Maybe you may want to do some promo in the Random Thoughts and CZB's UKMIX Chart topics?
I am not really sure whether users are really aware of the Choice Awards.

Thanks! I sent PMs to members that are active in the Personal Chart section and all in all 26 votes is around the max number of votes I'll get here. I still think I can receive 1 or 2 extra sets before saturday

Taylor Swift also gets 7 nominations this year. She managed to scroe #1 albums, singles and threads.

In the year Taylor was named Time Person of the Yearas part of the "Silence Breakers", she released her sixth album, Reputation. It was released on November 10, 2017, through Big Machine Records. The record was primarily produced by Jack Antonoff, Max Martin, Shellback and Swift herself, who also serves as the executive producer. Featured artists included on the album are English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran and American rapper Future.

The album has topped the charts in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. According to Nielsen SoundScan, Reputation sold 1.216 million copies in the US during its first week, becoming 2017's best-selling album in the country, and 2 million copies worldwide. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, Reputation received an average score of 71 based on 28 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews". The Guardian writer Alexis Petridis opined Reputation, "may be mired in bitterness and gossip, but the pop star's songwriting smarts and lyrical prowess are impossible to deny on her sixth album", noting the songs see "Swift cutting her last ties with her Nashville roots in favour of the blare and honk of EDM-influenced pop".

Now that all the fuss about the Grannies is gone, let's move to the important award show of the season!!
Every week CZB compiles the UkmixPARADE, which combines all of Ukmixerrs Top5s into one big chart. Every december, once the last chart of the year is presented, he goes one step further and present our very own Year-End Chart. Out of all the songs ranked I prepare the UKmixPARADE Choice Awards nominees. During january I promote and invite and wait for votes to come, and now that we are entering february it is time to unveil the winners.

Adele was the big name in the past two editions, taking home 9 awards in total, including Artist of the Year and Song of the Year both times, and also winning Album of the Year in 2016 which was the first time the award was presented. Thankfully, this year she is not nominated so we will have a brand new name receiving the honors. 28 awards will be presented through the week. Hoope you jin and have fun!!!

And to start the ceremony, please welcome 7 times nominee this year... TAYLOR SWIFT!!!
