Top Artists Of All Time (GROUP O)

The 16 Artists From Group O

15 weeks down in the semifinals and one week to go until we  reach our final 64 (68). This week we advance four more artist to the finals of The Top Artists Of All Time.

Ballots were sent to 34 voters who were asked to chose their six favorite artists out of a possible 16. They order their six, send them back and the results are tabulated to see who the Top 4 Artists each week are. Out of 34 ballots, 30 (88%) were sent back. Each ballot sent back is ordered one to six from the perspective voter and points are given six through one depending on the order. No order from a voter means the artists get 3.5 points a piece.

Stevie Wonder led the pack this week getting the most first place votes and leading the way on being on the most ballots. Van Halen, who had the lead for part of the past week, still finished strong enought to grab second place. Buddy Holly becomes yet another artist representing the 50's Pop Rock division as he took third place in points. While the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, catapulted into the fourth place spot on ballot 28 this week keeping Depeche Mode at bay and out of an automatic bid. The good news for DM is they have more than enough points from the genre rounds and semifinal rounds to at least get to be in the play in match round. And with the guys from Depeche Mode moving into that spot, we say goodbye to the Sex Pistols this week as The Smiths are officially on the bubble during the final week of voting.

To follow along with how all the artists are doing in the semifinals, visit Top Artists Of All Time: Finalists (Semifinals Rounds) for the updated Top 64 field. Also, pay attention to The Last Four In and The Last Four Out at the bottom of the page. Artists will be seeded based on how many points they received in the semifinal and genre rounds combined. The Last Four In (based on those points) will have to match up against The Last Four Out (based on those points) much like the NCAA basketball tournament "Play In Games". As always, thanks for participating and supporting. Have a great week!
