The losing entries:




In this round we see the departure of BJ AF fave, Kylie Minogue in a nail-bitingly close play off (just ONE VOTE seperated her from Little Mix!). And we have under dogs Dua Lipa & Rita Ora managing to out do forums such as Spice Girls, Ariana, Rihanna, Beyoncé... a massive success for both of those forums.

Round 10 will be starting on Monday, 17th June morning and will last for roughly 24 hours. There are NO PLAY-OFFS from now and the top 5 will all be single eliminations. Mods of the remaining 5 forums, please PM your next entry to UltraME! by Sunday evening at 23:59 (tonight).


Thanks so much for your participation in Round 9 heart.gif

Didn’t manage to vote in the play-off before the deadline but very pleased with the outcome as “Move” is one of my Little Mix faves!

That was so fricking close.

Would've loved to have seen how All the Lovers fared for Kylie!

The remaining choices I had in mind were All the Lovers, Better the Devil You Know, Love at First Sight and The One. I feel like The One might not be as recognisable with general fans and I don't think Kylie would have won anyway, so I'd probably have saved that till last. All the Lovers would probably have been my choice in the next round.

What a tense play off though! I didn't think Kylie would put up that much of a fight against Little Mix, even leading until the last hour or so. Pleased with finishing 6th.

I figured Dancing was coming considering how well loved it seemed on this forum

I don't think it would have held up at this stage, maybe in the earlier stages.

In hindsight I may have saved my earlier choices of Slow, Confide in Me and Can't Get You Out of My Head until later, but my logic was that they have a fair share of haters, each receiving -1s in the recent Kylie rate, so I thought I'd use them first. Turns out the fans outweighed the haters a fair bit.

That’s quite an atrocious top 5 but I guess it could have been worse.

Gaga needs to win the whole thing tho.

Kylie's best song // Little Mix's most overrated.

Little Mix and Girls Aloud in the top 5 ahead of people like Madonna or Pink is a blasphemy biggrin.gif

Aww these were my #2 and #3 in the singles poll, I hate having to pick one of them. Narrowly 'Move', though artist-wise I'd pick Kylie.
^ Given it ended up one vote apart, I essentially ruined my own self-interest :')

Really didn't expect the playoff to be so close, well done to Kylie for putting up a fight. 'All The Lovers' would've been great! Earlier on I was thinking 'Better The Devil You Know' would be the most likely possibility for a pre-1994 Kylie song, but I figured it was definitely too late as of a few rounds ago, particularly after Madonna went out with one of her biggest '80s hits.

I think Devil would have held up better than Like a Virgin. The latter is a pretty recognised song but not half as popular as Devil, which is largely considered Kylie's best.

Joe and I were discussing about the possibility to submit "Scared To Be Lonely" and it was one of our options in round 4, but we decided to go with "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)" instead because it was a single elimination. We didn't expect it to do well, so if we should have known that, I guess we could have probably submitted "Scared To Be Lonely" first and then, the rest of the songs in the same order.

Also, we had "Scared To Be Lonely" as an option in this round, but we chose "Last Dance" instead because we were aware that we could be eliminated though.
