2012 About.com Readers' Choice Awards - Dance Music / Electronica Finalists

By

We're excited to announce the finalists for the About.com Readers' Choice Awards in the Dance Music / Electronica site. We were flooded with nominees so it took a bit of time to tabulate the finalists.

Here are the finalists for each of the Dance Music / Electronica categories. As hard as we tried to narrow each category to 5, there were so many nominations and the totals were so close, that we felt it was necessary to expand the total to really show the diversity of the genre. Voting is now open and will close on March 21, 2012. You can vote once in each category every day. Place your votes, get your friends to vote, and don't forget to come back and do it all again!

If you're one of the finalists - congratulations! Please feel free to hit me up for graphics, links, or information if you need it in order to drum up support from your fans. Now, here are the finalists along with links to vote in each category:
