I'm surprised Roy's picking skills are still (barely) holding the lead against Cornell's. Two solid acoustic covers here.

The segment of Roy's video from around 1:00ish to 1:30ish is just unbelievable.

Really shocked Roy lost here. Thought we would see Hey Jude vs Malaguena match up. It would have been one for the ages.

We should have. No wonder lipp won the last tournament... Sniping poll selections in the 11th hour to make sure his selection won.

Shameful. Downright shameful.
