  1. I like all six of them. But it would be between “The Only Thing”, “Calaverita” and “Still Your Girl” for me. The video for “Broken Hearts/Bones” is very touching.
    Nice to see Noe Venable there hosting.
    That amphitheatre looks so damn fantastic btw.
    Good luck, Patrick!

    Btw, I bought Noe’s “Juniper” today with a bunch of other songs. All in all I spent more than 100 euros …

    • Fleurie, my marginal favorite of the group after “The Only Thing,” actually went and stole the win at the last second.
      It seemed like it was going to be between Fleurie and Parlour Tricks for a long time, as neither of them ever got a 2 point score and seemed to be getting more top points than the others. However, a brief slowdown seemed to doom her before a last second recovery.

  9. I wasn’t able to be here for the results.😦 I suspected Fleurie would win and I said so in the e-mail I sent. She got my 8 pts, so not too Bad as far as I am concerned. Good luck, USA!
