Another massive voting turnout, with around 500 votes for each tie on average, compared with half of that figure in the previous tournament four years ago. If you’d based your predictions for each tie on how well the songs did in the Baguette Dilemma Round, you’d have got almost every winner. But that’s for the post-tournament analysis. In the meantime, soak up the results and look forward to some excruciating ties in the last 16. Here’s the draw for that one. Comments, howls of outrage and commiserations in the comments below.
