I read on the other thread that Mofo was ranked 16 and Zoo 17.

But that is only based on the performance of the two songs in the second round.

Right, but which had more votes in that round (since there's no tie-breaker in this head-to-head round)?

Before anyone asks, in the event of a tie, the song which polled the most votes in the whole tournament will go through.

So which of these songs has had the most votes?

Mofo got 35 votes in the first two rounds and Zoo Station got 38 votes.

Interesting!  This could stay interesting right up to the close...

Well it means if there's a tie, Zoo Station goes through.

I have to go back and read your seeding notes to Droo. If Zoo was a lower seed, yet it had more votes, I need to look at the process again.  ;)

My guess would be that these songs appeared in different groups last time.  An advancing vote number from one particular group could have been lower than an advancing number from another group.  I haven't been watching the numbers that closely (that's where the beauty of Mr. TD comes into play) but I'd suppose the number of voters is not 100% consistent across groups.

I like your explanation and I'm tired and I don't want to figure it out. Perfect! Thanks, Blue! AGAIN!  ;)

To clarify; the seeds for this round were determined by how many votes they polled in their second round groups (and for those songs with the same number of votes in the second round, the song with the most votes polled in the first round determined which song was awarded the higher seeding.)

But, in the event of a tie breaker in every round from this one on, the total votes the two tied songs polled throughout the whole tournament will determine which song progresses on to the next round.

You are kidding me. I don't dislike Mofo but Zoo Station should kill this poll.

Mofo looks like it's just pipped Zoo Station to the post.

Can't complain.
