VOTE 2 WIN: ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES


Welcome to my second V2W! This V2W is based on the inductees of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, located in Cleveland, Ohio.

There are a total amount of 180 contestants in this V2W. There will be 5 matches a day because of the high amount of contestants. Matches will be updated everyday somewhere between 9PM to 10PM EST.

EDIT: Round 1 is finished, Round 2 has a total of 90 contestants. Updates will be at the same time, but there will be 3 matches a day now.




(pasting from my other V2W)

RULES (please read):

Please include all matches in your post - it gets confusing if you leave a match out.

Don’t overly praise or criticize a contestant, or your vote will be revoked. Comments like “I’m not a big fan of this band/musician” or “I like this band/musician more than the other” are fine.

You’re allowed to change your vote anytime during a match.

And any other normal V2W rules apply too, really.
