    I'm out of character.
    I'm in rare form.
    If you really knew me
    You'd know it's not the norm.

    Cause I'm doing things that I normally won't do.
    The old me's gone I feel brand new
    And if you don't like it, fuck you.
    Hello everyone and welcome to our 19th contest about music from the first decade of our century.

    Here I am @Untouchable Ace fresh from my first win thanks to the talented musical ensemble Chromeo, to also host for the first time other than a lone guest elimination.

    Our esteemed co-host is your friendly sometime model @berserkboi. Also co-hosting is my other self @babes aloud (my other account purely for superintending purposes)

    In light of my public forum persona @Untouchable Ace, and private persona @babes aloud, this round let's explore the different versions of ourselves and your favourite Alter Egos from history.

    [​IMG]

    General rules of the contest to take into consideration when picking your entry:
      • 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 relatively famous/chart-successful cover versions of your desired entry (if it's the original version) recorded by a different act
      • 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)
      • Songs that fail these objective criteria will vetoed by the round hosts. Songs that pass these criteria should be PMed to our esteemed veto panel for their decisions, with at least a 2/3 majority vote required for a song to be be included in the contest. The hosts will PM you to let you know if your song has passed or failed veto once the panel renders a verdict.

    Repeat artists guideline:
      • the same act (in any form - solo, group, featured, etc.) cannot be entered for FIVE rounds since their last appearance (i.e., a non-winning round 8 act can be reentered no sooner than round 13, and in round 9, non-winning acts from rounds 1-4 are generally eligible again)
      • for the winner of each round, that artist cannot be entered again (in any form - solo, group, featured) for the subsequent TEN 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

    Let's get to the side-theme.

    What does PJ00s 19 have in store for you?
    Well, just fun, twists and surprises along the way!

    In the spirit of the great Bruce Wayne / Batman, Madonna / Madame X, Lizzie McGuire / Hilary Duff and many other legends - we are celebrating Alter Egos this time!

    PM us with one of your favourites throughout history along with your entry, and a short description of why they are your favourite.

    Another challenge we'd like you to consider is sending an entry from your long list that would not necessarily be associated with you! Think @berserkboi sends Skye Sweetnam, @londonrain sends Susumu, @iheartpoptarts sends Rod Stewart or @Ironheade sends a Britney clone and such!
    What would your alter ego send through that your regular self wouldn't?
    What style of song or singer has yet to make it through as one of your submissions but is perfect to appear here?
    Is your alter ego a Superhero or a Superstar?
    We cannot wait to see what you have in mind!

    Please send your entry & favourite alter ego in a PM to
    @Untouchable Ace @babes aloud & @berserkboi
    Submission period 17th September 25th September.
    Vote by October 16th 12.59 GMT.



    Let me lay it on the line
    I got a little freakiness inside
    And you know that a man has gotta deal with it.

    I don't care what they say
    I'm not about to pay nobody's way
    'Cause it's all about the dark in me.

  4. Guys, this theme is INCREDIBLE. So good!

    I'm looking through my longlist now to send something different to what I've sent before.
     
  5. The side theme is really interesting, I love it!


    As for the submission, I've already chosen the song in advance.
    But, in reality, almost all of my potential submissions can somehow be tied with me, so I guess that it isn't really important what I submit this time. Actually, there is one song that is different to my other PJ00s entries, but I wanted to save it for later (as it's likely to not do well here, based on the previous rounds).

    I have an iconic entry for this round (that actually fits the theme too!) but it's a bit of an odd one and I have no idea if it'll pass veto.
     
  8. Love the theme!

    Though can I really send something out of character when every one of my entries has been different from the last? I mean, I could go for m*** v*****, but that would be taking it too far.

  9. Wait, how can you say "n n n n n" without it getting turned into I_CANNOT_USE_REAL_WORDS_PROPERLY_?
     
  10. Side theme? I'm still owed my side theme spotlight from the last round.

  11. This side theme is brilliant and probably means my britney clone is off the table.

    Btw, @babes aloud allowed me to promote my rate in this thread, so here it goes:

    Please come vote in the Marina rate, guys!
    There's exactly five days left to do that*
    Plenty of mess, light-hearted draggings, and questionable opinions guaranteed.
    See y'all there!

    *(or however long it takes for @londonrain to get his scores in, cause I'm not starting without him.)​
