Man, I can’t tell you guys enough just how tough some of these mixes were to judge. We had some VERY difficult calls to make. Keep in mind, this was done tournament style. We took the overall rankings based on community voting and placed them in this format…
1 vs 16
2 vs 15
6 vs 11
Based on past experience from the old Recording Review days, this makes for some fun times for judges and contestants. You end up with some surprises, but it also makes things really challenging for everyone. In light of that, just know that if you didn’t make the Elite 8, it wasn’t because your mix wasn’t awesome. We had some EXTREMELY close votes. You should all be quite proud of the work you did. And keep in mind, the winner of the judging may or may not be the ultimate prize winner(s).
