This will be done with a traditional tournament, single elimination, one-on-one, using our 32 remaining songs. I have seeded them randomly. We will do a do a standard tournament until we have 8 left, and then I will post a place to vote to save two of the 24 losers for the final round.

An update on what is coming next in the tournament:
There will be a round where we decide to save two songs from those eliminated in this Round. Once we have our final ten, a new style of tournament will begin to decide the #1!
