The final - starts Sunday night

Postby the masked man » 23 Mar 2012, 18:59

Hi, just a quick note to say that the final will kick off sometime around 7pm GMT on Sunday night. John Coan will take on Thesiger in a potentially epic encounter, so make a note in your diary!

Well done for getting this far, chaps. Best of British to both of you.

Both previous finalists I seem to recall. I remember John blowing it with Rod Stewart!

Does one of 'em have to win?

Good luck, fellas.

You will get one vote with either a Nicki Minaj song or Aerosmith's Dude Looks Like a Lady.

Think about it.

That's not a bad (?!) idea - they should both pick 5 songs everyone hates and see what happens. :)

Can I just say that even though I have seen neither list I want to vote for Thesinger's because he runs the Friday poll and isn't all mean and shit to poor defenseless newcomers like that bully Coan?

Some people have bitched in previous rounds about particular links 'not working'. I mentioned this to fellow finalist, Mr Coan, and agreed to remind voters to bear in mind that not all YouTube links are visible in all territories. I think that's the issue rather than the contestants being unable to link correctly or to Andrew not cutting and pasting effectively.

My final five are in the hands of The Masked Man. I have wished my rival the best of luck. Let the contest begin!

Seems like I voted for both of the final lists in the semi-finals. Looking forward to this. I will post my response tomorrow morning.

Good luck to both A & B. May the best personage win.

Is there, or has there been in previous finals any sort of gentleman's agreement where the finalists don't vote, in order to preserve what little anonymity that might remain ?

Joe, I don't seem to have your last five songs in my inbox. Can you please try sending them again? Thank you.

Well, Thesiger's been offline tonight (probably still smarting over the Portsmouth result...), but I've PM'd him and he'll no doubt send me his songs again. Really don't know what happened there - board gremlins striking?

What this means is that, unfortunately, the final will have to be postponed. Sorry folks, but hopefully we'll see this happen tomorrow night.
