Bottom of the pack this year is Camila Cabello with one of the unluckiest top 20 misses of last year. 'Liar' performed somewhat disappointingly off the back of the mammoth summer smash 'Senorita'. Bastille briefly returned to the top 40 with an 80s cover used for last year's traditional John Lewis Xmas ad. Ex-1D solo hits have become very commonplace over the past few years & Niall Horan's comeback was a modest-sized hit. Just missing the top 20 are Coldplay who prove time and time again they still have hit capacity after so many years in the business.

CR: 42-55-47-{40}-47-47-50-61-65->9
Score: 36
Votes: 8
+10s: 1 [Jack]


Miley Cyrus is one of four acts to appear twice in this year's final. 'Slide Away' managed to scrape a solitary week in the top 40 and becomes the lowest placing track which received a 10. Also receiving a 10 and falling out are the ever-present Chainsmokers and their collaboration with boyband 5SOS. Rock group Catfish earned their first ever top 40 single back at the start of 2019 and remarkably received three 10s in this rate but that wasn't enough to prevent it from the bottom third of the results. Finishing just above is George Ezra with one of his less commercially successful singles in 'Pretty Shining People'.

Zara Larsson marginally finishes ahead of Ezra by virtue of one more 8, such was the tininess of that particular gap! 'Don't Worry Bout Me' was a minor hit following the top 10 'Ruin My Life'. Martin Garrix continued his run of chart success into 2019 by enlisting the help of Macklemore & the Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump. 'Summer Days' achieved a healthy chart run for its modest peak. Zedd's collaboration with Katy Perry '365' performed rather disappointingly, only scraping one week in the top 40 before tumbling heavily.

+10s: 1 [jimwatts]


Lizzo, another artist to have 2 appearances in this final, can be considered rather unlucky to have had such a long run for a song which peaked just inside the top 30. 'Truth Hurts' is one of the lowest peaking UK singles to have topped the Billboard 100 in the last 10 years. Above her is the second ex-Fifth Harmony member to achieve a solo UK 40 hit in Normani. 'Motivation' finishes surprisingly low in this contest. Just missing the top 10 this year is Lil Nas X, who could have reasonably been predicted to be one of the biggest one-hit wonders of all time but followed up with a moderately-sized hit, another one to achieve an impressive run but miss the UK top 20.


Which means the top 10 are:
Camelphat & Cristoph feat. Jem Cooke – Breathe
Dua Lipa - Swan Song
Kygo & Rita Ora - Carry On
Lizzo - Juice
Mark Ronson feat. Camila Cabello – Find U Again
Mark Ronson feat. Lykke Li – Late Night Feelings
Miley Cyrus - Mother's Daughter
Taylor Swift - Cruel Summer
Taylor Swift - The Man
Tiësto, Jonas Blue & Rita Ora – Ritual

I think I entirely missed the final voting thread for this oops! (and I forgot to vote in the earlier rounds anyway, sorry)

The songs that would have been my top 2 here are both already out oops ('Orphans' and 'Panini'). I'm not a super huge fan of any of the remaining songs, my fave of them is probably 'Late Night Feelings' I guess so that to win.

Kygo teamed up with Rita Ora to create 'Carry On', used in the Detective Pikachu movie. It was a modest hit with a reasonable run within the top 30. It is also the first group winner to fall, with it winning Group A, although didn't fall quite as harshly in the final as 'Orphans' which actually tied with it on points in its group. Both of Taylor Swift's eligible songs in this contest make the top 10 & the first of which lands in 9th place. 'Cruel Summer' is the only song in this list to manage a sole week in the UK Charts due to various rules in place at the time of its entry. In 8th is forum fave Dua Lipa who, despite releasing a song not so widely lauded on here, comfortably makes the top 10. 'Swan Song' was also used in a film, namely Alita: Battle Angel.

A section of artists with 2 songs in the running. Finishing much higher than her Miley's other entry is 'Mother's Daughter' which managed a respectable run midway through 2019. Taylor Swift bows out of the competition as her other offering 'The Man' comes home in 6th. It narrowly missed the top 20 in the week its album was released. Kicking off the top 5 is Lizzo with her first UK hit, 'Juice'. It snuck into the top 40 for a solitary week and set the platform for later successes.

A very impressive result for Mark Ronson with both of his eligible singles making the top 4. Both came from his fifth studio album 'Late Night Feelings' and both just cracked the UK top 30. The title track featured relatively unknown (to the UK) singer Lykke Li and became her first appearance on the UK Chart. Following that came 'Find U Again' which featured the rather more widely-known Camila Cabello and peaked several positions higher. There was a huge gap between the top 3 and the rest however 'Find U Again' was hot on the heels of the top 2. Speaking of which the top 2 were in fact only separated by a solitary point but who will come out on top?

Find U Again is terrible compared to Late Night Feelings. So bad that the latter finished lower. sleep.gif

Score: 95

+10s: 3 [dan.G, jszmiles & Rush]


CamelPhat just miss out on back-to-back wins here by the narrowest of margins. 'Breathe' had in fact been leading before the final 2 votes. Alas, it must settle for the runners-up spot. The track became Camelphat's 3rd top 40 single and was chart debuts for both Cristoph & Jem Cooke. It received the joint-most number of 10s here but ultimately fell short of the winning song by one point.

There we have it, Tiësto, Jonas Blue & Rita Ora are the winners for 2019! 'Ritual' graced the chart during Summer last year and although missed the top 20, it racked up a solid eventual run. Despite receive one less 10 than 'Breathe' it received the most votes, with only 6 participants not pointing it. The closest battle we've seen in 6 editions of this but another very worthy victor!

You're welcome. As you can probably tell my enthusiasm in running this each year is somewhat waning but it's kinda like my annual Buzzjack tradition now being the only thing I consistently personally host so I'll still plan to continue doing it.
