Popjustice Song Contest 56 [Results NOW!]

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by eyeline, Jul 2, 2017.

  1. Hello and welcome to the Popjustice Song Contest #56!


    Before starting let us remind ourselves of the rules:

    Popjustice Song contest is a music contest focused on discovering new music, each participant picks a song by a lesser known artist or new discovery and pits this song against other unknown or new songs.

    The song you have chosen should be submitted to the host of the contest during the submission period, during this time the veto panel will score your song out of 100 (0 being instant veto, 100 being no issues) if it averages 50+ then it will be accepted into the contest.

    Things that will effect your veto score, but not necessary veto

    - Previously submitted artist (3 being generally the upper limit unless significant time has passed)
    - Doing well in a previous round
    - Forum threads or discussions
    - Double submission of song
    - Multiple submission of artist
    - Reality TV contestant
    - Notable personalities (who aren't necessary singers)
    - Mentions by PJ on social media (but not on the website)
    - Features in PJSC song of the week or featured in spotify playlist
    - Blog presence (non PJ)
    - Large view counts on youtube (no exact science here, but upload time and international audience are taken into account)
    - Big artist in another country
    - Lesser hits / album tracks from well known K-Pop acts
    - People with features on hits
    - Covers of lesser known songs
    - Samples of lesser known songs

    Things that will be vetoed for

    - Winners of the PJSC
    - Songs that have already been entered
    - 3 or more submissions of that song
    - A song that is featured on the front page (in a solo article) in the last 3 months (another song by the artist or remix of the same song can be chosen and may clear veto)
    - Songs involved in the current eurovision cycle up to and including the month of the contest
    - Songs that have significant radio play (check this via http://comparemyradio.com/)
    - Covers of well known songs
    - Samples of well known songs
    - Big hits / big singles from well known K-Pop acts
    - Major K-Pop acts (2NE1, f(x), SHINee, Girl's Generation)

    After the song list is revealed you have period of time where you are able to submit your votes, you should vote using the traditional Eurovision style points system (12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1) with the top marks going to your favorite, and 1 going to your 10th favorite, and remember you cannot vote for your own entry.

    In lieu of a theme I'm just going to ask you to select your favorite non-winning entry YOU have entered to PJSC as well as your favorite discovery (artist or song) from the contest's many iterations! If you wish to, of course. If you do please just include both of these (and a brief commentary) along with your votes!

    Important dates:
    Sunday July 9 23:59 - Submissions Due
    Monday July 10 - Voting Begins
    Sunday July 23 23:59 - Votes due
    Monday July 24 time tbd- Results!

    You may now submit entries here.

    Now let us pray my hosting and this round does not end up a hot mess!

    Hopefully the Hipster justice crew turn up this round because my song is far from mainstream but it's gorgeous!

  4. Oh my god, I've got so many flop entries to choose from. Amazing.

  5. Well two of my entries sit in my top 5 alltime plays on LAST FM. So for me it is hard already.

  6. Footage of me submitting.

  7. I initially read this as meaning this was going to be a round of previously-submitted entries and it nearly gave me a heart attack as I only have two previous entries and both flopped hard. I've submitted a new song which I'm hoping will do better.

    ...it isn't a round of previously-submitted entries, is it?
  8. It's not! New entries all around--well, the songs themselves don't have to be new, just new to this contest!

    The previously submitted entries will be part of the festivities on the night of the voting reveal.
  9. I'd be low key down for a round like this though, So I can enter 5Angels again.

  10. Entered a song I have been keeping close to my chest a couple of months now, so may as well send it in all its glory.
  11. When you go to the song list this month there should be a sign that reads "Leave your wigs here before beginning" because my song will be taking it permanently otherwise.

  12. After several months of flopping, I think I might actually have something that'll land in the top 10. Fingers crossed!

  18. My entry is brilliant but subtle so I'm worried...
  19. I'm sensing potential veto.
