    Hey achte minute!

    Figured I might be able to help regarding the novice final:
    Nanterre was OG, Sorbonne CO and OO was called DJ YOLO SWAG 2k16

    The other three panellists were:
    Susanna Ulinski
    Samuel Chan
    Ary Ferreira da Cunha

    My name is spelled with only one “L”.

    Cheers 🙂
