11/17-11/23/19 Edition Chart Voting Preview Part 1: Who’s Retired?

The main purpose of this post is to announce what songs met the requirements for retirement from the voting during the voting for the previous chart.  To be retired from the voting means that the song will not be in any future voting and will be removed from the chart soon.  

There are three categories for the ways a song can be retired:

  1. By percentage of the vote (applies for all songs except those on Level 10 and only to those songs who did not finish in the Top 5 on the poll).
  2. Met certain conditions while on the Level 10 Poll
  3. Just spent its 30th week on the chart (the current time limit)

Retirement Category #1: Songs Who Missed Their Percentage:
The following songs did not get the percent of the votes needed; the “% Difference” column shows how short the songs were of their needed percentage:

Retirement Category #2: Level 10
Each week, there are certain conditions songs have to avoid while on the Level 10 Poll in order to remain in the voting.  Here are the conditions:

  1. Last of the eligible songs (songs are not eligible to be retired when it is their first week on Level 10)
  2. The reigning #1 song finishes lower than 3rd on the Level 10 Poll
  3. Any song in the voting for 21 or more weeks has to finish 4th or higher.

Last on Level 10 Poll: “I Promise You” by Nick Hedden

Status of Current #1: The reigning #1 song was “Dusty Gravel Road” by The Family Sowell and it finished 1st on Level 10 this week, so it remains in the voting.

Status of songs in the voting for 21 or more weeks and not at #1: Nick Hedden’s “I Promise You” would have qualified for this, but finished last anyway

Retirement Category #3: Timed Out
The songs listed here are being retired from the voting either because the artist has requested the song to be retired or the song has now spent 30 weeks on the chart, which is the most a song is permitted to be in the voting.

None this week.
