Oh, I'm so happy that Gerry won. I had considered entering but then got to the entry page and read Gerry's song in the comments. Decided my brain space was more happily used mulling over his song than working on something of my own. Congrats, Gerry!

Howdy, where are the whole performances? The first three not at all and the winner doesn't get to sing the whole song? Not good for those who had to work and not see the live stream.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank Brian, Faith, and Mo for their feedback and thoughtful comments. It was a little intimidating to be there in front of the pros, but I really enjoyed participating and they were very kind. I hope that in the future WNYC is able to do more humorous segments like this.

I also wanted to congratulate Gerry on his win-- I really enjoyed his song. Kudos to Erin and Charles too, they were able to write excellent follow-up pieces with very limited time.

WNYC, do more funny stuff!

Quinn Raymond really was the strongest contestant and the audience thought so too. I'm surprised they didn't applaud louder for Erin Slattery.
