Round 1.5

 

First of all, thank you to everyone who has participated so far and thanks to the mods for quickly locking the old threads. In this round we start the process of bringing back songs from the dead. This is sort of a side process for eliminated songs. After round 3, we will be down to 18 songs, but two songs eliminated in either round 1, 2, or 3 will be brought back into the competition at this point to create a top 20. All song duplicates, i.e. "rooms" versions, will not be eligible to be brought back.

 

From each section rank 4 songs 1 - 4 to determine points awarded.

1) 3 points

2) 2 points

3) 1 point

4) .5 points

 

Two songs from each section will be brought back to compete for a chance to return later on. Songs are listed in the groups they were eliminated in, with Groups A-D in Section X and Groups E-H in Section Y. Just to clarify, the groups are there simply to keep things organized, they aren't important for voting. All that matters is that you rank 4 from each section.
