2012 Readers' Choice Awards Winners

About.com
In January 2012, About.com asked readers to nominate their favorite Christian and Gospel artists and bands in ten categories: Best Female Vocalist, Best Male Vocalist, Best Indie Christian Band, Best Unsigned Christian Solo Artist, Best Christian Hardcore Band, Best Christian Rock Band, Best Christian Hard Rock Band, Best Christian Pop/Contemporary Band, Best Urban Gospel Artist and Best Inspirational Artist.

Nominations poured in in all of the categories and the five artists / bands with the most nods in each category were named as finalists. Voting opened on Wednesday, February 22nd at 12:01 am ET and ran until 11:59 pm ET on March 21st.

Old favorites went head to head with new faces. Thousands of votes were cast and the winners were determined. To see who the most popular Christian Artists and Bands of 2012 are, click through this gallery to see the winners (and their margin of victory) in each category.
