The number of votes placed for each artist in the #Searchlight competition is not made public, unfortunately(!)

The number of plays I've shown here, is the total number of plays for each artist. An artist that has been on CBC Music for longer will have more plays, and an artist with more songs uploaded to CBC Music will have more plays.

I'll go out on a limb here and congratulate Stereo Kid, for accomplishing a Top 25 placement, with only 40 total plays! They must have rallied a lot of votes from their fans.
