As promised, popular write-in candidates for O Music Awards categories – a full nineteen of them – have been added to the official lists of nominees. Thanks to fan voting, all but two categories have new nominees.
Three artists lead the additions: Adam Lambert (Best Remix, for “Aftermath (Billboard Remix),” and Must Follow Artist on Twitter), Trey Songz (Fan Army FTW for TreysAngels and Favorite F**k Yeah Tumblr), and Kanye West (Favorite Animated GIF for his “Smile Then Angry” and Best Fan Forum for Kanyetothe.com).

- I have decided to become the best rapper of all time! I put it on my things to do in this lifetime list
Perhaps it’s a bit excessive to suggest that Mr. West was robbed in a category in which he is the only nominee, but it’s rather a surprise that “I just threw some kazoo on this b***h” was not nominated.
A full list of new nominees is below. Don’t forget to vote early and often!
