I knew that when I saw Filme Moi, I would lose to it. I actually planned to enter that next round and go on a little French rate run.
...Well, thank you @unnameable and @Sprockrooster ddd. Clara's based in Exeter so my entry was my first (and by the looks of it, last) attempt to boost local talent in PJSC. She definitely needs some better drum samples but I am really liking her stuff, and it's a shame she didn't seem to make a particularly big impression with any of you guys.
However I am very happy with the fact that I successfully predicted the winner, so congrats @Isobel on a very well-deserved win with a fantastic song! And of course thank you to @Derek for hosting!
As I said you missed my entry from The New Division in PJ00 last year 'Alive'.Congrats @Isobel - ngl I wasn't as big a fan of this song as I hoped (they've had better songs before, I am particularly partial to 'Overtime' and 'Woman's Work') but this was still a decent winner. Though I would have quite liked FLO to do it, glad they did better than the 11th place or whatever that 'Cardboard Box' got at least.
Also great to see Blondfire in the top 10 and Alice Et Moi was another good French entry (people keep trying to test my reputation of hating French music x). Shame The New Division just missed the top 10, up there with my best discoveries of the year so thanks for that @Untouchable Ace - actually that whole 11-16 section is better than most of the top 10!
Glad 'KI-KI' didn't do too horribly
ignoring the offensiveness of it finishing behind goddamn Leah Kate, thanks to those who threw it some points! It was the closest I could get to sending a ROSALÍA song. x
I'm guessing Spotify is now playing me more Blondfire thanks to your entry. I just heard Waves and obviously had to come and check if it's been entered before and it lost by one (1) point back in PJSC 18.Oh wow 6th place for Blondfire! Very happy with that result and was definitely not expecting that!
I've been super busy with work and life so I haven't been on here in a while. For the next
round which is already open, I'll just sit comfortably and go through the list to see if there are
any good artist discoveries! (Same for PJ00)
I did, but didn't say anything as Shy'm and Pauline were on there and deserved even more time in the sun ddd
