In round eleven, we lose two songs:

Samantha Mumba - Gotta Tell You - Outside of her native Ireland and UK, Samantha Mumba is known as a one-hit wonder for this smash single from 2000, which reached the top five in the USA, UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. The song was written and produced by BAG & Arnthor, who were responsible for other tracks such as Jessica Simpson's 'Irresistible', Janet Jackson's 'All Nite (Don't Stop)' and Shontelle's 'Impossible'.

Stacie Orrico - (There's Gotta Be) More To Life - Much like Samantha Mumba, Stacie Orrico was another noughties popstar with fleeting success. Following the breakthrough hit 'Stuck', Stacie managed to pull out another hit with '(There's Gotta Be) More To Life', making the top twenty in the UK, Ireland, Australia and Germany.

As mentioned by Bryan. Stacie & Michelle Branch are the only ones with songs here that have never won a survivor before. Now that Stacie is out, Michelle Branch will proceed to Survivor of Survivors.

Unlike other things that wither, she preserves. She’s a constant in a world of relentless flux. She’s a beacon of immortality. Bitch, she’s Madonna.

In round twelve, we lose three songs:

Vanessa Carlton - A Thousand MIles - From a vote count perspective, there were a few rounds which suggested this might be the overall winner, but it's fallen short on voters this round. 'A Thousand Miles' was released in early 2002 as the debut single from Vanessa Carlton, whilst a smash hit, some would consider her a one-hit wonder (her closest other single was 'Ordinary Day' peaking at #30 in the US). The song is driven by an infectious piano hook and a memorable video which featured said piano front and center. The track was an international success, but only reached #1 in Australia, although it would go on to be the 6th highest selling song of 2002 in both the USA and Australia (...but only #73 in the UK end of year chart).

The Killers - Mr Brightside - It's not often that a song reaches heights of popularity unseen after the initial year of release, but 'Mr Brightside' has done just that. Arguably more popular now than it was in 2003-04, the track has been possibly the biggest sleeper hit of all-time, lingering on charts around the world for the best part of a decade. It's success was so sporadic for example, the original single release occurred in September 2003, it reached it's UK chart peak (#10) in June 2004, it's Australian chart peak (#29) in January 2005 and it's US chart peak (#10) in June 2005. What you may not know is that it had two music videos. Most people know the version featuring Eric Roberts, but perhaps you've never seen the much more demure original?

Macy Gray - I Try - Much like Vanessa Carlton, Macy Gray struggled to garner success beyond this turn-of-the-millennium hit. Released in late 1999, but primarily charting across 2000, this pop ballad nabbed Macy the Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 2001, but was also nominated for both Song of the Year and Record of the Year. It ultimately lost both of those categories to U2's 'Beautiful Day'. The track was written by Macy herself along with Jinsoo Lim, Jeremy Ruzumn & David Wilder. 'I Try' was a #1 hit in Ireland, New Zealand and Australia, with a peak of #5 in the US and #6 in the UK.
