"Thank you everyone for all the hard work! It has been so much fun to hear all of the music; I have been listening to these songs for days and days, and even for someone who listens to hundreds of songs a year, this became a huge challenge. It took many listens before I decided, and it was very, very tough. In the end, what was most important to me was the song and the emotional spirit. Congratulations to all 25 finalists. Amazing job!"
