To keep it interesting and not boring.

Otherwise you might aswell just put all lists against each other in round 1 and get people to vote for the best one there and then.
We won by not being you. Perhaps even the greatest of prizes.

However I am getting fed up of seeing lists that have only changed one song, it's got the feel of pulling a fast one. Next year I'd like to see stipulated a minimum of three changes.
Be interesting to see whether those lists continue with that tactic.


Though it's tempting to change more, why change a winning list too much?


Why indeed.

I think for the sakes of the competition we should have a minimum number of changes each round. Looking at the lists on the semis it just all feels a bit stale now.

Yeah, that's the main flaw with how the competition has worked this year for me. It does feel like your looking at the same thing round after round. That's why people have pretty much stopped commenting in the semi-finals.
