Welcome to the 57th edition of the song contest PJRetro (né PJOPS). I am your host for this era because as always, thank you for the unexpected win. For this win I must formally thank the members of Dazzle / Delage / Eden that helped me achieve my 3rd win across 3 competitions. So thank you Rhonda, Karena, Frances & Emma. (Even though they weren't involved with 'Running Back For More' also to Charlotte and Judy.) Round 56 of the contest was a special one that celebrated all that is underrated in the world. This round will celebrate some that are really only underrated on this forum. Men. This round's is a male vocals. However, you can submit an entry in to the contest that does have female vocals, but it must include some lines within it sung by a male. An example of an acceptable female and male vocal song, that is also really good. Between the opening of this contest and the conclusion of voting I would also like you to send in a male vocal song or album that is special to you so much so that you want the forum to hear it. This side theme music must also have been released before December 31st 1999. So please start a PM with me and send me your music. You submit a song, the veto panel reviews your submission, and you’ll hear back if you’ve successfully passed. Once the song list is revealed, you listen to all of the other entries and put together a Eurovision-style ballot ranking the 10 songs you think most deserve recognition with point values as follows: 12 points (your favourite song other than your own goes here.) 10 points 8 points 7 points 6 points 5 points 4 points 3 points 2 points 1 point (your 10th favourite song goes here.) You cannot vote for your own entry, you don’t know who submitted the other songs, and only those who have entered a song may submit a ballot. Contestants who enter a song but don’t vote have their points total halved as a consequence. Criteria that will fabsolutely result in a veto: Song was originally released after December 31, 1999.
