    It appeared to just be a list of posters. I didn't really understand it.

    It was nothing to do with the tagged list of posters :D as explained in the rules, you can use your Resurrection vote once per round to give a song you didn't send through a shot at a second chance. It will need 3 votes in total to appear again in a future round.

    I think Jark left that blank for us to all pick one song that lost? And then tagged everyone underneath so it looks like the two are related?

    I can't cope with this, I'm not in MENSA

    @Superstylin' you can't resurrect a song which already got your actual vote :D

    Haha Well that wasn’t made explicitly clear in your rules on page one, and I’m not the only one who’s done that since @VoR has voted pocket full of sunshine.

    The way I took it is was that we are nominating one of our choices to have a second chance if they lose the head to head. Why would I want to resurrect a song i didn’t want to send to round 2 in the first place ‍♂️

    no, you're nominating the one song you weren't able to choose due to it being an impossible head to head in which you wanted both through :)

    This wording makes it sound like you can give your resurrection vote to any song - so surely we can then give it to songs we've already chosen, just to give them another chance in case they're eliminated?

    Edit: sorry I missed that this exact discussion was happening as I was voting.

    Yeah so if one of the matchups is too hard, you can just vote for one and use your resurrection on the other one

    We have 25 sets of votes so far :disco: I'll bring the deadline forward to 6pm.

    So far there's one true SHOCK RESULT (in my opinion), one TIE (where @Ag refused to vote), two more instances of just one vote separating winner from loser, one more race which is still tight enough to go either way, and two instances of the losing song having just 16% of the vote.

    One song has qualified for a resurrection, but it currently doesn't need it. However this is an extremely tight race so it may well cash in that card eventually.

    more votes please!
