Yes Musiqtone has ads. But once upon a time, ad revenue each month more than met our minimum operating cost. And also once upon a time, we relied on site donations. And now we need your help again. Your donation should be considered as an investment into the outlet, from our technology needs like server and upkeep costs and also ultimately the kind of independent and quality music journalism we offer, but we cannot completely do it if we cannot afford to send our people out into the field to cover events and get the inside scoop! If we could get everyone to donate $5, $10, this thing would be over in a day. But we'll settle for some of you to consider helping us...so please consider, any amount help. No, ANY INVESTMENT will help.
We have changed the way Music Video of the Year is done. Instead of shoving 100 videos down your throat on one page and make you scroll all the way down for every of your 50 votes, we are making this VERY INTERESANTE.
We are merging the elements from Music Madness and putting it to the test with Music Video of the Year! 100 videos, 25 from each bracket/general genre:
1. Pop Bracket (Genre Final begins 01/01 at 11:30 am ET.)
2. Alt/Rock Bracket (Genre Final begins 01/01 at 11:30 am ET.)
3. Country Bracket (Genre Final begins 01/01 at 11:30 am ET.
4. R&B/Hip-Hop/Rap Bracket (TBA)
This is the dealio:
Each bracket has 25 videos. The first round goes for one
week like The Countdown. The Pop and Country sides go first. The R&b/Hip-Hop and Alt-Rock brackets for the first round kick off 72 hours later!
This is where we get interesting in the second round and beyond. At the end of the second round, there will be a total of 32 videos left (the field of 32 ). The third round will be the Sweet Sixteen, then we go into the Elite Eight (semi-final) where we do away with genres, re-seed and re-position and then the Final Four. The champion is then crowned, Music Video of the Year!
We take this down to only two videos and only ONE can take home Music Video of the Year!
This is it. The final preliminary round of 100. ONE-HUNDRED videos. Only the Top 12 can move on and continue to represent Pop Music. Then we go into the second prelim final of 48. Then we take the Top 8 in each bracket for the real competition.
The round of 32 will continue to be in the genre brackets until the Elite Eight (Top 2 in each) comes and we reseed, reposition regardless of genre.
So EVERY VOTE COUNTS. If you want to see any of these 12 move on to the 8 available slots for each bracket, MAKE THEM COUNT! This final prelim round ends Saturday December 22 at 11:59 pm ET! MAKE EVERY VOTE (ALL 100) COUNT.
NOTE: You can vote using your mobile device AND your computer, just like The Countdown where you could vote on both!
