Westlife UK #1 Singles Smackdown, Final Winner!!!
(Revisit Round 1, Round 2, Round 3, and Round 4)
Believe it or not, I never would have bet on this single for our winner . . .
Flying without Wings = 1 Vote
Uptown Girl = 7 Votes
When You're Looking Like That = 1 Vote
I blame all the real Westlife fans who showed up by the score (or so my stats counter tells me) then left without casting a single vote. ;-) But don't let me rain on our winner's victory post . . .
It was tough to find a good Uptown Girl performance I haven't embedded yet. I went with the one from the Turnaround tour, for the cute little tweaks they added to it. I will probably be keeping my distance from this song for the next couple of months (LOL!), but I'd like this strangely fresh-sounding version to be the last one echoing in my ears.
(Besides, unlike the completely different and almost dapper arrangement I was planning to share until I watched it again this evening . . . they're obviously singing live in this one. And I like that very much.)
Before you go to the winner announcement you have really been waiting for, I want to thank all of you for participating in both my annual June Giveaway and this completely random smackdown. I appreciated every vote more than you will ever know. And I wish I could give everyone the gift of a great book.
But alas, there can be only one . . .

It seems we have a theme going, because I never would have predicted this winner, either! =D
Or did I??? Remember what I was just saying about anyone being lucky enough to win the whole thing with only the freebie entry? That's what Cathy L. has done!
Congratulations, Cathy! I'll be e-mailing you shortly. =)
