    KidVid Tournament 2009 Final: The Jimmies vs. Secret Agent 23 Skidoo

    It's time for the championship matchup in KidVid Tournament 2009. From the first round on, I had a pretty good feeling that this is where we'd be. The matchup features the The Jimmies' "Cool To Be Uncool," from their Make Your Own Someday CD and upcoming Trying Funny Stuff DVD, going up against Secret Agent 23 Skidoo's video for "Gotta Be Me" off his debut Easy.

    Two thoughts:
    1) Even if you know who you're going to vote for (and especially if you don't, natch), please watch both videos -- they're each excellent in their own ways. One of the whole purposes of this competition is to encourage folks to listen to and watch kids music they might not have seen before.
    2) Every time you vote twice, a little puppy gets dropped on the sidewalk and whimpers. Seriously, y'all, I've put some safeguards to prevent/reduce double-voting, but it's not perfect. All I'm asking is that you remember that this is just a poll for fun on the internet. There are no cash prizes involved.

    Anyway, feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below, but the official results are based on the poll at the bottom of the page. One vote per household, please. Votes due by midnight tonight (Monday) East Coast time. And play nice!

    I gotta say...its the heat of the battle and both of these videos are awesome. Gotta Be Me, with 58 kids from Asheville (our friends) and my man and daughter have made such a strong impression that 3 year old's stand strong against the 'mean kids', children that are normally the 'outcasts' become brave enough to rap in talent shows and the stories keep coming back to us. Good stuff. Strong messages. But hey, I like the other video too..(just this one better!)
    Gotta be that Gotta Be Me!

    Lovin' that song!

    I will admit, 23 Skidoo's song is awesome, and very catchy with a great message. However, its a music VIDEO tournament. There is not even the slightest comparison to The Jimmies video. Jimmies, you rock. We have made it to the final 2 for the second year. We gave it our best shot. We will prevail!!!

    Whew. It's been a long night (and I'm a little bit late with this), but Secret Agent 23 Skidoo is the champion. But big congratulations to both SA23Skidoo and the Jimmies for their videos!

    I thought of that, Stefan. And I sure don't wish a tie on YOU, but just sorta wanted both to win. I'm glad that the votes were so close. They are both so great! Congrats SA 23Skidoo

    Yea this is music video contest, but if the music from one group isn't as good as the other, it doesn't matter how many video effects there are...Thats like sayin someone is a better singer cuz they crazy effects on their vocals..Anyway, both groups did excellent! I would buy a cd of each of the groups for my little ones!
