I sent Shireblogger a Pleasant Surprise and an Unpleasant Surprise, but I think on reflection the really unpleasant surprise was that there was one song that was so awful I couldn't even finish it.
The song I couldn't finish was 'Humble'. Sorry to whoever submitted it but I was pretty sure by two thirds in it wasn't getting any better.
I don't want to spoil my votes or the results show, but let's just say that if 'Shape of You' does win it won't have been thanks to me.
I thought 'Symphony' or 'Feel It Still' might win.
I pretty much echo everything you've said there. I really tried to like Humble but it just wasn't for me at all I'm afraid... and 'Shape of you' is the one I thought was really overrated - I much prefer 'Castle on the hill'.
I'd add Rag N Bone Man as a possible winner though - even over 'Symphony'.

It is time, once again, to hear the thoughts of Time Machine Dog:
Henlo frens. I Time Machine Dog and I do another hecking speculate. I luvs all the songs in this round tho one song had lots of naughty words and if I sez naughty words I would get in lots of troubles but I am a good dog so I don't say naughty words.

I'm unlikely to have beaten my best or gone lower than my worst, I have finished 2nd in one round and bottom in another, and probably will not be first this round or bottom with a lower score than before.
smokeyb has been near the middle a lot so is more likely to be on one of those lists.

Good evening everyone. I hope you're all wrapped up well tonight.
We had 22 entrants plus one non-entrant voter - PurpleCareBear - for this round.
Two songs were duplicated, and both were decided on a coin toss.
The final results split as follows:- - a clear winner - a very tight bunch vying for second place, with 2nd to 9th separated by just 26 points. All of them scored over 200 points, which is a higher number than in any previous round. - 9 songs in mid-table, between 115 and 176 points - 4 laggards, all below 100 points
