Explanation:
I was reading exactly the same article earlier today and had to look up exactly the same word! Literally it means "swing", but in this context I read it as "falter".

I hope this is of some help. What did you make of the result, by the way? Pleased?

I was very pleased with the outcome. I would have been disappointed if YOHIO had won. Fingers' crossed for May!

Notes to answerer
Asker: thanks Richard, that's great! Very pleased, thank you for asking - he deserved it!

Asker: oh, and you?

Asker: yes, agreed! I think YOHIO thrives in the genre he knows well, but he looked very inexperienced on stage during MF, and sang off key.

  -> :-) Thanks Charles! But don't rely on my judgement too much ... it's just that I'm an avid follower of MF so I knew what had happened in the rehearsals the day before!
