Throwing all my support behind a Roger Sanchez win! wub.gif My favourite song of all-time.

I'd expect nothing less than a 'Bad Romance' or 'Toxic' win but both are amazing so I would be okay with that.

13. Spice Girls - Wannabe




Total Score: 59
Total Votes: 13
Average Score per Vote: 4.54 [18th]

Next out is in fact the earliest song of all to feature in the final. Winner of Now 34, Wannabe was an early leading contender but it's votes & therefore score dried up in the mid to late stages.

11. Kelly Clarkson - Since U Been Gone




Total Score: 61
Total Votes: 14
Average Score per Vote: 4.36 [21st]
Highest Score: 10 (Ultraviolence1989)


Just missing the top 10 is the Now 62 champion, Since U Been Gone. In contrast to the previous track it was a very frequent scorer, picking up exactly half of the total entrants' votes but ended 4th last in average scorers chart thus meaning it just falls short of the elite bracket.
