For the first time in the thirty-year history of Westword's Best of Denver, we've split the Best of Denver Readers' Poll into two rounds, giving you the chance to look at the leading vote-getters and then vote again for your favorite entertainment and entertainers in metro Denver. And the results of the first round are in! Keep reading to uncover the five finalists that you, the readers, have selected for the entertainment category on this year's Readers' Poll.

The finalists listed below are by no means shoe-ins -- meaning that in the next (and final) round of voting, you can either vote for your favorite finalist or start over with a completely different entry. The final deadline for online voting is 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20, at which point we'll close the poll and calculate the results one last time. You'll be able to read both the Westword and Readers' Poll winners when our annual Best of Denver issue hits stands on March 28.
In the meantime, let us know what you think of the first-round finalists in the comments section below. And don't forget to vote!
