Music & Nightlife - Reader' Picks

Photo: N/A, License: N/A

Editor's note: This year, we attempted to introduce a category for Best Singer/Songwriter in the Bet of Orlando Readers Poll. Unfortunately, our tallying software failed us, and the program did not tabulate any votes for the category. We apologize to all of the singer/songwriters and their fans who campaigned for Best Singer/Songwriter. We're moving to a new voting system next year that has fewer quirks, so hopefully this kind of problem will be a thing of the past.
