Great to see Boys that Sing reach the final! Can't really complain with any of those results.

'Tiny Dancer' wasn't a hit at the time but it's definitely been one of the more popular Elton songs in the download/streaming era long before the movie came out. Maybe helped a bit by that Ironik song that sampled it but I don't think it was exactly an obscure sample even then.

Very happy to see The Avener straight to the final! That is a song I kind of forgot existed but I loved it at the time. CLiQ, Florence and Mura Masa progressing is nice too though I actually thought the former would do a bit better.

Also yay for Calum Scott flopping despite so many people coming out of the woodworks to praise it of late x

Very glad 'Fade Out Lines' made the top 5, a true personal classic for me. A song that I for one have never forgotten about tongue.gif Surprised 'All Goes Wrong' did! I'd listened to the album at the time but I didn't remember that track nor it doing anything half-notable on the charts (though I really liked it upon re-listening).

'Burn The Witch' making the top 10 is very unexpected. Poor '9TS (90 Baby)' just missing out cry.gif Also 'No More', but I knew its vote spread of 2 +12s, a +2 and nothing else wouldn't get it far.

And as for 'Tiny Dancer', it being one of his biggest songs on Spotify is most definitely not due to the movie, or even 'Castle On The Hill'. This is from 2014:
