Now we get to the eliminations. We have 616(!) songs in this tournament; they have been broken up into 19 groups of either 32 or 33. For the group stage, vote for as many songs as you like! The top 8 songs of each group will automatically advance to the knockout rounds. Additionally, the top 104 songs across all groups outside the top 8 will advance as “wild cards”. 1
We’ll be “feathering” groups; voting on group 1 will be active until Tuesday January 14th at 10:00PM Pacific. Group 2 will start Tuesday and be active until Wednesday, and so on. Please listen to every song! Don’t just vote name recognition.
You can listen to all songs in group 1 in this handy YouTube playlist! (Don’t worry, songs will also be linked in the comments, where voting will take place)
You can work ahead if you like:
Again, voting for group 1 is open until Tuesday January 14th at 10:00PM Pacific.
