  2. The Washington state votes from Walla Walla, WA have just been sent.
    Good luck, everyone! 🙂


  3. The Louisiana jury based at Lafayette, the city where the Zydeco music was developed – in other words our entry – will be hear the songs for the last time today and cast its votes soon afterwards.


  4. Louisiana has just voted 😉

    PREDICTION (really tough):

    Most likely in top10 (and eventual winner bar Washington and Pennsylvania)

    New Jersey, California, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Washington and Florida

    Likely in top10:

    Hawaii, Ohio, North Carolina and Alaska

    Possibly in top10-12:

    Ontario, Quebec, New York, Louisiana, British Columbia.


    • I’m alive, thanks. 🙂 I’ve just been busy with uni work. However, there really isn’t much to say. The voting period is open and the seven people on the list are the only ones who have voted yet. So, until the 4th of October, it will be pretty quiet around here.


  5. Florida just cast its vote. Here is how the songs in the top ten were scored:

    12/12, 10/12, 8/12, 8/12, 8/12, 8/12, 7/12, 7/12, 7/12, 6/12

    As for predictions, I reckon it will be Massachusetts, although Ontario and New York have dark horse potential.


  6. I really hope that all 24 HoDs will get to vote IN time. I don’t like to see any getting disqualified because they forgot to cast their vote like some did in the previous edition of FdlC 😦


  7. There are less than 72 hrs left till voting dead line and only half of the participants have cast their votes. Should I start worry?
    What’s wrong with you ppl?! 😦


    • If more than half of these people do not cast their votes then the next time we should cut the voting period shorter.
