FANTASY: MTV World Cup of Rock 2010 (Poll closed!)
Match-up #3 FINAL: S. Korea (RAIN) 91.5% of the vote versus USA (Taylor Swift, Kings of Leon, Paramore) 8.5%
Match-up #2 FINAL: S. Korea (RAIN) 95.2% of the vote versus S. Africa (Dave Matthews) 4.8%
Match-up #1 FINAL: S. Korea (RAIN) 90.7% of the vote versus England (Coldplay) 9.3%
Well, gee. Rain’s got to be through to the Final 8 knockout round with that kind of lead in all three matches. For sure. The question, though, is how will he be seeded? In what position will he be placed? There were a couple of other teams who also blew their opponents out with high percentages a time or two, like the US and Japan. And I’m dying to know where my motherland will be placed; though I support Rain with everything in me, I do want the US to make a good showing, but their scores are too varied to help me predict anything…
All shall be revealed this morning (Thursday) in the MTV Newsroom blog’s World Cup of Rock coverage. See you then.
