It's Intense.

Description:

This 5-week showdown of the best videos on the site is a celebration of the best talent on LVI. While one of these 60 videos will eventually be crowned the best video on LVI, it should be an intense honour to just be listed. The purpose is not just to determine a winner, but to look back on the best videos and enjoy ourselves. But if you made it this far, congratulations, and good luck in the upcoming weeks!

The most unique thng about this tournament is it's not just the council who decides the winner, it's you, our loyal vidders! Anyone with a video that has earned a Council Pick seal may vote in this contest. We've decided the LVI fans have waited long enough for a public vote, and here it is! (don''t screw it up!)

30 of the videos here were hand picked by the council as potential best videos. The other 30 are entries by us and our past council members Jake, Charmax, and Laura. I should add that no prizes will be awarded to the winner, only eternal glory as the best video on a site of hundreds.

We hope to make this an annual event if we get enough participation. A lot of work was put into making this tournament, so make us proud, and vote!

-Hobbes of the LVI Council

Last Round:

The final round was decided, with an unnervingly close vote, and a tiebreaker for second place. The resul;ts were: J/K Trailer - 6 votes, Speed of Sound 5 votes, Nothing Compares to You - 5 votes, Surrender - 3 votes, and My Hero - 0 votes. From there, we held a tiebreaker for the position of second, and anothoer close vote apeared! In the end, Speed of Sound took the position of second due to a lead of 7 to 6 versus Nothing Compares to You. However, this was such a close match, it's almost unfair to leave any out, so all five videos that made it to the final round will be getting award banners for their success in making it this far.

Ending Speech:

Everyone here in the Council is very proud of the results, and the conduct of voting here at LVI during this past tournament. Even with a harsh voting process, pitting some completely different videos against each other, in the end a solid winner was still decided. We'd like to thank all of you who voted or had a video in the contest for all your hard work, and for making such a tricky event as this possible. Once again, you have all proven how great a site can be when everyone puts their minds to it. We hope to continue with events such as this in the future, and wish you all good luck, and good vidding!
