What’s going on? NOT ONE AMERICAN OR BRIT OR FRENCH DJ is amongst the Top 3 prize winners from Round 1 and 2. Anyone figure this out? The answer must be simply that CHILE, SINGAPORE, PORTUGAL, ITALY, SPAIN AND ECUADOR have thrilled the public and the pro judges more than DJs from the nations that normally lead the way. One round to go….will we yet see the mighty America, the Great Britain or the Fantastic French coming through to lead in this final Round 3…? The next round is the last round in 2012. 30 gladiators of the groove will enter the Final with a full 6 minute set and let me forewarn you, no matter who finished where in the three Rounds, the last hurdle will be like the Grand National with hot favourites falling and a last stretch chase for the line.
Good luck my friends.
Tony Prince.

    I’d argue that this system of voting places a huge advantage on those with high friend, follower and fan counts and awards DJs based on popularity rather than skill. The fact that the judges can only decide the 4th to 10th place means that the top three positions (which get all the prizes) are usually not as strong as the 4th, 5th and 6th positions skill wise. There are people much lower in public votes than me that I would be happy to have ahead of me at this moment because they demonstrated great all round skill in their routines. I don’t see this in the majority of those with the highest vote positions at the moment. DJ Falcon and Deejay Datflex’s submissions are examples of outstanding routines with very low public votes and will likely go through from the judge vote in 4th and 5th place, but won’t be recieving any prizes this round because this system is awarding based on popularity, not skill.
