You don't have to be "lucky" to go to the YFA. Anybody can, I usually do (8/10 over the past decade) and you don't even have to buy a ticket. Failing that, you can hear samples of the finalists on 'tInternet beforehand then broadcast on the MH show afterwards.
Only after you have done all these (and preferably more, like seeing the acts at a gig) are you qualified, and entitled, to make a personal judgment. Unless, of course, you are possessed of a big mouth, a headful of prejudice and fond of mindless scribbling on Mudcat.
