New things

We reviewed some things about the HOPDG and we decided to make a few changes: New Facebook and Twitter fans get 10 free votes. Facebook and Twitter fans who “invite friends” get 60 votes (ten per category.) If you are on the front lines of COVID, we will give you 60 votes (ten per category.)

We also deduced that the voters would also speak their minds by either voting the solo artist in (who this year is Diana Ross), or acknowledge another artist. Thanks for voting!
