    • Oh really! How fun! ^^ and what a coincidence indeed :O I found them listening to ”Now we are free” Who everybody have heard I guess 😛 And i enjoyed listening through them once again before the competition, these two songs I really like to, but alas I figured that out after the NF was created :/ :

  1. I did not realize people had commented here lol But thank you all who have voted for all the kind words and that you even voted at all hihi ^-^


    • Yeah I do like that one as well ^-^, but I wanted to send something with little more vocals doh 😉


  2. So an update before the very last day to vote is the following: Two songs are now head to head with the exact same points :O while the rermaining one is a little behind, but can still catch up to the rest two, so I need all the votes I can get 🙂

  3. So the Australian final also draws to an end and I gotta say it was a horserace between the three songs all the way, but through a tiebreaker rule I implemented one song made it through alone to Reykjavik and that song is:

    (Drumroll effect) Host of Seraphim! 😀

    Thanks to all the 13 voters for voting and for being annoyingly diverse haha 😉 Even with only three songs :O

    Host of Seraphim: 54
    Sanvean: 54
    Summoning of the Muse: 48

    The full result can be veiwed here, tell me if there is a problem with the link otherwise enjoy:
