    you guys can't just randomly vote to nix a song that won its battle lol that's not how tournaments work

    the only suitable option is to create a loser's bracket of some sort where losers can compete against other losers for redemption

    Not even I would be that shady. I can admit Genie is a certified bawp. (and I even voted for it )

    I like benutty's idea (although would it mess up the brackets?).

    Are you suggesting something akin to Olympic judo tournaments?

    sio and I actually tried building a loser's bracket the other day and it basically doubles the amount of match-ups we'd have to vote for so i'm not sure what he's doing to decide. loser's brackets in general are a form of tournament called "double elimination" where every team has to lose twice in order to be eliminated. losing one game drops you down into a loser's bracket against other losers and that tournament builds toward one winner that eventually goes against the main bracket winner for the championship (in a sports tournament that loser's bracket winner has to beat the main bracket winner twice in order to claim the championship though)

    that seems to be a modified double elimination tournament, yes. there are many ways to do it.

    My reco will definitely revolve around the idea that both would get in (as how it should be because they both got the exact number of votes):

    Then

    a. either have one bracket with three options
    b. or have a losers round where all 18 songs will compete in just one poll, highest vote getter advances to the next round with all those who won. Whether this could be in a single or multiple votes allowed type (like, choose three from these) etc.

    I don't think we should eliminate anything but if we could it would be the Shania song. It's clear there was very little support behind it and someone had to advance

    RESULTS

    Thanks for your patience!

    The results of this poll have shooketh me to my core.

    Britney and Lauryn dueled to the death, 48-48.

    This actually a really tough call, with good and convincing arguments made on both sides (and a last-minute plea via rep!), but I've decided to cast my tie-breaking vote for Britney.

    However, like a craven reality show producer (and because some of these songs are just too good to say goodbye to yet!), I have decided to create an SOS: Save Our Songs! second chance bracket, where some of the previously eliminated contenders will battle for the chance to return to the competition at a latter stage.

    #TheDramaNeverDies

    THE VERDICT IS IN!

    LESSER ACTRESSES WILL PAY FOR
    THEIR CRIMES AGAINST CINEMA
