    It's that time again! Ready to pit all your obscure noughties faves against each other?

    • must have been first released between January 1, 2000 and December 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 (see the wiki), 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.

    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 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 NINE 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

    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.​

    But what's the twist?

    Well, since the winner of round 44 was called Antilles, it's time for a round pitting the countries of the world against each other... and with Eurovision around the corner, what better time for it? For our side theme, I will be asking you all to pick a country or territory (real or fictional) to represent you in the competition. Your song will be competing on behalf of that country or territory, so choose wisely!

    [​IMG]

    Submissions are now open, and will close at 23:59 Pacific Daylight Time on Monday, April 25. Remember to send your entry to me via a message. Unlike PJSC, there's no voting form!

    Once the list of songs is up, voting will run until 23:59 Pacific Daylight Time on Monday, May 16.

    Okay, you can post now.
     
  7. Love that the country/territory can be fictional!

    I remembered a potential submission, but it's not on spotify, unfortunately.

    I have no idea what to submit yet, so please no one steal any of the entries I may or may not enter into this round or indeed future rounds, possibly.

    Channelling Buzzjack dddd.

    My biggest successes lately have been songs that weren't on Spotify (in most territories), so I wouldn't consider that a reason not to submit it!

    NOT me receiving two automatic vetoes in the first hour dddd.
     
  11. Well maybe just one more round since @londonrain is hosting...

  12. Another Kylie clone?
     
  13. londonrain

    Dddd no. Just a previous PJSC entry and a song from a UK top ten album.


     
  14. [​IMG]

    Yes, I sent Jem thinking the song was obscure enough just because it's an album track and didn't bother with checking the charts.
     
  15. I actually briefly considered submitting something from that same Jem album this round myself, but then I remembered it wouldn't work because it charted too high.

    That whole Jem album was great!

    And of course They remains amazing.

  17. Opening a thread at 4.43AM for Australians! Really, @londonrain??

    [​IMG]

    Let’s hope my entry isn’t already taken dd
     
  18. I mean it's not like the song was released this month and everyone is in a race to submit it nn.
     
  19. I see someone missed the submission wars of Australia where I won with what Ace was planning to send, and Melbs won with what I was planning to send etc... Can’t wait for that winner to be taken from Melbs any day now ddd
