You ought to know about You Oughta Know! 
Since its launch in 2005, the VH1 franchise has introduced the world to artists on the rise and served as a barometer for what’s hot in music today. 
You Oughta Know alums like Lorde, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, The Lumineers, Mumford & Sons and Adele are now household names and have gone on to win not just Grammys, but Golden Globes and Oscars too. 
This year’s class will not disappoint — Sam Smith, CHVRCHES, Bleachers, American Authors, A Great Big World, Tove Lo, Aloe Blacc, KONGOS, Mary Lambert, Echosmith and Vance Joy. All eleven talented acts will be live on stage alongside celebs and stars at the second annual “VH1 You Oughta Know Live in Concert” live from New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Thursday, November 13 at 9 PM ET. 
This year, we’re excited to announce that we’re teaming up with VH1 to crown the “You Oughta Know Artist of the Year” from the 2014 Class of You Oughta Know artists. Starting today, you can begin voting for your favorite artist simply by listening to their music directly on Spotify. Each Spotify play will count as one vote, so the more fans listen, the more they vote. We will keep the tally of all the plays until November 13th, when the “You Oughta Know Artist of the Year” will be crowned during the live telecast event. 
Represent your favorite in the simplest voting system known to man.
Step 1: Go here.
Step 2: Listen to any Spotify track (1 play = 1 vote).
Step 3: Tweet your vote.
Step 4: Watch YOK In Concert on November 13 at 9/9 C to see the winner.
