In step 2 of iTunes Match, all of my songs except one are matched (3937 of 3938) and it is stuck at step 2. Is there a way to force the final match? I'm missing artwork on my iPhone and iPad.

Just wait. Sometime it can take awhile, due to the hundreds of people doing the same thing right now. Or you can restart it, if nothing else works.

I didn't mention that I left it open for about 5 hours. – Richard Korn Jan 18 '12 at 17:06
