TMP Songwriter Competition Recap: Final Round

We had our Top 13 contestants pour their hearts and souls out on The Tap’s stage on Saturday night….and wow….what a show!  There were so many artists with such strong performances, that when it came time to  take the Top 3 scorers for the second part of the final round, we realized that the top 8 performers, were all within 12 points of each other.  Yeah.  It was that close!

The second part of the final round once again was close, but ultimately there could only be one winner….Lucas Ebert!
