There is now a voting poll for this. Please vote.

 

PS, ALL 8 contestants are winners for having submitted an entry in this competition.  I'm proud of all of you. I didn't think this many would participate.

I think each version is well worth listening to. The fact that they all played it and submitted their rendition is worthy of praise. Thanks to all the musicians for the music and performances.

Bravo!!!  thumbs-up
