    that $1,000 beat winning song is the weakest thing I've heard. Um hello those sounds in that track were used in the 90s. Old instruments/drums who judges this contest??

    lol I agree. The dude singing sounds wack as hell. I'm not surprised the cheaper a song sounds these days the better chance it has for some odd reason.
