  2. For my part I I try to be extremely objective so I listened to all the songs 3 times, every song was ranked on criteria such as vocal, music, rhythym, lyrics, language, That ended the first round. I made then the first cut and songs with fewer points were eliminated (I kept 23 songs : 12+11). The best 6 on points qualified directly to Semifinals. The rest had to pass through the second round of listening (twice or 3 times depending if songs are still tied) then I had my 17 semifinalists. The third rounds of listening determined the first finalists, an additional fourth round (Round robin ) was necessary to confirm positions and determine the remaining finalists. But i had 4 reserve songs I liked on positions 13 to 16 I have to eliminated one of them As you see it was the longest listening period i had and yes it's stressing me lol

  10. Final Standing available here Ufilov hckosice Henry_Leon Congratulations to our first rugby contest winner of the year ! Congratulations @hckosice ! Congratulations team Slovakia ! The three medalists have been decided on the very last day of the contest, furthermore only 4 points separate Bronze medalist from Gold medalist and only 9 points separate the winner frm 6th place ! This is by far the toughest contest this year ! The battle for gold included many players. @hckosice and @Ufilov where at the top from the start on day 1 sharing first place as a sign of what's going to happen next. @hckosice dropped in next 3 days to 5th then and 8th place before going back to 6th and jumping to first position during Day 5 and Day 6. On Day 7 he dropped to 4th place due to a zero points then he jumped again to first place along with @Henry_Leon before finally keeping the leadearship to himself. Well played @hckosice ! Congratulations to you and to Slovakia for your first medal of the year Although making an optimal start occupying first successively first and second places on the first three days of the contest, @Ufilov falled to 10th position during Day 4 he gradually climbed back the ranking to 9th then 7th before finishing strongly with two days in a row in 3rd position (Day 7 and Day 8) and a Silver medal on last day. Congratulations @Ufilov for your second silver medal of the year Congratulations to team Poland for a 4th podium this and for a 3rd silver medal. Being out of top 10 on the first two days of the contest didn't prevent @Henry_Leon from getting bronze on last day; On day 3 he finished 7th and progressed day after day (5th then 4th) before jumping to 2nd then first position on days 7 and 8. Unfortunately for him he dropped to 3rd place. But it's still a medal Congratulation Henry and Italy for their first medal of the year ! Fourth-placed duet, @dcro from Croatia and @africaboy from Romania, weren't far from a medal since they were only 3 points shorter than Bronze medalist Henry_Leon , same goes for LDOG in his first participation finishing 6th at 5 points from a potential medal. Another italian @SteveParker was always on top 4 or 5 and even toop first place on days 4 and 7 before falling at the end to finish 8th. Team Italy with 3 players and Romania with 2 in top 10 were particularey brilliant Special mention to @africaboy , @Gianlu33 and @Dunadan who got most perfect prediction with 2 games out of 15. This contest was very interesting for me, it was thrilling from the beginning until the end with changes on the table on every day. I hope you enjoyed it ! See you in next contests ! Now please stand up for the national anthem of Slovakia !

Number or perfect predictions throughout the contest will be compared for the involved contestants. If they are still tied, number of second best scores will be compared, then number of third best results and so on. Example Contestant 1: 3x30, 2x29, 2x28, 2x27 Contestant 2: 3x30, 2x29, 2x28, 1x27 Contestant 1 will be placed ahead of Contestant 2. Contestant with most points wins the competition.

  13. I watched the game from the start and I can tell you Sevilla were lucky not having so many yellow and red cards + many fouls not given for Leicester City, Jamy Vardy missed the 3-0 chance and he started punching himself ... hopefullly they qualified and didn't need the help of the referee and Kasper Schmeichel saving another penalty under the watch of his father Peter . And about Sevilla they can only blame theirselves especially with Nasri two stupid yellow cards . Now good luck to the Foxes whoever the oppenent will be they had a dream season so far and the dream is about to continue for two more games
