2018 Popjustice Readers' Poll

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by londonrain, Dec 14, 2018.

  1. Did I have a personal little Kim Petras love-in with my poll?


    (I'm disappointed Peter took the "which popstar would you most want to make passionate love with as part of loving relationship" question away because I'd be able to spam her name again.)

  4. One of the most surprising fails for me this year was CupcakKe. I love her so much, but even I was kind of bored by the time Eden came out, and it seemed like Ephorize didn't even make a splash at all aside from a couple of queers on here and Instagram talking about it. After Queen Elizabitch and working with Charli, I thought this would be her year, but I think she peaked last year sadly.
  5. I always have a hard time remembering all the things I hated.

  8. Me voting for Ally Maine as Pop Hero, Best Pop Star, Best Pop Moment and New Act Most Likely to Save Pop Music[​IMG]
  9. This years was hard. Like I’d like if they pushed this out at the start of the year so I knew what I was ranking people on come December because I gave some truly whacky answers. Also Jess Glynne was slated.
  10. What i'm putting as best cover:
  11. It’s been a grande year.
  12. Correct is better though...
  13. Literally the only cover version worth knowing this year...

  15. Can we vote for the concept of Vertical Video as the shoddiest video? I'm tempted

    So are we dragging Shania or have we run out of room with the likes of Xxxsomething, Kanye, Nicki, Justin?

    Drag Shania all you want, but Nicki Minaj is far more drag-worthy. At least Shania Twain didn't collaborate with any child molesters.

  20. It bridges late 2017/early 2018, but Charli XCX covering Wolf Alice's Don't Delete the Kisses and Wolf Alice reciprocating with a cover of Boys infused with Boys Don't Cry was my favourite Like A Version offering of the last 12 months.
