This new format makes voting even more brutal than ever, have to find room now for both the niche faves and all the obvious big hits laugh.gif lots of songs that I'd usually throw a few points in the 2008 final had to be cut here (mostly female pop songs like 'Hot N Cold', 'Up' and 'Don't Stop The Music' oops)

38 Ladyhawke - My Delirium 216
37 47 Duffy - Mercy 217
36 56 Pussycat Dolls - When I Grow Up 217


Poor Grapevine Fires and "U Wot". Deserved better. Big fall for Hometown Glory, which I saw a lot of low votes for, my +30 in Spiralling still underappreciated but improving one place on last year, and a very strong showing for a Paramore song I don't believe has been in the final before. My Delirium was a final regular but didn't make it in last year.

AUTOQUALIFIERS (not that it matters for 2008)
35 49 Coldplay - Violet Hill 224
34 31 Sara Bareilles - Love Song 224
33 20 Britney Spears - Break The Ice 230
32 27 Fleet Foxes - White Winter Hymnal 235
31 18 Robyn - Be Mine! 236
30 38 Kanye West - Love Lockdown 237
29 23 Beyoncé - If I Were A Boy 242
28 51 T.I. (feat. Rihanna) - Live Your Life 252
27 7 MGMT - Time To Pretend 254
26 24 Dizzee Rascal (feat. Calvin Harris & Chrom3) - Dance Wiv Me 261
25 22 Basshunter - Now You're Gone 274
24 42 Kylie Minogue - Wow 286
23 28 Kings Of Leon - Use Somebody 293
22 14 Saturdays - Up 294
21 17 Elbow - One Day Like This 295

Heartbreak for One Day Like This which is 2 points off of moving on to the next round. Huge fall for the best MGMT track, which swaps places with Kids for the final time. Press M to pay respects. Violet Hill, Love Lockdown, Wow and Live Your Life add themselves into the top 35 to close out 2008's canonical lineup.

SEMI-FINAL QUALIFIERS
20 36 Pendulum - Propane Nightmares 297
19 32 Guru Josh Project - Infinity 2008 298
18 16 MGMT - Kids 298
17 35 Girls Aloud - The Promise 322
16 9 Sam Sparro - Black And Gold 322
15 4 Katy Perry - Hot N Cold 344
14 12 Kings Of Leon - Sex On Fire 353
13 30 Leona Lewis - Run 353
12 21 P!nk - So What 360
11 26 Kelly Rowland - Work 364
10 6 Britney Spears - Womanizer 371
9 5 M.I.A - Paper Planes 376
8 1 Coldplay - Viva La Vida 385
7 13 Madonna (feat. Justin Timberlake) - 4 Minutes 399
6 15 Britney Spears - Piece Of Me 410

However, just scraping in by the skin of its teeth, and I have no idea how it did this, Propane Nightmares moves onto the semi final becoming the first of hopefully not too few nominated tracks to do so! I've had quite the renaissance with it this week and I'm ecstatic that it's done so. Huge improvements for the inferior cover of Run, and Kelly Rowland's Work, while last year's winner Viva La Vida has to be content with 'only' 8th this time. It struggled much more than it did previous years, a shame.

DIRECT FINAL QUALIFIERS
5 11 Estelle (feat. Kanye West) - American Boy 413
4 10 Killers - Human 415
3 3 Rihanna - Disturbia 461
2 8 Rihanna - Don't Stop The Music 504
1 2 Alphabeat - Fascination 531

American Boy and Human are lovely fresh autoqualifiers, yay.

2008 has always had an eclectic bunch of winners. Hot N Cold has been there, Viva La Vida took it a lot of the time, Disturbia's always around, I think something else might have done at one point. But Fascination has never done it. It's been steadily creeping up, getting the silver medal last year, but it was unstoppable this time, overturning the early lead that Don't Stop The Music took earlier in the week with class. SAY. THE. WORD. *.*

'Fascination' is kind of an underwhelming winner, that's probably my least favourite of the Alphabeat songs on the list oops x (I do like all of them though). Coldplay died for this!! Disappointing to see 'Viva La Vida' drop that far, hope it can still make the final anyway... Yayy for The Killers going top 5 and Guru Josh Project and especially Pendulum getting those climbs into the top 20 *.* Has 'Propane Nightmares' ever managed to get past the 2008 final before? I never remember these things x

For all the nothing that it counts for it's nice to see 'Love Lockdown' and 'Violet Hill' becoming moral AQs on their retirement as well as 'White Winter Hymnal' holding onto its place.

If we could swap Human for any of the other songs in the top 10 that'd be a flawless top 5 but YAS Alphabeat *.*

It never has, it's almost always been a track that either scrapes an AQ or is unluckily outside of it. It's a song that tends to attract high scores from less posters which probably means it benefited from the format change.

91 Natasha Bedingfield - Pocketful Of Sunshine 64
78 Jordin Sparks - Tattoo 104
71 Presets - My People 120

Not too bad for my nominations! Wasn't expecting The Presets to do the best of the 3 as it's, I assume, by far the least known, but I suppose it's more likely to be loved; I think it got its 120 points from only 6 voters, which sounds impressive to me.

64 52 Gabriella Cilmi - Sweet About Me 142

I always think this should be doing much better! It feels like exactly the kind of song that would be permanently high up.

Great to see 'Infinity 2008' and 'Work' jump into the top 20! Shame about 'Time To Pretend' crashing but at least they've still got 1 song up there. I don't love 'Viva La Vida' so I can't lie, I'm happy to see a switch-up... but I'm still yet to get into 'Fascination' so idk. Brilliant to have 'Don't Stop The Music' #2 either way heart.gif

Fantastic to see Pendulum & Guru Josh scrape into the Semis!

Not too much else to rave about, a decent top 5 bar American Boy & a pretty surprising winner imo.
