That was really good advice in the judge's letter to go back through with the new interface and weed some things out. In the category I love I cut the tracks by at least half. I think of Simon telling that one girl this year she couldn't win. Nothing personal, she was great, but the competition was just better.

There was a lot of stuff I was like - ack! why did I pick that - and then there were many things I was like - you know, that's better then I thought...the top stuff is a lot more even now in my mind - many strong contenders...I'm really proud of my special picks! This one category is gonna rock! name is Doug
