It's back after an absence in 2019! I can't promise how long it'll take until the results come with school being busy laugh.gif but 2019's were in August!

~ You have FIVE nominations, use them wisely~ all (eligible) nominated songs will advance to the main voting round

~ Your choices have to fit under the Indie/Rock/Alternative umbrella (mostly any artist whose music would be posted in *this* forum) I shall be the lenient judge! (it'll probably go on a song-by-song basis)

~ Your choices can be: any track released or promoted as a single in 2020 / any album track from a 2020 release / any track that reached its chart peak in 2020

I'm... not too sure laugh.gif

I suppose so, but I think I'll add in a limit where each person can't send more than 2 tracks from the same lead artist

The last time we did nominations for this she had when the party's over and you should see me in a crown, which is why I ask (surely bad guy would have been a strong contender to get her a second win in 2019 if we had done it then!)

Expect some fairly mainstream nominations from me then when I finally decide on five.

Hmm I see what you mean, I guess with someone like Billie it would have to be on a song-by-song basis - but I think NTTD would be fine.

For example with Rina, most of her music would be alright - but I'm not sure Lucid would really.

In regards to Taylor, I think we've decided against her inclusion here as she's too big of a 'pop' name for the spirit of this competition - and it opens the doors for Afterglow etc really. A tricky decision to make!

I agree they are ‘pop’ artists who make some indie pop songs...but that opens it up further lol.

So you can pick 5 ‘artists’ with loads of different song choices of an I reading it wrong?

I believe it is that you choose five different songs and you aren't allowed to name more than two by the same artist.

fair enough, Taylor is certainly a pop artist but Folklore is more indie than Ed Sheeran will ever be.

my 5 then:
Phoebe Bridgers - I Know the End
Phoebe Bridgers - Kyoto
Christine & The Queens - People I've been Sad
Soccer Mommy - Circle the Drain
Ex:Re - Romance
