So happy Brit won. wub.gif

Just wanna say a HUGE thank you to everyone who took part in this and made it a big success right from the get go. It's been incredibly fun and really interesting to see the choices each forum moderators made for their forums and seeing how they'd either backfire or be incredibly smart choices etc... We only had to use the random generator TWICE (both of which backfired - soz Rob/Take That; R.I.P. Ari forum </3) but other than that some very risky choices early on that only just paid off for forums like Kylie, Madge & Gaga!

Some issues towards the end that really opened our eyes as to how easily manipulated everything could have been and we will DEFINITELY be looking into more suitable types of voting procedures in the future. It was only ever designed to be a fun, little game for the AF's and their communities, not BJSC-style seriousness level. laugh.gif

But we powered through. Thank you to every one who voted. Thank you to the moderators for utilising their forums amazingly, I think for the first time in a long, long time there was one or two weeks where EVERY forum involved did over 20 posts in that week or something!

Most of all, thank you to Sam (UltraME!) for thinking of this game. It really brought the forum together and ended up being a massive success. Thank you <3

This has been one of the best games I've taken part in on the forum. It's been really exciting throughout and has been both a fun bit of competition and a celebration of the incredible music of our AFs.

I'd be interested in seeing this return some time next year, perhaps where you're not allowed to use the same songs again. That could throw in some surprises!

It has seriously been a long time since a new idea has captivated so much of the forum including those (like myself) that don't venture into them much and bring such a community spirit to the AFs, this really was exactly what was needed to revitalise this part of the forum and as a member of mgmt, I can't express my gratitude enough. It's been excellently ran and great fun, bravo all round *.*

Thanks for doing this, obviously my taste doesn't align perfectly with those from the AFs but I always found enough songs to vote for and it's been great to see so many people get involved with this.

And with the extra forums that we've added/probably likely to add by that point. Very interesting and exciting to think about. biggrin.gif

it would be interesting to see if the ones on top can stay there and the ones who were eliminated early would get some redemption (if they last that long, that is)

The forums that left early on may still have their big hitters left (like Madonna has) but they'd still need to find songs to use early on before getting to the later rounds. The likes of Britney may have used a lot of their big songs but still have plenty of decent sized hits that could see them through the rounds. Very interesting!

'Toxic' is an excellent winner wub.gif the only song I like more from all of the AFs involved is 'Viva Forever' by the Spice Girls. Echoing all of the praise for this idea as it's been a roaring success. I'd definitely look forward to a second edition next year now I can actually help out with Ariana laugh.gif

Well done Britney cheer.gif

Amazing idea this was Sam - would be amazing to see it brought back with a pumped up, upgraded 2.0 edition too! Exciting times ahead for the AF Hub biggrin.gif

Massive thanks to Sam, one of the best ideas I’ve seen on the board and it showed with the great response it recieved!

The end destination was probably inevitable but some interesting twists and turns on the path that led us there! Would have been good to see how Ariana would have actually done.

Also still find it funny that Zara went through all those rounds and got knocked out with Symphony!!

Woulda been interesting to see if Gaga would have got to the final if it wasn't for the Little Mix alias accounts!

But yeah, echoing what everybody else is saying in regards to how much fun this has been. A huge thank you to everybody for hosting it!

Very pleased with that winner and this contest has really reminded what a stellar discography she has.

A big thank you to everyone involved in this project, especially the AF Inner Circle! Very well presented & carried throughout its duration. Has been a really fun contest to observe & partake in.

I'm cry.gif that Spice Girls didn't go far enough to use Viva Forever! Maybe Maz & I should have gone with that over Goodbye and possibly lasted one more round. Although if we'd done that, it probably would have been RIP to Girls Aloud at that stage. ohmy.gif

The alias accounts were made on the same day of the Quarter Finals (the round after). So it wouldn't have been them. Gaga was losing (by some distance) from very early stages, she overtook and LM re-overtook and led all the way til the end, after both forums had done their best to entice people to vote.

Yeahhhh very exciting things in the future to look forward to here in the AF Hub. If y'all have any ideas, and even host your own, let one of us Inner Circle mods know and we will come together and let y'all know when it could be possible biggrin.gif

Don't feel like you have to be AF IC mod to run AF contests and games etc.. Bring the idea to us and we will help you launch it biggrin.gif
