All bets are off for this one - who will be victorious in the eyeliner battle of the century?

The rules have changed. Instead of rating each band out of 10 over each category, you must pick which band you would rate highest in that category. If you can't decide which band is best at that particular area of pop, tick the BOTHERD box!

Exactly how the results of this poll and the previous pop trumps will be converted into a card game are being kept under wraps for now - come along to Poptimism on June 7th if you want to find out!

The rules are here but it couldn't be simpler. 10 is the highest, 0 is the lowest, if you really don't know then go for 5. Giving reasons for your scores in the comments is encouraged!

This week our contestant is an umbrella-wielding 20-year-old from Barbados! But does she have what it takes to be top of the trumps?

This week our pop trump contestant is also at the top of the charts with a certain lady friend of his. He's got an ego the size of a planet and a colourful array of knitted jumpers - but how good is he at being a pop star?


I ain't saying she's a poll-ticker )

These girls were the very first [livejournal.com profile] poptimists canon victims just over two years ago. Since then they've acquired a new member, scored another number one, and secured themselves a firm place in the poptimst bosom. Hurhurhur I said bosom. But how good are they at being popstars? Only you can decide!

Today's contestants were doing a Top 50 Brilliant Boybands thing on Hits!TV the other night, and modestly only included 5 of their own songs! They also like pointing at things.
