ORIGINAL POST: With the second round of Top 40 voting in full swing and all the round one votes tallied, we're excited to unveil the first four artists (they'll be joined by two more from round two) who'll come back (with a vengeance, hopefully) in our wild card round beginning on Nov. 6. Hats off to these acts for having the most votes of all the non-winners:

Katy Perry
One Direction
Demi Lovato
Maroon 5

We gotta give it up to the fans for their crazy devotion. Thanks to them, these artists are still in the running for our video of the year. Katy Kats, Directioners, Lovatics and Marooners, start rallying the troops now to make the most of your second chance!
