Welcome to PJ00's 22: The One Hit Wonders Edition! After the fabulous round 21, hosted by @londonrain and won by @ComeOnGloria - here is round 22! I was the runner-up that round, and since @ComeOnGloria was not able to host, hosting duties now lie with me - but not alone! Precious @berserkboi offered to assist me, merci mon ami! Last round was won through a song by Meja - which inspired the theme of this round: one hit wonders. As Meja really has only one hit.... So, let's focus on one hit wonders from 2000-2009 this round! What determines a one hit wonder? Wikipedia quotes The Billboard Book of One-Hit Wonders: music journalist Wayne Jancik defines a one-hit wonder as "an act that has won a position on [the] national, pop, Top 40 record chart just once." So basically, a one hit wonder in one country, can be a major star in other markets!! For instance..... one hit wonders from different markets are: New Zealand: France: The Netherlands: Denmark: We want to challenge you this round to send us a one hit wonder from 2000-2009 through a PM to both hosts, which we will then reveal with your ballot at the reveals. If your selection has already been picked by someone else - we will let you know! The side-theme is of course not mandatory! But fun if many of you send us a one hit wonder! This will NOT be your entry for the regular round - for that entry, the usual rules apply: Spoiler: Eligibility criteria General inclusion/exclusion criteria for entries: 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) no entry that has been previously entered in a previous round of PJ00s (list of past entries here), PJSC (list of past entries here), or PJOPS (list of entries here; the '00s crossover round list can be found here). Additionally, no entry that has been previously vetoed in PJ00s (in general, these acts will most likely be vetoed again, unless the reason for the veto was that the song was previously entered in a different song contest). A list of previously vetoed entries is here. Repeat artists guideline: - the same act (in any form - solo, group, featured, etc.) cannot be entered for FOUR 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. Submit your contest song in a PM to both @berserkboi and myself by 23:59 CET on Monday January 13. Voting will close at 23:59 CET on Monday February 3. Reveals will be on Wednesday February 5. IMPORTANT: send us the Artist, Song title, year, and include a youtube link, plus a link to the correct version on Spotify. Side-theme songs can be sent with your contest entry, or later, but before voting closes! So, let's play!
