Now that we've got those pesky ballot housekeeping items out of the way, we have some really rad Showcase news to lay on you. Although our nominating committee had nearly a hundred members, some important people with worthwhile opinions were missing: You. So we've reserved some slots on this year's ballot for your picks.
Now's your chance to tell us which five acts you'd like to see added to the ballot. As when we opened this up last year, it's going to be a battle of the fans: Whichever acts generate the most comments below -- the only place you can vote for these additions -- will get the nod.
