After the relative excitement of Erasure versus Kraftwerk yesterday, this seems a good time to take a quick breather. The last week has seen us work through the group of 16 and half of the quarter finals, so we now know half of our semi-finalists. We’ve had a number of shocks and surprises, and there are two quarter finals left:
- Pet Shop Boys versus Air, which will be played tomorrow
- David Bowie versus New Order, coming up on Wednesday
So this is what the semi-finals look like right now:
- Depeche Mode versus Erasure, which will be on Thursday
- Pet Shop Boys or Air, versus David Bowie or New Order, on Friday
Hopefully Depeche Mode‘s match against Erasure won’t involve another penalty shoot-out, as Erasure‘s last two games have been thrilling, nail-biting, events. Would have been, anyway, if this contest were actually of any interest to anybody.
Saturday will see the battle for third and fourth place, and the all-unimportant final is this Sunday. So let’s enter the last week of this “thrilling” competition, and see how it all pans out.
