F.A.Q. (FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS)
What is a nomination?
A nomination is similar to a ticket purchase. The nomination acknowledges that you 'would' buy a ticket to see this artist, if it weren't for these unprecedented times. A nomination is how you can support an artist from the comfort and safety of your home.
How many nominations do artists need in order to perform?
Only 10 nominations for a BRONZE PERFORMANCE.
What happens when an artist gets their first nomination?
They are automatically enrolled in our brand new 2HotRadio Elite Membership for 30 days FREE, which includes access to more performance opportunities, access to sell merch on 2HotStore.com, access to music courses, access to receive radio play with Amazon's Alexa, Apple Car Play, and BDS through 2HotRadio and receive royalty payments, and more!
What happens if artists sell more than 10 nominations?
Artists receive 50 points for every nomination sold. The points are added to the artist's score to help them make it to LA for BET Weekend. If the artist sells 20 or more tickets, they become a SILVER PERFORMER.
Is the Top 5 & #1 Artist determined by who has the most nominations?
No, not nominations alone. The Top 5 & #1 Artist is based upon a points system. Nominations do help artists increase their points, however the judges score counts for the most points, which makes the final decision based on talent.
What's included in the SILVER PERFORMANCE (20+ nominations)?
The artist will have a chance to be featured on Worldstar and receive access to the media area at the show.
What's included in the GOLD Performance (50+ nominations)?
The artist will have a chance to be featured on Worldstar and receive access to the media area at the show. Additionally, they'll receive a complimentary bottle of champagne; a 2nd performance during the IG Live Skills Challenge, and a chance to work with super producer Saucelord Rich of FKI, who has produced for 2 Chainz, French Montana, Gucci Mane, Bankroll Fresh, Famous Dex, Jhene Aiko, Post Malone, and many more. Their performance will be later in the evening, during prime time hours.
What's included in the PLATINUM Performance (100+ nominations)?
The artist will receive all the benefits of BRONZE, SILVER & GOLD. Additionally, PLATINUM performers will be guaranteed to perform in LA during BET Awards weekend.
Will artists who perform virtually receive the same benefits?
Yes, excluding the bottle of champagne, due to alcohol laws. However, a voucher will be provided for complimentary champagne at our next event.
How will artists perform virtually?
Virtual performers will pre-record their performance and send it in advance. The virtual performances will be premiered to our network of affiliates in real time on the day of the show, in order to stream it to the live audience.
What are the rules for the virtual performance?
The video must be no longer than 3-5 minutes long (length of 1 song). Profanity is acceptable, but no nudity or content that YouTube would flag. It does not have to be a professional setting; it can be in a living room. We are not judging artists based on their setting. We want everyone to have a fair opportunity. iPhones are recommended for best quality, however any phone, tablet or camera will work. Logos and promotional/non-offensive text is acceptable
How will fans be able to access the show from home?
Fans can access the show from www.2hotradio.com
Where will the event be streamed from?

Who will have access to attend?
The event is mainly for artists, due to social distancing guidelines. Only the artist, manager, and direct members of the artist camp may be allowed in the performance area. We recommend under 10 people total (under 5 is preferred). However the after-party area will have more space to allow for larger numbers of people.
Who will be in appearance?
Throughout the day, there will be appearances by members of Atlanta & national radio stations and media outlets, members of our national social media affiliates, and our staff. The room will be small and will only allow 50% capacity to allow room for 6 feet of separation, for the safety of all guests and participants.
