    I unsuccessfully tried to retweet your tweet with link to this post. Am I still blocked?

    I see there are some keen Italian followers here! (qualcuno che vive a Roma e ha voglia di suonare, cantare insieme?!)

    Felt sad having to vote for just one – so enjoyed listening to them all. Fantastic idea, Al – you’re a star!

    (Yes, Jontom is out of this world…pity there’s only one choice)

    does anybody notice something weird in the votes?!

    For having no fanbase at all, Sanford and Song have done incredibly well. Congratulations! You guys are the winners in my eyes.

  12. Jay February 21st, 2014 2:24 pm

    Can’t vote. I love them all!

  13. Jontom February 23rd, 2014 3:28 pm

    Hey there!

    Wow… first I want to say it’s great to be featured overthere amongst so many great acts! It’s something that made me day once I discovered my video up there and still makes me happy every time I think of it! I checked all the videos over and over and really got hooked by many of them… Really guys, incredibile works by all the contestants.

    Al, thank you so much for the opportunity. This means A LOT for us… being able to reach a new audience is really important and last but not least, being able to discover great music is not an easy task. All I can say is “grazie di cuore” :)

    Well, there’s no denying the hometown crowd went absolutely ape with their support for the vid I did with Tesia and Adrien. The link I posted a week ago got passed around and around and AROUND…everyone was talking ukulele vids it seemed. Definitely did not see that coming, and the support friends and followers showed is very heartwarming. Although if this vote truly is over as I write, it does feel somewhat bittersweet. Jontom is truly an ass kicker on the instrument, and seems a very dedicated ambassador in proving that the ukulele should be taken seriously…and that I should keep practicing.

    Same here Sanford: when I posted the link the guys started to posted it everywhere. I mean… EVERYWHERE. They were literally mad about it: someone took it personally, other ones got to know me for the first time. It’s nice to see our works can move people and to me, I couldn’t be happier. You guys absolutely deserved the first spot, I hope to see you live sooner or later.
