Desks Of The Tiny Desk Contest: The results are in, and the fan favorite in our third and final weekly vote was Utah singer Kelli Moyle, who took a lonesome train ride to create this beautiful video. As she sings “happy birthday part 2″ to the nearly empty train car, she’s accompanied by a tiny school desk in the train’s aisle. “The end of the line / As far as we go,” the announcer says at the end. It’s a perfect atmosphere and desk — both are well-suited to this small, lovely song.

Next week, we’ll announce the overall winner for the Tiny Desk Contest, as selected by our judges. We are so thrilled with all the talent we’ve seen this year. Stay tuned.

Desks Of The Tiny Desk Contest: Austin-based F.D.Robot and the World War Two have concocted a surreal setting for this video. A miniature Tiny Desk (recreated with painstaking detail) is set in the chest cavity of the titular F.D.Robot, so named for the 32nd President of the United States. There, tiny finger puppets play along to the noisy, twisted song “The Golden Ladder.” The band has set the president’s 1935 “Radio Address to the Young Democratic Clubs of America,” in which he speaks of a Golden Ladder, to music. It bears noting that, while James Brown appears in this video, he did not play on the original recording of the speech.

If this truly crazy Tiny Desk — which collapses time and space —is your favorite of the Contest, then by all means do what F.D.R. would ask of every citizen: vote (by tomorrow at 10 a.m. ET). In the meantime, we’re reviewing all the submissions to the Contest to choose our overall winner, whom we’ll announce next week!

Desks Of The Tiny Desk Contest: Utah singer Kelli Moyle sits alone on a train car, singing the longing “happy birthday part 2.” She places a tiny school desk in the train’s aisle, where it sits like a dedicated listener. It’s a tender, beautifully shot performance.

Desks Of The Tiny Desk Contest: California’s Vikki Lee & Bob Woods have chosen an incongruous location for this traveling song: the Oval Office. They appear as ghostly figures who, superimposed atop the desk, sing about a hard-traveling life over a driving Nashville country sound.

If this presidential desk is your favorite of the Tiny Desk Contest, then head over to our weekly just-for-fun vote page by this Friday at 10 a.m. ET to cast your vote. In the meantime, we’re reviewing all the submissions to the Contest to choose our overall winner, whom we’ll announce next week!
