Subject: Artistry Round 44 (Janet Jackson) RESULTS POSTED

Written By: Below Average Dave on 03/04/09 at 11:19 pm

As stated prior to this thread, VOTING is worth points.  If you vote and did not enter this contest, you will get 3 points towards the overall 5 year standings in the Artistry contest.  When you vote as an entrant in this round, you receive 5 points for voting. . .that means no one who votes ends with no points. . . .

Anyway, the rules are pretty similar to other contests.  This is round 44 so please know that ALL rounds will count EQUALLY toward the final standings, and NO rounds will be omitted from the final total.

1. All participants must comment on all entrants and vote by the deadline, which for this rounds is March 18th, 2009.  Failure to vote will forfeit all points from this round, and if that is less than 20 points, the difference will be forfeited in the following round (No Disqualifications)

2. Voting will take place by replying to this thread

3. If a person withdraws from an Artistry Round prior to the end of a round, all entrants who voted for that person's entry will be permitted to pick one new song to earn a bonus point, all other songs will be realigned accordingly.  There will be no penalty on those who don't change their vote.

4. Once a vote is posted, it cannot be changed UNLESS rule 3 applies OR there was a double-vote by accident.

5. Late entries will be accepted until the 1st vote has been posted.

6. The deadline is a strict deadline, the moment the date has reached the day after the deadline, no votes will count, this is to reduce last minute voting, or sympathy/favoritism towards different entrants.

7. We ask that any entrant who posts a link to his/her original song (source of parody) not be DKTOS for the contest.

8. All other basic competition rules as applied in other competitions are generally followed.  The rules may not be changed or altered unless two/thirds of those voting in a round where a rule change is requested agrees.  Rules may be added by host (Below Average Dave) if it was a rule in the ABC or SOTM contest that was thought to be common knowledge, but not known by a particular entrant.

Deadline:
EST (New York) March 11th/ 12th at midnight
Central (St. Louis): March 11th at 11pm
Mountain (Denver): March 11th at 10pm
Pacific (Los Angeles): March 11th 9pm
Sydney, AUS: March 11th at 4pm
The UK: March 11th at 5am

1. Pasty Boys by Agrimorfee
    Nasty Boys

2. Bad Barber Again by Below Average Dave
     Together Again

3. Rhythm Method by Rex Ungericht
     Rhythm Nation

4. Freaks by Matthias
    Scream

5. Socks - P-U by The Conqueror of Parodies
    Rock With U

Because there are only 5 entrants, entrants rank 1st through 4th, 5 points, 4 points, 3 points and 2 points, and voting is worth 6 Points, non entrants still get to vote for all 5

Thank you, and yes Bob Dylan is the next artist, his entry thread is on the main contest page, this contest is open to anyone--the only rule is for each round you have to do a parody of any song by the artist represented. . .welcome to Artistry, and you earn 3 points for voting when not required!

Don't forget to go back and leave a comment on each parody. . .it's a contest rule for all contests that helps us know that all parodies were read.

2 Points to TCOP (Great write job on this, tough topic choice, you deserve more than two, but everyone seemed to really shine on this round)

3 Points to Agrimorfee (Near perfect execution, a couple more killer lines could have really punched this one up, but great as is)

4 Points to Matthias (Awesome idea,  a few iffy references and a few iffy pacing spots, but enough great lines and overall great execution to overshadow it)

5 Points to Rex (I couldn't stop laughing, the whole idea, the execution, brilliant parody)

For such a small contestant field, you guys really blew this round out of the water.

Janet's over, and here are here Results. . .

******************************************************
1st Below Average Dave "Bad Barber Again" with 31 Points

2nd Rex Ungericht "Rhythm Method" with 30 Points

3rd Matthias "Freaks" with 28 Points
******************************************************


4th Agrimorfee with 25 Points

5th The Conqueror of Parodies with 16 Points

BONUS POINTS
**Please Note due to errors in my wording, this round was worth extra points for voting**
Jeff Reuben earns 6 points for voting when not required
Kevin Wrightly earns 6 points for voting when not required

Slip ups on my end, but I will stick to my word, a couple things brought to my attention during conversation pointed them out to me--oops--BTW it was not brought up by any voting participant in this round, which makes me feel even stronger about my decision to award 6 points instead of the usual three, and besides this was a great round for everyone in no small thanks to extra voters, Congrats Rex and Matty, and thank you guys a lot for putting my horrendous barber on top out of a great pack of parodies. . .on to Bob Dylan
