  Voting is now closed.

Note: I had to remove Paul K's nominations, as he hasn't kept up with replacement nominations. Paul K's previous nominees will be retained in my records in case he decides to re-join the project.

Note: I couldn't count joker's nomination for King Crimson this round because it was the only band that was nominated. At this point in the ranking process, a minimum of 75 nominations is required to be included towards initial ranking vote qualification. You, along with any other interested voters, can continue to participate in the rankings votes, even if you don't have the required number of nominated performers.

The following performers received at least 10 votes and are eligible for the initial ranking vote:

ABBA

Bill Haley & His Comets
Carl Perkins
Chic
Curtis Mayfield
Depeche Mode

Any voter who would like to participate is eligible to vote, even if they didn't nominate any performers in the project as of yet.

To vote in the tiebreaker, select 25 performers and rank them in order of preference. The highest ranked song will receive 25 points, the second highest 24 and so on.

The 15 performers that receive the most points (with more than 15 possible in the case of a tie) will advance to the final rankings, which will determine Performers #101-#115 in the 2017 Rankings.

There will be 3 days of voting. Voting will end at 10 PM Central (votes accepted until 11 PM Central) on Sunday the 25th.

  Tiebreaker voting is now closed.

Here are the final results (let me know ASAP if there are any errors):

86. Nine Inch Nails
87. Ike & Tina Turner
88. 2pac
89. Eric Clapton
90. Santana
91. Van Halen
92. Jackie Wilson
93. Blondie
94. Deep Purple
95. Pixies
96. Alice Cooper
97. T. Rex
98. The Bee Gees
99. Red Hot Chili Peppers
100. Jefferson Airplane


To determine the final results of this re-ranking, we combine the results of the 2017 rankings with the final results of the 2014 re-ranking (which was actually the average of the 2014 re-ranking and the 2012 rankings). Performers added from 2015-2017 will be treated as though their 2017 rankings were the same as their 2014 final rankings (their 2017 ranking will be doubled).

Here are the current rankings of the artists that have been ranked so far in 2017, along with their 2017 ranking (tiebreaker preference will go to the higher ranking performer in 2017):

1. The Beatles - 2 (1)
2. Bob Dylan - 6 (2)
3. Elvis Presley - 6 (3)
4. The Rolling Stones - 7 (5)
5. Chuck Berry - 9 (4)
6. Led Zeppelin - 12 (6)
7. The Who - 17 (7)
8. The Beach Boys - 17 (9)
9. James Brown and the Famous Flames - 17 (10)
10. Aretha Franklin - 20 (8)
11. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - 22 (13)
12. Stevie Wonder - 23 (12)
13. Michael Jackson - 29 (14)
14. Ray Charles - 29 (16)

Replacement nominations are now open.

If you've previously nominated performers in this project, they will remain nominated (unless you state that you want to rescind a nomination). Replacement nominations are meant to replace the performers you've nominated in the past after those artists are ranked.

Here is my current count for how many replacement nominations each voter has for this round:

Darren - 14
AlexVoltaire - 10
DarinRG - 10
Darrin A - 21
dmg - 13
Donnie - 14
Gassman - 14
Jennifer - 12
joker - 100
MichaelEU - 15
Nick - 10
Nicky Joe - 14
***Paul K - 70 (Paul's nominations are not currently included)
Rick Vendl II - 17
Roy Gerald Bivins - 14
The_Claw - 14
Tom H. - 12

* = 1st round under the minimum of 75 nominees;
** = 2nd round under the minimum of 75 nominees;
*** = nominations will no longer be included in results if the total doesn't exceed 75 by the end of these nominations without explanation

Voters that haven't nominated artists previously are welcome to do so. For this round (and all rounds for the time being), the minimum number of nominations to qualify for re-ranking is 75 (the maximum is 100).

Any nominations from a voter whose total number of nominations falls below 75 total nominations (including those who nominated in Round 1) for two consecutive rounds will be temporarily disqualified unless an explanation is given for the lack of replacement nominations. This is done to ensure that Round 1 nominations don't have an outsized influence on future rankings should a voter lose interest in the project.

There will be 3 days of replacement nominations.

Replacement nominations will end at 10 PM Central (open until 11 PM Central) on Thursday the 22nd.
