  2. Just a little note:
    I used random.org to make this running order, and I don’t think that it could have made a running order than better highlighted each individual song. It’s so balanced visually and musically.

  3. On the last day of voting:

    1: 74
    2: 71
    3: 68
    4: 65
    5: 63
    6: 60
    7: 52
    8: 42

    One set of votes could still lead to victory for the top 3 songs, and two sets of votes could still give a victory to any of the top 6.
