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! 175 videos, 40 to 45 from each bracket/general genre:
Each bracket has 32 videos. The second round goes for one week like The Countdown. The Pop and Country sides go first. The other half of the field is a TBA prospect, but will have their Top 16 move on as the fields emerge there!
This is where we get interesting in the second round and beyond. At the end of the second round, each bracket will be left with its Top 16 The third round will be the Round of 64...then the Round of 32, 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. Welcome to the Pop Bracket. We took a whole bunch of qualifying videos and whittled it down to the Top 8. So there are 32 total videos left, 8 in each bracket. The fun begins NOW.
The first official round of 64 (Top 16 in each bracket) 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 2 move on to the 2 available slots for each bracket for the field of 8 , MAKE THEM COUNT! This round ends Saturday January 20 at 11:59 pm ET! MAKE EVERY VOTE (ALL 100 ON COMPUTER/TABLET and MOBILE, making it 200 total!) COUNT.
NOTE: You can vote using your mobile device AND your computer, just like The Countdown where you could vote on both!
The Sweet Sixteen begins 1/13/14 at 7 pm ET and ends on 01/20/14 at 11:59 pm ET. The Top 2 in this bracket will move on. You get 100 votes a day on the web tally AND 100 votes on the mobile tally. Mobile votes count 2x. You can now vote in both!
UNLIKE THE COUNTDOWN, THERE WILL BE NO LEADERBOARD UPDATES IN THIS ROUND.
