As celebrated for its hipster judges as for its winners, the Shortlist Music Prize has furnished EW exclusively with this year’s 10 finalists, nominated by such walking cred-o-meters as John Mayer, the Roots’ Ahmir ”?uestlove” Thompson, and filmmaker Jim Jarmusch. The winner of the fourth annual award (Damien Rice won in ’03), announced Nov. 10, will get $10,000 and a collective sigh of validation from Usher-weary critics worldwide.
