THE BOYS AND GIRLS OF ROUND FIVE... SOME WILL LIVE AND SOME WILL DIE. Here we are again. Like any good franchise, the sequels just keep on going as the beast refuses to be beaten. So it's time to look back across the years, to the 2000s, find a little known tune that you think the rest of us will love, and send that sucka! Rules. Boooooo Spoiler General inclusion/exclusion criteria for entries: Spoiler must have been first released between 01.01.2000-12.31.2009 no UK top 20 hits no US top 20 hits no tracks from a US or UK top 10 album no covers or prominent samples of famous songs no songs (or covers of songs) that have competed in the Eurovision Song Contest (semi-finals or finals) relatively unknown/underrated on Popjustice - so as a general benchmark, nothing from an artist with more than 10 pages of discussion on PJ (across all their artist threads) no entry that has been previously entered in a previous round of PJ00s (list of past entries here), PJSC (see the wiki), or PJOPS (list of entries here; the '00s crossover round list can be found here) Songs that fail these criteria should be vetoed by the round host. Songs that pass these criteria should be PMed to the veto panel for their decisions, with at least a 2/3 majority vote required for a song to be be included in the contest. Repeat artists guideline: - the same act (in any form - solo, group, featured, etc.) cannot be entered in two consecutive rounds, or in more than 3 out of 10 total consecutive rounds - for the winner of each round, that artist cannot be entered again (in any form - solo, group, featured) for the subsequent TEN rounds - for songs that didn't win the previous round - no artists who were entered in that round can be entered again (in any form - solo, group, featured, etc.) in the next round - for the winner of each round, that artist cannot be entered again (in any form - solo, group, featured) for the subsequent five rounds - if the same artist wins two rounds of PJ00s in any form (solo artist, group, feature, etc.), that artist is no longer eligible for future PJ00s rounds For reference: PJ00s acts that have featured twice in the previous ten rounds (only one more entry is allowed up until the 10th consecutive round): - Briskeby (round 2, round 4) - Neko Case (round 1 as part of The New Pornographers, round 3 as a solo artist) PJ00s winning acts: - Ellie Campbell (round 1, eligible again in round 11) - Aurora (round 2, eligible again in round 12) - Rhona (round 3, eligible again in round 13) - Brandi Carlile (round 4, eligible again in round 14) Voting rules: You can award points to 10 entries per round. Award points ranging from 12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 (with 12 points going to your favorite entry). Only people who submitted a participating song can vote. Entrants cannot vote for their own submission. All entrants who fail to vote by the host's deadline will have their final scores be cut in half. Repeat non-voter policy: Non-voters negatively impact both themselves and everyone who voted for them. Therefore, participants who fail to cast their ballots by the voting deadline for two consecutive rounds, or for 3 non-consecutive rounds out of 5 sequential rounds, will be banned from entering the next 5 rounds. * Dates: Submission: February 20th to March 4th :: PM @Hudweiser - Artist > Title > Link Voting: March 5th to March 24th Veto Panel this round: @iheartpoptarts @londonrain @Mina Defending Champion (Scream Queen): @happiestgirl * "What is all this Choose Your Own Adventure shit, Hud?" Let's find out who you'd be in a horror movie... Are you the shy, demure final girl who'll rise from the ashes of dead friends to kick ass? Are you the hot jock everyone wants who is ultimately too concerned with sex to see the threat? Or are you the scheming bitchy girl on a path of social destruction to rival that of the killer? Or maybe you are the wackadoo - angry over some long-ago transgression that's turned you to slicing up nubile hotties on your weekends? How will this be determined? Stupidly. First point of call is to pick a number from 1 to 30 - relax, there are multiples of each. I'll let you know if all the 3's or 12's are snagged so you can re-pick. Then browse these lovely photographs and let me know - in order - which three most appeal to you. No explanation needed as to why, just go with your gut. Be warned though, not everyone can be Jamie Lee Curtis and your choices will set you on a path to glory or the grave... Example: #22 F, G, C This gets fed into the rollodex of fate and you'll all be informed of your character as the horror begins to unfold after submissions are closed. Choose wisely.
