@ZackTeibloom Round one is in the books. We saw one #1 seed go down, but the selection committee suspects foul play and it is under review. More on that in a minute. Cee-Lo took sent the “Underdog” Spoon home, The Black Keys took this “One” from Yeasayer, Broken Bells beat Arcade Fire on a foundation of “Lies,” Robyn didn’t let anyone f’ing tell her what to do, no matter what a Big Boi they were. They weren’t dancing on their own, but LCD Danced themselves clean passed the dirty “Blue Blood Blues.” Antoine had nowhere to hide as A-trak “Duck Sauce”‘d all over his face. Even a weekend full of vampires couldn’t beat the Local Natives and Kanye ate the Gorillaz and their “Superfast Jellyfish” dicks for breakfast.
To recap without puns, the Round One Winners Are: Cee-Lo, The Black Keys, Broken Bells, Robyn, LCD Soundystem, A-Trak, Local Natives, Kanye
I bet you’re wondering who’s winning the brackets? It’s a tight race, with 6/8 being the top score and we are the three who decided the brackets, but the points double every round. I swear we didn’t cheat. But someone did. And we won’t stand for it…
Scoreboard after Round 1:
Here’s the deal with the cheating. Rob admitted he did something to mess with the results of Arcade Fire vs. Broken Bells. If he had just petitioned a bunch of people to vote, that’s one thing. That’s part of the game. He says he did something else to mess with the results, and, since Arcade Fire still ended up with more votes than any other song in the contest, we’re going to allow it to be voted on along with Broken Bells and Robyn. It’s a nice little three-way match-up with Arcade Fire as our wild card! Stay tuned. New poll back tomorrow for Boxing Day. Merry Christmas.
