We love a good poll here at Take 40, and to celebrate the Olympics we thought we'd try to find out which of our music heavyweights have enough fans to support them through to gold silver and bronze!
Unsurprisingly we had a mammoth response, and across only 5 days collected 822762 votes!
International sensations One Direction took out the gold medal with 293972 votes, Justin Bieber came in next with 293081, and our very own Aussie Altiyan Childs won bronze with a massive 134209 votes.
Special mention to Altiyan Childs for collecting the most amount of votes out of the Australian artists.
View the full poll results here!
Altiyan was our reigning poll winner before this, and had these words to say after he won earlier this year.
"..once again, these fragile and fickle words is all i have to carry my indescribably heavy gratitude for taking me to number 1 for the third time in a row in the latest Take40 polls.. simply hard to believe. Soon i will honor your superhuman faith in me in the biggest way possible.."
Bad luck this time around Altiyan, and well done to Directioners and Beliebers!
One Direction spotted rehearsing for the Olympic closing ceremony!
Well done to all who voted One Direction and Justin Bieber fans.To all us Alti fans we have proven we are passionate about our rockstar..Well done to all who voted at all hours of the day and night even into the wee small hours..
