#14: Michael Kiwanuka

AVERAGE SCORE: 2.07

HIGH SCORES: Explozian (9), #psychic7 (7), Pavel (7)
LOW SCORES: Far too many to copy and paste



What an epic fail on BBC's part. There are varying levels of success in the BBC Sound of Winners poll, but Kiwanuka's name sticks out the most. Kiwanuka is a soul singer from North London (according to Wiki) and I remember at the time of the announcement, thinking it was a surprising but withholding judgment until his career starts to get going. We can now judge away. He may have a gold selling album (from 2012, when album sales were higher, no less), but Kiwanuka is the only Sound Of Winner never had more than one single chart top 100. Not that low sales equate to being a bad artist, most of Buzzjack would be without anyone to stan for if that were true, but BBC really pride their winners in doing "BIG THINGS" in the following year...

2012 was a bit of a no go for all, looking at the top 5, hardly any of them are British so there wasn't much to go from. But, yeah, boring.

#13: The Bravery

AVERAGE SCORE: 3.18

HIGH SCORES: Iz (8), dandy* (8), Chez Wombat (7), Riser (7), Jade (7), HarryEzra
LOW SCORES: A lot of 0s



The Bravery were a rock band from New York and they did OKAY in terms of commercial success, (Better than Michael, anyway). They had a top 10 single, and a few other charting songs. And actually released two further albums, which didn't seem to have charted in the UK, so it seems they were quickly forgotten about. The amazing Bloc Party came second to them and clearly should have won, as they ended up being a lot more successful.

Apologies if I've got the facts wrong regarding this band, I'm not even entirely sure if that's them in the picture, but hey, the guy on the far right looks vocally talented.

#12: Jessie J

AVERAGE SCORE: 3.86

HIGH SCORES: Jonjo (11), Josh Josh Binks (11), UltraChristmas (10),

LOW SCORES:Umi (-1), 152chris (-1), Cassidy (-1), Qween (-1), Chez Wombat (-1), Bré (-1), Iz (-1), #psychic7 (-1), Joe (-1), LeeWallace (0), Pav (0), dandy* (0), ░░░░ (0), Qassändra (0), Explozian (0),



Where to start with Jessie J? I did like 'Do it like a Dude', but then she ruined it all with 'Price Tag' and several other annoying songs. Regardless of my personal musical taste, Jessie J's jarring personality is where she gets that -1 from myself and probably others as well.

A few of the annoying things Jessie J has done:
- Stated that her bisexual ways were just a 'phase', one word LGBT do NOT like to have associated with their sexuality.
- Attention seekingly unfollowed everyone on Twitter. Her comments on the matter 'I find it insane that some people take being unfollowed like a personal attack, if I punched you in the face fair enough. But I didn’t... Meh.'
- Criticises Voice contestants of doing too many "runs and licks" a year after leaving the show, when she is Jessie J.
- Released 'It's My Party'.
- Appeared on the voice
- Made Music

It's My Party is an absolute JAM. My favourite from her is 'Thunder' though.

I totally get why she is disliked as a person don't get me wrong but she has a few good tunes~

'It's My Party' is one of the worst songs of the decade, absolutely unlistenable. sad.gif

('Do It Like A Dude', 'Price Tag', 'Domino', 'Wild' and 'Sweet Talker' are okay-good x)

Lmao at the onslaught of low scores *_*
