When things go wrong
When the scent of her lingers
And temptation’s strong

Madonna March Madness – Elite 8

Madonna-March-Madness-2 Time for the next round of the Madonna March Madness! The Sweet Sixteen was very interesting, and the Elite Eight is going to be very tough to predict. In the last round, there were only 5 votes in each battle. I thank you five very much for taking the time to come to this page and vote. I truly appreciate it.

Most of the voting took place on Twitter. There weren’t any battles with close enough results for the web page results to make a difference. That could change this round. The numbers on the Twitter voting ranged from 67 to 88 votes per battle.

You can vote on the Elite Eight matchups down below. You can click on the song title to see the YouTube video. Voting will be open until midnight on Monday March 23.
