I am so sorry for the delay in posting. I had to take a day off from the library so I could go see the new Harry Potter movie. Yes, I squee'd after the Ginny/Harry kiss and I cried at the end when everyone at Hogwarts raised their wands to the sky. Sniff, sniff, waaaaaahhh!
So Thursday was the day for Round Three - The Sweet Sixteen! I surprised everyone with a double battle day. We also battled Round Four - The Elite Eight.
We're now down to the Final Four, which will take place next Thursday at the FLYP Finale before the No Contest Talent Contest. What's your talent? I might read a poem.
We had some amazing surprises and upsets in the last two rounds!!!
Sweet Sixteen Battles:
Dorothy Gale in a surprise upset moved on past Spider Man!
Phineas & Ferb used their imaginations again to out-wizard Snape!
Much to the dismay of the tween girls, Aslan (loud cheers from the kids in the front) sent Edward home to Forks.
Hermione! Hermione! Hermione! Girls ruled and Bill Nye the Science Guy was out.
We had to count the vote twice, and though some wild fans screamed NO!, Pikachu cuted it up and Indiana Jones was done.
The Queen of the Library heavily campaigned for her, but Alice in Wonderland was no match for our friend and library-visitor, Curious George!
The vote was clear. The voices were heard. SpongeBob is king! Bella is sent following Edward back to Forks.
Again, there wasn't much of a fight for this battle. Harry Potter is really The Chosen One. Lyra got in Lee Scoresby's air ship and floated back to Oxford.
Elite Eight Battles:
We were amazed how far Dorothy went in the Showdown, but her battles are over. Phineas & Ferb are going to the Final Four!
This was a squeaker! We had to recount the votes a few times. Sadly, the smartest girl wizard is done. We love you, Hermione, but Aslan is an amazing character. He goes on!
Oh the mighty cute have fallen! The monkey wins the battle! Pikachu goes home to Ash. Curious George is a Final Four contender!
And this was one of the toughest-judged battles so far...Harry Potter vs SpongeBob. There was drama, there was yelling. We had to use the whistle to calm everyone down. And the decision? SpongeBob!!!
So there you go! Your Final Four in The Ultimate Showdown:
Phineas & Ferb vs Curious George
Aslan vs SpongeBob Squarepants
Could YOU have predicted this? I know I couldn't have!
See you next week when we reveal the ULTIMATE CHAMPION!!!
