You just never know how things are going to play out. Except when Skub is in the round, then Skub wins.
Hmm are you just working the average here? I don't see how that shows anything particularly profound, unless you're implying there's some standard baseline, some grand 'objective' quantitative pattern that should develop naturally as the rounds continue that the judges should adhere to? Your reasoning does not take into account a hundred other equally ephemeral and important factors. The judges don't sit around in a smoking lounge, puffing on bubble pipes and discussing their reactions to the songs for hours on end
Since we don't do that, Skub winning is based purely on the judges individually coming to the conclusion that Skub's is the best. There's your 'objective' truth
