Out of curiosity, Step, how long will judging for each round take (usually)?
On the 19th you'll all get your results. In past years we've had LOADS of delays (which explains Kirbyfemur's video :P) because the judges used to have to score and write a review on each track in the judging periods and we'd post the reviews of each judge all at once in the round threads (example). The judging periods were usually around 2 - 5 days long, so that's up to 32 submissions to review in up to 5 days - you can imagine how hard that was, and some judges really had trouble making it.
This has since changed and now judges need to only score the submissions (since in the end it's the scores that determine who make it into the next round). Then, each judge will write a review reflecting on their score on the song page during the 2 weeks of the round that follows. It means you guys have to wait a little longer for reviews, but hey, it's a lot easier on the judges and it'll reduce chances of delays!
