    And then there were 4 left, scrambling for 2 spots of safety.

    But who of Anathema, Florence + the Machine, Within Temptation and The XX will be safe and who will be the next eliminated?

    The next one safely through is...

    Four are already through - Madonna, Fleetwood Mac, Chvrches & Pvris.

    Which leaves just 2 places left. Only one actually, as the 5th spot has been claimed by...

    Three Artists. One Spot of Safety.

    The last Artist through to the 4th Round draw is...

    The XX are the last artist to qualify from Group A.

    Which unfortunately means that Within Temptation (@Drakhan) and Anathema (@Tulf) are the next to join the Jury. Having had a taste of both of these now in this comp, will definitely be giving them a bit more of a listen in the days to come. Thanks again to Drak and Tulf, and better luck next time.

    One place left.

    Who is it going to be?

    With a score of 62 the final artist to make it through to the Round 4 draw is...

    62 points

    Which means it is the end of the line for Courtney Barnett (@Minty ) and Katy Perry (@Keano88 ). Courtney Barnett really split opinions in this round, scoring 3 '1' votes, but also courted double that number in '8's. Which means that there will be a new BotB Champion as Minty will be relinquishing the title. As for Katy Perry, there is no shortage of her fans in the world for various reasons, but in this Round, not enough among the TC voters. Sorry.

    Within Temptation have some crackers, imo. Albeit the songs from them in this competition aren't ones that stand out to me.

    I'm glad Anathema don't sound like that any more. That's * atrocious.:56:

    This is the most perfect 12 minutes of music you'll ever hear.

    Round 4

    And then there were 12! Congratulations to those that are still in the running.

    This will be the LAST round where there is a theme in play.

    Back Where It All Began


    For this Round, you will need to select a song that was released either prior to, or was featured on, your chosen artists debut album. It can be a single released after the album itself was released, so long as the song was featured on the debut album, if not before.
    Addendum: Some bands may have debuted prior to a female vocalist being part of the band etc. In which case, the album in which the female vocalist first featured as a full time member will be counted as that artist's debut for the purposes of this Round.

    This Round will be 2 Groups of 6, with 1 eliminated from each Group.

    So 2 will be cut this Round.

    Groups as determined by Random.org will be posted shortly.

    Good Luck All!
