Popjustice Twenty Quid Music Prize 2022

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by Lost In Japan., Jul 22, 2021.

  1. Dua won with "Physical" last year and Future Nostalgia was Mercury-shortlisted. Also, Georgia won in 2019 for "About Work the Dancefloor" and Seeking Thrills was up for the Mercury the following year, though I guess that wouldn't technically have been a "double".

    Anyway, great to see the Laura Mvula hive rise up!

  2. This felt a bit of an okay but not great list this year. I like many of the artists nominated but don't think those are their best songs which were eligible. Church Girl is much better in my opinion.

  4. Reads like they pull two songs out of a hat, remove the loser and put the winner back into the draw.

  5. Hi girls, if you haven't seen I'm running a rate in Charts & Rates as a retrospective of the past twenty years of Twenty Quid Prizes! We'll get to last year's nominees in a future part but for now we are rating the nominees from 2003-2007, and I mean look at the material!
    Iconic winners, questionable nominees, some things never change... Voting is open until April 3rd and I would love to have you x

    Some decent songs there but I really feel the girlgroup shaped hole Little Mix left behind now.

  8. Flo picking up the mantle though!

    I’m also happy with the Rose Gray and HYYTS nods.

    However… Self Esteem making the Mercury List but You Forever somehow NOT making the Twenty Quid shortlist?? If I speak…

  16. The list is pretty bad, I think I only like about 5 of the tracks. In an elegibility period that had songs like these…
