EW presents finalists for Shortlist Music Prize -- Wilco, The Streets, and Loretta Lynn are among the acts vying for the prestigious music award

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.
