ambient tracks, may not translate into votes from the majority of voters. But, honestly who can say?

    I think Kano last time, was the most decisive winner from beginning to end, but I don't see such an obvious winner this time.

    How is the optional "jury vote" working? Are you disadvantaged if you don't give a jury vote?

    I think Friday's selection is going to be the one for me, from the sound of it

    Only in the sense you have less of an active role in the final results.

    And if you don't when others do, you'll be gutted.

    I’m very much expecting those to only receive votes from discerning, refined loungers such as myself :)

    Oh I think I phrased my question the wrong way round. What I meant to say was if you don't vote are you advantaged, because 10 people might give your song a 10, but you don't give any points to anyone? Think I'm overthinking it

    I am thrilled at the reaction I got last night or apprehensive about the reception I'll get tomorrow.

    Think of it more as an opportunity to have twice the say in the outcome, rather than a disadvantage. There will be no limitations on the 0-10 jury vote.

    Giving your favourite a 12 is of course somewhat satisfying but no where near much as giving something turgid a 0.

    I can’t begin to imagine the sort of bastard who’d give my song 0 but I’m telling you now, I’d not let them near my kids.

    That's because they're dead. Drowned last time I took them swimming. Forgot to mention it.

    I thought that might happen, which is why I let you go swimming with two decoy children I found in a locked house. My two are safe and sound in their little hutch outside.

    I do honestly believe I have the best song based on the others I heard last night. I look forward to hearing the rest tomorrow, but I hope they have what the majority of the songs in heat one lacked - a heart.

    I mean we have to do some sort of FOCUS GROUP thing tomorrow and haven’t been told anything about it until today which is hardly HELPFUL! Currently trying to organise something despite having no clue what it’s all for :D

    ANYWAY, I really liked the sultry french lady and the twenty year long German instrumental last night so I’m waiting for something to top them (:ken:)

    Oh ASFM is more important than sync listens, public OR private.

    Worth noting that an artist from the first part appears again tonight. I believe this is a first.

    ANY IDEA WHO?

    I wrongly guessed Sufjan would appear twice, shocked no one went for one of his 50 Christmas songs, he could still appear tonight but none exactly scream PARTY.

    If it turns out to be Beverley Knight, this place has truly gone to the dogs.
