Girls Aloud Land Fifth Popjustice Twenty Quid Prize

British pop blog Popjustice awarded its Twenty Quid Prize this evening. The honor, which started as more of a tongue in cheek thing than anything, is given to the best British single of the past twelve months. The winner is awarded twenty pounds and gets their song debated to death on the Popjustice forums. Girls Aloud have been nominated every year since the contest began and have won five times. Their winning single this year, "The Promise", bested Frankmusik, La Roux, and Lily Allen for the title.

The Aloud's other winning songs have been "No Good Advice" (2003), "Wake Me Up" (2005), "Biology" (2006), and "Call The Shots" (2008). Rachel Steven's "Some Girls" won in 2004 and Amy Winehouse's "Rehab" took home the honors in 2007.
