My vote is for Ievan Polkka because it has STRUCTURE and the steps are good just like the song. Wheras, bad songs lend nicely to bad steps. They compliment each other. Crank That was boring and repetitive. I don't care if you were making the dance to the video. You are not as clever as you may think. It might have gotten one laugh and then an awesome delete.

leven polkka was a really good song with really quality steps, while i thought that crank that was a little sparse (song's fault).

Ievan Polkka has creativeness, in steps and graphics. YOUUUUUUUUUUU, despite being a really bad song [choice], has steps that like everyone else says... well I'l like to put it in my own words: Just like Poseidon.

Ievan Polkka gets my vote.

Crank That

Both files are excellent but Crank That was really creative and interesting.

Leven Polkka

I absolutely LOVE the song, and Crank that just drives me crazy. I also feel that Leven had better steps overall.

Ievan Polkka

My review clearly states how much I loved this file. Although both Crank Dat and Ievan Polkka didn't impress me with their Heavy charts, Ievan Polkka was presented much better and was an all around better file. However, if this competition were based on Doubles charts, I would in no doubt vote for Crank Dat.

Sorry, Solja Boy. You're not crankin' that (OOOOH!!!) this time.

Crank That was a very experimental choice. While you pulled it off, I don't think it was as good as Ievan Polka, which had the better steps overall, so that gives Ievan Polka the win.

Ievan Polka. Because the banner is <3, the song is <3 and the steps are <3.

IEVAN POLKKA, while a fun song with a strong beat, doesn't take enough chances. There's a lot of same pattern- triples, mostly- and most of the phrases begin and end on quarter notes, with a beat in between. Where it does decide to take chances, it falls short, the 16th runs near the end feeling forced and clunky.

CRANK THAT on the other hand, takes a ton of chances and almost every one pays off. While it has its downsides (the long gap in the middle, needed some side-changing on the characteristic jump sections), it really is the sleeper hit of this contest, in my opinion, the breakout surprise, if you will.

Vote: CRANK THAT

Crank That. So repetitive, but in a way that works, and the result is fun. More creative, too.

Levan Polka is an amazingly fun simfile, but I'm leaning towards Crank That because of its fun doubles steps and risky, yet creative light and standard charts.

3 - Crank That

Levan Polka moves on.
