Back in the middle of last month, the team at Channel [V] was slowly but surely counting down the top 50 Oz Artists for 2011, as voted by you.
As we mentioned at the time, there was plenty of pop to keep the purists happy within the 50 selected, from Zoe Badwi, Guy Sebastian, Jessica Mauboy and Havana Brown to Stan Walker, Sneaky Sound System, Miami Horror, Kimbra, The Potbelleez and last year’s winner Short Stack.
But that top 50 has now been whittled away to just ten. And the top ten artists vying for the ultimate honour in 2011 are (in alphabetical order;
• Amy Meredith
• John Butler Trio
• The Jezabels
• New Empire
• Owl Eyes
• Parkway Drive
• Guy Sebastian
• Short Stack
Could it be two in a row for the boys from Budgewoi? Could the so-hot-right-now Gotye run away with the prize following on from his mega-selling single ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’? Or could Guy Sebastian’s starring role on the judging panel on this year’s X Factor get him over the line? It’s all over to you, with voting now open HERE.
The top four finalists will be announced on Channel [V] on Saturday November 19, with the ultimate winner being revealed on Saturday December 10.
