Subject: Artistry Round 79 (Michael Jackson) RESULTS POSTED

Written By: Below Average Dave on 08/13/10 at 1:24 am

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 79 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 August 29th, 2010.  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) August 26th/27th at midnight
Central (St. Louis): August 26th at 11pm
Mountain (Denver): August 26th that 10pm
Pacific (Los Angeles): August 26th at 9pm

VOTING DEADLINE EXTENDED TIL MONDAY

I see no point in rushing the deadline when I extended the Tears for Fears entry period

That said here are my votes, which are before the original deadline

Before you read these, let me make it clear--this was a tough round to judge--great parodies, and one of the largest fields to choose from for a top 5 in Artistry this year--not the largest but good!

HM to Mark Scotti and Bilbopooh

1 Point to Agrimorfee (As I said on the parody, I'm not familiar with her, but the references still got me, so bravo)

2 Points to The Conqueror of Parodies (Epic parody about Jeans, deserving of points--PS your request via email--I will do my best;))

3 Points to Steve Bryant (How different would the world of our contests been if you had been here from the start--great way to kick off your contest entries at AmIRight, hope its not your last--great parody--even better recording)

4 Points to Matthias (I don't record a song if I don't see potential in it (unless of course I am nagged about it like a certain grammatically terrible song) but I digress--I love this one--you know that, and it was destined to be my 5 pointer but. . .and its a big but. . .)

5 Points to Rex Ungericht (I love the Matrix. . .and this parody was amazingly well crafted over TOS.  Billie Jean is one of those songs that inspire great parodies (3 of my top 5 were Billie Jean parodies)  It's amazing to me that a man like MJ who had a collection of hits that probably rank within the top ten of all time would have such a small sampling of his work hit in the round, unlike Britney who's comparatively small artistic history managed to pick off a different song for each person--you my friend, rocked Billie Jean, so I'm glad you didn't go with something else)

Very good job, tough round to rank

Awesome, can't wait to hear the results. Also, feel free to change the blanked swear words to something else if you feel uncomfortable swearing. I don't know your opinion/feelings on the matter, I just like to play it safe (hence my dilemma with my Tears for Fears entry).
