Who’s #1?
As I mentioned in my voting preview post, “Beautiful Cry” by Michael Lynne was guaranteed to be at #1 this week due to its lead in points; this is the 5th and final week at #1 for “Beautiful Cry” as it was retired from the voting and will not be on next week’s chart.

On the Top 75 page, there are two links about the chart.  One link takes you to the Chart Website; the other link takes you to the Chart Page on the website that allows you to see the full chart with details on every single song that is on this week’s chart.

*–Vote Score = # of Votes divided by the Probability of Receiving a Vote.  This formula was instituted for the Hot Song beginning with the voting for the 2/22-2/28/15 Chart, but was renamed Power Score for the “Power of the Vote” song starting with the 8/23-8/29/15 Chart.  Eventually, the song name was changed back to the Hot Song and the score was called the Vote Score beginning with the 8/28-9/3/16 Chart.
