As always, the unofficial counterpart to the Mercury Prize has been announced with the following 12 songs all in competition for £20:

‘BLACK MAGIC’ by Little Mix
‘BODY TALK’ by Foxes
‘DON’T BE SO HARD ON YOURSELF’ by Jess Glynne
‘I LOVED YOU’ by Blonde and Melissa Steel
‘I’M A RUIN’ by Marina & The Diamonds
‘KING’ by Years & Years
‘LOSING’ by Becky Hill
‘LOVE ME LIKE YOU DO’ by Ellie Goulding
‘SEASONS’ by Olly Murs
‘THE THRILL’ by Nero
‘TURN THE MUSIC LOUDER (RUMBLE)’ by KDA, Tinie Tempah and Katy B
‘UPTOWN FUNK’ by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars


EXCELLENT choices for the most part and possibly one of my favourite lists that I've seen them do. Not heard 'Seasons' and 'The Thrill' though but I LOVE the other 10 songs.

Great list, 100% has to be Black Magic for me but I'd love Losing as an underrated pick!

Uptown Funk can die though.

Black Magic to win? My money is on that or maybe King thinking.gif

Those two + LMLYD are the best so any of them would do me fine.

I like all 10 of the songs I've heard actually so a good list even if most of them feel rather predictable and are not very interesting choices.

Knowing Popjustice's taste, I'd probably say 'I'm a Ruin' will win. Peter loves the song a huge amount and the song won the Marina full discography rate on there earlier this year.

I just listened to 'Seasons' and it seems like an odd choice. I really hope 'Losing' can do well.

Nice to see 'Seasons' nominated. It won't win of course, but it's nice to see anyway. I should like Years & Years or Little Mix to win.
