- The judging was completely legitimate... there was no pressure or even subtle suggestion who we should "like" by Wynne or anyone else connected with the event.
- All contestants got written notes of constructive, professional feedback and assessment of their songs by 5 pro writers.
- All contestants are treated with decency and respect, no matter how well they write. Actually, we judged demos they had recorded, so there was no "putting them on the spot" and belittling them.
- In doing their demos, the contestants got valuable experience recording their voices. For some, this took courage they had to summon to show their wares in public... and truly be heard.
