We're starting with:

GROUP 5

Bad Romance
1000 Doves
Alice
White Christmas


By far the most conclusive group:

1st place with 72 points as you'd expect:


Bad Romance




Last place with just 17 points was:



White Christmas

(Not sure I've even heard this or have any desire to hear it - sorry Gags)


Leaving the 2nd qualifier to be a toss up between two recent album tracks: 1000 Doves or Alice.

One scored 55pts, the other 39pts.

Progressing to round two it's...












































Alice

GROUP 6

Born This Way
Angel Down
Chillin'
Dance In The Dark

Next most conclusive group was this one...

Though it might start with a bit of surprise.



The winner of Group 6 with 63pts is...








Dance In The Dark

:o








Coming up the rear in this group with just 17pts (the joint lowest total of any song with White Christmas) and a massive 4 zeros from people is...





Chillin'




Leaving the 2nd place play off to be between Born This Way and Angel Down...

One scored 61pts and the other 38pts...

Progressing to round 2 is...








































Born This Way

Surely the big shock is that this song didn't win - but it does safely progress to round 2, no problem. Bye Angel Down. Better luck next time.

Next group we're looking at is:

GROUP 7

Telephone
Fashion!
Dope
Til It Happens To You


Overall this group was pretty clear cut.

Winning the group with a massive 70pts was




Telephone





Last place in this group was actually closely contested. Going out in 4th place with 27pts was...







Dope






Leaving the 2nd place play off to be between Fashion! and Til It Happens To You. Once scored 50pts, the other 28pts.




Progressing to round 2 is...














































Fashion!

Til It Happens To You out.

We're now looking at Group 1:

Poker Face
MANiCURE
Monster
G.U.Y.


This is the first time that we're looking at a super tight race for 2nd place.



Easily progressing in first place with 69pts is...








Poker Face






Going out in 4th place with just 23pts is...











MANiCURE







Which means the race for 2nd place is between Monster and G.U.Y.


There were just 2 points separating them, once scored 45pts and the other 43pts. Progressing to Round 2 is....


















































Monster

G.U.Y. fans - you needed just one more person to give this a good score and it could have gone the other way. Close one!

GROUP 2 is up next:

Just Dance
Dancin' In Circles
Video Phone
Speechless



A clear winner with 69pts:













Just Dance



Going out in 4th place with 28pts it's....

















Video Phone

So one Beyonce collaboration wins its group, the other goes out in last place.




Leaving 2nd place play off between Dancin' In Circles and Speechless. Speechless was 'seeded' 34th in the tournament against 63rd for Dancin' In Circles but it's votes that count....










































Dancin' In Circles progresses with 45pts to Speechless's 35pts.

I'm Speechless. :o

Rain On Me






The other 3 songs were a lot closer... going out in 4th place with 29pts is...

















A-Yo



Leaving the middle positions to Diamond Heart and So Happy I Could Die. This was a close one just 6pts separating the two songs. Progressing to round 2 is....

Jumping down to Group 12 now...

Alejandro
Enigma
Sour Candy
Gypsy

As per most of the groups up until now, there was a very clear winner, scoring 66pts...















Alejandro


But 2nd-4th were much closer. Going out in 4th place with 30pts is....






















Sour Candy.




Leaving us with a very tight race for 2nd place between Enigma and Gypsy. One scored 43pts, the other 40pts.


Progressing to round 2 is...













































Enigma

:o That's a surprise to me - thought Gypsy was more popular than that personally.

I'd be thrilled with Enigma OR Gypsy but after Enigma missed top 5 in the Chromaticurvivor it feels like JUSTICE

GROUP 10 sees the lowest first place score yet as scores were much more mixed:

Paparazzi
Sine From Above
I'll Never Love Again
Babylon



But winning this group with 63pts is...
















Paparazzi




Going out in 4th place with 28pts is...



























I'll Never Love Again

Overall, I'd say ballads have not done as well as their relative popularity with the rest of the public on here... not the biggest surprise.




Once again 2nd place is a play off between two songs from Chromatica: Babylon or Sine From Above. One scored 51pts and the other 40pts.


Progressing to round 2 is...







































Babylon

Not a massive surprise. Sine From Above bows out.

GROUP 8

The Edge of Glory
Boys Boys Boys
Venus
Bloody Mary


Full of relatively early tracks compared to some of the other groups, the winner scored 62pts and is...




















The Edge of Glory



Going out in last place with 30pts is...



























Boys Boys Boys






Leaving us with either Venus or Bloody Mary to take 2nd place. Just 5pts separated them, but progressing through to the next round is...










































Bloody Mary with 48pts to Venus's 43pts.

Not sure if that's a surprise or not to be honest? What do you think?

GROUP 9 is

Applause
I Like It Rough
Always Remember Us This Way
Scheisse


The lowest 1st place score and highest 4th place score so far, so slightly more spread out votes.

Taking 1st place with 60pts is...




























Scheisse

Scheisse did extremely well in the preliminary round and now outperforms the 9th seed of the competition (Applause) in this round...


Last place and out of the game is....






























I Like It Rough with 31pts

:( I love I Like It Rough. :D




That leaves a 2nd place play off between two songs originally ranked in the top 30 of the game: Applause and Always Remember Us This Way.

One scored 50pts, the other 42pts.


Going through is...







































Applause

Always Remember Us This Way is out.

Shallow



And in last place with 31pts is...



































Is That Alright?


Leaving us with a 2nd place battle between two album tracks: Electric Chapel and Beautiful, Dirty, Rich.

One scores 50pts, the other 39pts...

Next up is the 5 song group, Group 16:

Hair
Heavy Metal Lover
Perfect Illusion
Americano
John Wayne


This group has the lowest ranked top songs with Hair and Perfect Illusion the 16th and 17th seeded songs in the game. Will there be an upset, with three other songs vying for their positions?




First up taking 1st place with 55pts is...




























Heavy Metal Lover

So album track from Born This Way that I hardly even knew (cos I never play that album) is a fairly clear winner here! Beats both of those two top 20 hits mentioned.




Going out in 5th place, with 22pts, is...



































John Wayne





So that leaves us with Hair, Perfect Illusion and Americano.

The three songs scored 38pts, 37pts and 30pts... so there really was almost nothing in it between 2nd and 3rd place. Going through to the 2nd round with 38pts is...

















































Perfect Illusion

just beating out Americano which has 37pts and Hair languishing in 4th place with 30pts. A really bad score for a song that was top 20 on both sides of the Atlantic.

Four groups left and we're now looking at some pretty closely contested groups:

GROUP 13

Judas
Government Hooker
Marry The Night
ARTPOP


The lowest score in this group was 37pts (which is by far the highest 4th place score so far) so everyone felt differently about this group.

But winning the group with 54pts and progressing is...


























Marry The Night




Going out in 4th place with that 37pts I mentioned is.....






























Government Hooker


Leaving 2nd place to be a toss up between Judas and ARTPOP. One scored 50pts, the other 43pts.


Progressing to the 2nd round is...









































Judas

Knocking ARTPOP out of the running.

GROUP 14 was a crazy one...

Do What U Want
Aura
Million Reasons
911

There were just 15pts between 1st and 4th place. But winning the round with 56pts is...




























Do What You Want (not cancelled)

Obviously no R Kelly gonna ruin this song for us.




Now the other 3 songs scored... 43pts, 41pts and 41pts... :o So there was nothing in it between Aura, Million Reasons and 911. But which one got the 43pts and progresses? The top 10 American hit, the ARTPOP album track or the Chromatica album track?


Going through to 2nd round is..















































Aura with 43pts

Million Reasons just comes out in 3rd place because it received one 5pt score (for those purists who want full results). 911 brings up the rear in 4th place.

Perfect Illusion going through over Americano (?!) is the first CRIME of these results.

GROUP 15
LoveGame
Replay
You And I
Eh Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)

And in this group only 11 points separated 1st and 4th places with the scores being 52pts, 49pts, 41pts and 40pts.

But winning the group with 52pts it's...








































Replay

:o Taking out 3 singles comes the Chromatica album track.


In last place with 40pts it's....

































Eh Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)




Leaving the 2nd place play off to be between You And I and LoveGame. Will another pop track take out another ballad?

Going through in 2nd place is...







































You And I

Final round and it's the closest one of the 16:

GROUP 11
Stupid Love
Sexxx Dreams
The Cure
Free Woman

Talk about a difference of opinion on these 4 songs - it seems no-one could agree and in the end there were literally 8 points separating 1st place form 4th place. The results were:

48pts, 48pts, 47pts, 40pts... :o




So going through in 1st place with 48pts (but receiving two 5pts from posters)...











































The Cure

This was actually languishing in 4th place at one point, so to win the round is a big jump...



In last place with 40pts is...



































Sexxx Dreams


Which means the final 2nd qualifier is between two Chromatica tracks again: Stupid Love the lead single or Free Woman the song that so many of Moopy want to see as a single...


Going through in 2nd place with 48pts but no 5s is...


































Free Woman

Stupid Love goes OUT.

SOOOOO... Here's the groups for

Round 2

Same rules apply, score them 4-3-2-1pts.

This time you can use up to TWO 5s and up to TWO 0s. To be clear, when using a 5 you are replacing the 4 (so the scores would be 5-3-2-1) or replacing the 1 (so the scores would be 4-3-2-0). You could theoretically use a 5 and a 0 in the same group (so the scores would be 5-3-2-0). Hope that makes sense.

VOTING CLOSES ON THURSDAY AT 10PM

RESULTS ON FRIDAY EVENING.

Group A is savage. Group F is weak as piss!

Thanks @cwej!

It was all because of the way the results held from Round 1. Because Dance In The Dark and The Cure won their rounds (against all odds) they ended up as the 'winners' that progressed to that group. All the seedings and where everything would be put were decided before the results came through, so I didn't choose the groups myself - you all did with your voting. :D

Born This Way 'should' have been in Group F if it had won its heat for example. I can't believe it didn't!

Yay for Replay winning it’s season, but shame about the ARTPOP songs, including Venus(!), not making it.
