Here we are the final round! The Head to Head round to see who will get the GRAND WINNER banner! This has been a fantastic contest, and I hope that you all have had as much fun dancing and sing, as much as I have! Sometimes we have thoughts of a contest, and really don't know how it is going to turn out. This one was better then I could have hoped for! If it wasn't for all of you, this contest wouldn't have been what it was. So for that a huge hug and thank you to each and everyone one of you! Much love.
 
Please remember, if you don't make it to the top 5, that doesn't mean that the contest is done. I will still need everyone to come back and vote on the final 5 so we can get the Grand Winner. Also in my contest, everyone gets a banner, so make sure that once this round is finished, you all come back and get your placement banners.
 


I don't normally do this for my Head to Head rounds, but doing something a little different this time. If you remember I had asked for the year of everyone's birth. I took all the years and found the average year............. 1963. So for this challenge let's finish up this contest with more dance tunes, however, you get the choice of doing a song from 1963 OR a song from 2000-present. NO DUETS, and NO HARMONY.

Morning! Congratulations Top Five! I'll be listening!

Just heard on the news someone tried to run over a 9' tall snowman in someone's yard. They see the tracks. No vehicle. But the snowman was built over a huge tree stump. Boom! LOL!

I'll bet that hit hard for a snowman!

Thanks so much for the advance - it's been a fun challenge with amazing talent all around. Now to search for a smokin' boogie tune

Might as well get this head to head round started. From the 2000's to the 2010's, two culturally iconic occurrences were the rise of the small c-conservative middle class in the US as depicted in the very funny Hank Hill in "King of the Hill" and the rising talents of Bruno Mars (influenced by MJ and Prince). My interpretation of the 2000's is with this dance hit from 2014 juxtapositioned with the perplexed All-American Hank Hill.

Thank you so much for the advance ladies and gentlemen. The further up in 2000 puts me out of my comfort zone. So to searching I go!!!!

Reply by MgSactoGOLD

Whew .......... what a relief ....

With my birth year of 1947 I was thinking I was going to have to find a song from that year ...
and .......... that would have been a challenge in and of itself ........

Soooo ... yay for the average at 1963 ...... That at least puts me in my teenager years ...
I should be able to find something we can dance to ...

Good morning! Blew my truck engine in my '94 Chevy Silverado work pickup yesterday so I'm home again today for the latest snow storm. It only had 261,000 miles on it. I knew it was going. Got another one to put in, only 160,000 miles. I plan ahead. LOL!

Going to listen to the ones that are in! Have a good one everybody!

Sorry . Ive taken so long, been out of town, just got back. Im also having a time finding a song. So off I go to try find one.

Reply by ChoctawwomanGOLD

I have so enjoyed all the songs in " Dancing Thru The Decades". I remember doing the "Bunny Hop. Stroll, and the Twist thru my early years. Loved the "Rock & Roll era and yes even "Saturday Night Fever" , the Disco music and the Disco dances, still love Disco music. Now at this stage of my life, I'm into the Country music and the 2-step(slow and fast with all the turns) Waltzes, AND the Boot Scootin(Line Dancing) which I do often.
So I chose a song you can 2-step too or Line dance. I hope you enjoy the song I chose.

I will be out for part of the day tomorrow 1/19. So if all the songs come in we will be able to start our voting. For this voting it will be much easier. I just need who you thought the top singer was out of the five. I do not need you to list everyone like I had you do in the other rounds. Also the top 5 DO NOT VOTE!!!

Hi everyone....sorry I'm late.
Finally got my cable to co-operate. We've had high winds with this front that moved in and the cable kept going out, so I decided to try this morning. And here I am! Success!

An excellent contest through the decades and great to see and hear the diversity in genres of dance music through the ages. Everyone who participated definitely made these songs ageless and timeless. Thanks to Cherice for organizing and making this a knee-slappin', toe tappin' and a what's happenin' good time

Sorry guys, was kind of MIA today. Had a funeral to go to and then to go visit the mother in law at the hospital. I will be sending out reminders to those that were in the contest to make sure they come and get their listens in. I did mine and wow did you bring your A game for this round! Loved them all, and though I just left a basic message and banner, know I wanted to say so much more, but time was limited.

Just waiting to see if 3 more people come by to vote. I can't even post right now because those 3 votes could change so much, it is that close! Even for the other placement banners we have had a few ties. This is the closest contest I have ever had! Great job to all of you! If I don't hear back from them by Deadline, I will be closing the thread at 7p SS time to post the banners!

Here it is the moment you have all worked so hard for. I know I had already said this before, but WOW, this contest was so close for banners. I hope you all had a great time, cause I know, I sure have. You have all been so wonderful, and so supportive not only towards each other, but also for me. For that alone, I can't thank you all enough! So without waiting any longer, Here are all your banners. Great job everyone!
 
Until next time..........................
