Song! Challenge! #6: All At Once / RESULTS

Thanks to everyone who played this week's Song! Challenge! Big ups to Bill and Sacha, who championed through the chaos and the frustration and the noise to emerge victorious.

Here are the standings, as judged by me:
  • Ninth Place: Michelle with 2 out of 18
  • Eighth Place: Gus with 3 out of 18
  • Seventh Place: Amy Bridges with 3 out of 18 (submitted before Gus's entry)
  • Sixth Place: Amy Ketner Gunn with 4 out of 18
  • Fifth Place: Brooke with 4 out of 18 (submitted before Amy's entry)
  • Fourth Place: Amanda and Ryan with 9 out of 18
  • Third Place: Meana (presumably without the DePauw kids this time) with 10 out of 18
  • Second Place: Last Week's Winners Dave and Lisa with 11 out of 18
  • First Place: Sacha and Bill with 13 out of 18
Hopefully we're still friends, y'all! Haha, that was a tough one, right?

As always, three things to remember:
  • The judge's decision is final, so let it go. I mean, if I've miscounted, feel free to let me know, and I'll update the standings, but my (lenient) calls stand in each case.
  • The first prize is dinner at my house (which will probably end up being some sort of take-out, anyway) and the chance to pick a song for me to make a video of, so no big whoop.
  • Everyone who entered gets an e-mail, coming soon (probably early next week), with a super-secret link to a video of me doing something random (in this case, videoizing whichever song Bill & Sacha pick from the songs below). Players, watch for your e-mail soon. Be advised that I will likely be placing the video here on the blog a few days after you get the link, so if you want to feel like you're getting the special sneak preview, you'll want to click that link and watch it quickly.

Thanks again to everyone for playing. Check back here at 7pm EDT on Saturday for this week's Song! Challenge! The theme is "Wuv...twue wuv" -- how many song lyrics containing the word "LOVE" can you identify? (Awwwww!)

And they'll be played one at a time this time. It's SIGNIFICANTLY easier, so you'll want to be here right at 7pm to claim your prize. Also, courtesy of Chris Theisen at B Creative Images, the prize in the next contest is a Restaurants.com gift certificate valued at $10! (Oooooh! You want that.)

See ya Saturday at 7pm EDT!

Actually, with Wendy, JC & Alison from DePauw and my mom! I started the song challenge over the weekend and it was so hard my mom suggested I get additional help!

I would like to inquire about my "everybody wins" prizes allegedly being delivered to my inbox. I haven't gotten one since the Miley Cyrus perfomance, so if there have been others, I am being left off your participant email list!

Despite numerous promptings, Jon and Jenny did not select a song for me to videoize, so I have not had anything to send out yet!

Dave and Lisa have chosen their song, so I'll be working on that this week, and I anxiously await Bill and Sacha's pick, as well. So there are two, maybe 3 (if I just choose one myself) that I owe ya. Coming soon!!!
