On this page I explain how songs earn Points.
First, songs accumulate Points, meaning that whatever Points they earn in a given week, they keep as long as they are still in the voting.
The chart is created by sorting the songs by the amount of Points they have accumulated during their time in the voting.
During the voting, songs earn Points based on the percentage of the vote they get (“Percentage” Points) and what place they finish on the poll they are on (“Place” Points).
The total number of Points a song earns during a week is the sum of their “Percentage” and “Place” Points; that total is added to what they have earned prior to that week.
For “Percentage” Points, only songs on Levels 1 through 10 earn these Points; the amount is rounded to the nearest percent and sometimes the total awarded may not add to 100.
For “Place” Points, the following table shows how many points a song earns based on the Level it is on and what place it finished (for Levels 1 through 10):
|Level 1||Level 2||Level 3||Level 4||Level 5||Level 6||Level 7||Level 8||Level 9||Level 10|
*- “The rest” means any other song on that Level that week.
**- these songs songs are being promoted to Level 2, so they will get more Points. The remainder of the songs that would finish 4th and 5th will not be promoted, but will get more than 1 Point.
***- typically, these songs are not being promoted to Level 10 as only one Level 9 song gets promoted. However, there may be times when all 3 get promoted (see Level Information Page).
For the Entry Level, only the Top 10 songs get Points (these songs are all being promoted to Level 1). For these songs, 1st get 10 Points, 2nd gets 9 Points, 3rd gets 8 Points, etc. with 10th getting 1 Point; the rest of the songs on the Entry Level do not earn any Points.
