The main purpose of this post is to announce what songs met the requirements for removal (based on percentage of votes) from the voting during the 5/27 Edition of the Fan Voted Chart Voting and therefore will no longer be in the voting (with one exception). These songs will still be on the next chart we vote for (the 6/3 edition), losing at least 10% of their previous points total (a minimum of 5 Points lost, not to fall below 0 Points). Each song will then be removed before the next chart is created (the 6/10 edition).
The exception: each week, the song(s) that miss their required percent of votes by the smallest amount is (are) saved from removal. Note: songs have to have received a vote in order to qualify for the exception (a song that does not receive a vote during its third week in the voting by the way I do this would technically be the closest and get the exception, but that is contrary to the point of the exception, which is to give a song who had votes and might have been a vote or two short of staying in the voting a second chance).
The following songs did not get the percent of the votes needed; the bolded song(s) was/were saved (see paragraph above).

The other reason for this post to announce what songs are being retired from the voting. The songs listed here are being retired from the voting either because the artist has another song entering the voting next week or the artist has requested the song to be retired. One other way a song is retired is if the song has spent 30 weeks in the voting, which is the most a song is permitted to be in the voting.
No songs are being retired this week.
