So the third time's a charm, right? In case you haven't been on the forum for very long, this has been attempted twice and the results fizzled out before they got too far along. The original host should be commended for the compilation videos they made and uploaded, but this day and age copyright laws are very stringent and any videos with copyrighted music in them will usually get blocked. That and the fact that real life things pulling them away of from this, it just was never going to happen. Now it's 2019, and those old results wouldn't be realistic...besides, this decade is coming to an end...so what better way to celebrate than to bookend it with a countdown of Popjustice's favorite artists? In 2011, several of the original forum members threw their hat in the ring and came up with this list of 586 artists. How many artists will move up or move down? Surely some artists are set to drop out of the rankings as times/tastes have changed. Of course it will be exciting to see what new artists have come to the forefront over this decade. What do you have to do? Well, it's easy. Just send in a list of at least 20 and up to 40 of your favorite artists (via PM to me). This should be subjective and not objective, but I can't stop anyone from forming their list however they'd like. There is absolutely no limit to the genre of said artist, how old the music is, or how many songs they released...anything goes. Obviously, the artists can be solo or a band/group. Your top artist gets the most points and your last one gets the least points. So for example, if you send in 28 artists, #1 gets 40 points, and #28 gets 13 points, etc. Along with each artist simply put down your favorite song by that artist. That's it. No commentary is needed for this one, as I'd rather save any comments for when artists are revealed and they can be made in the thread. (Plus, I definitely don't want to sort through all of that commentary) I will provide a full artist capsule with most information coming from Wikipedia, but it will give everything a nice formal aesthetic. I will also provide a Spotify play link (or youtube if need be) of your favorite song and their signature song based on charts/sales (if they differ). Please provide a youtube video of any special versions of your favorite song as I really would rather not have to hunt for it and if you don't specify, I can't read minds ddd. One other thing, solo careers are separated from any band they were in. So you could obviously enter Beyoncé and Destiny's Child for example, if you should choose to. Or a singer that was the lead man for multiple bands, all of those bands are available as they're own entry. I will try to post artists on daily basis. I'm not sure how many per day, but a group of them at least...unless I can't get to a computer on a given day. Just know that results will be consistent. Once we get down to the big names, I will definitely slow down a bitsy. I was the host of the album version of this kind of countdown so rest assured, this will be completed. Please format your ballots like this: 1. Artist - Favorite Song 2. Artist - Favorite Song Not sure how long people need to get their lists in, so I'll just go ahead and give a month unless people need less/more time. So let's say June 1st.
