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 3 will be active until Thursday January 16th at 10:00PM Pacific. Group 2 is still active until 10:00 pm tonight; vote here. Group 4 will start Thursday and be active until Friday, and so on. Please listen to every song! Don’t just vote name recognition.
