    Great job Angels! Well - great job to THOSE DEDICATED FEW that voted over & over & over again for our babe. Trey WON by almost 800 votes on Singersroom 30 under 30 poll.

    Now here comes the fussing. There is no reason why Trey won by only 800 votes. As a fan of both Trey and Lloyd, I know, just like you know that Lloyd does not have the amount of fans that Trey does. Lloyd has had poor management that kept him underrated. Nevertheless, this is not about Lloyd. Trey should have won by a landslide, but it really wasn't. Lloyd passed Trey many times.

    For the life of me I cannot understand why some fans sit back and say how wonderful Trey is but when it's time to put your hand where your mouth is, you're too lazy to pick up the phone to request a record, too lazy to vote for him, too lazy to support Angels With Heart...basically too lazy to do anything that does not directly benefit YOU. Are you in this ONLY to see what you can reap?

    I know I'm a fan that wants Trey to succeed in every avenue that he pursues. Giving of your money (buying his merchandise, albums, and concert tickets) is wonderful, but please don't forget the importance of giving of your time. Request his records, vote for his singles on 106 and Park, and vote when he is in any type of competition. Let's show him that we truly love him and support him.

    Thank you!

Yeah at the end of the poll the numbers for Trey and Lloyd were much higher, but after they figured things out their numbers went down a great deal. I suppose some people were doing fishy things. During that poll I never tweeted so much in my life. It felt like ever second I was tweeting "I just voted for @TreySongz Singersroom 30 under 30...." I was a little embarrassed to post anything about the poll on my FB page so I asked my younger cousin to do it on her page. I hope it helped. LOL I could imagine it was stressful for you. It was for me too. Next year when this poll comes around I'm making flyers and passing them around NYC. LOL Yeah I'm sure the singersroom.com did some good business with all the hits they had to their site. The artists probably are embarrassed about how some of their fans were going at it with other fans. OMG I was the same way I wanted to vote for other people too but I was scared it was going to effect Trey's numbers.

I had singersroom up and refreshing every few minutes and a score pad writing down the figures. I could have sworn that LLoyd was much closer to Trey than that at the end but I threw out my figures. I was begging people to tweet so they didn't say we were using a server proxy to cheat. My poor azz was getting stressed. I hate these contests and I don't know if they are good for anybody except the ones sponsoring them. The artists are probably embarrassed. I liked other artists too but was afraid to vote for them because I thought the website might not let me vote for Trey and I wasn't taking any chances.

@Numba1Hon: LOL Ya'll I don't get upset often but this poll really had my eyebrow raised too often. Yes we were struggling.

I guess you are right. Trey didn't make it a priority to tell his fans about the poll but instead just let his fans spread the word about the poll.

I think they have to make this site more inviting. His fans really need to start coming to this site more. I know some people don't come here because of the occasional conflict that arises but if they can deal with the craziness that is on Twitter they can deal with it here.

@JIMS That line of Trey reasoning is exactly what I was going to say.

LOL @ JIMS. LMAO. You, me and Cuticurl were struggling on here. This is the first time I have seen you get this upset. I was too though.

No sis you weren't the only one. Singersroom.com was one of the first sites I looked at when I got to work. lol

I think there is a break in communication. Many fans are NOT coming to this board regularly as they are mostly on social networks and many are not communicating or watching or really following many other Angels but are probably mainly watching Trey's twitter. Trey did not tweet about the contest, but Lloyd tweeted, Ustreamed. and was on 106 & Park and has been out promoting his current music That might explain his current level of support. If Trey had tweeted and asked, I believe many more fans would have voted.

"That's true our votes counted for all the people that did vote."

I meant didn't vote

Lloyd is a talented brother and deserved every vote he got but when you compare the fanbase you would think Trey would have far surpassed Lloyd and that just wasn't the case. When everything was said and done Trey only won by 800 votes. That just aint right. It should have been 800,000.

As much time as people spend tweeting Trey asking him to follow them, telling him they love him and showing him butt, nipple and coochi shots they could have taken a little time to carry their behinds over to the singersroom to vote.

This poll consumed too much of my time. I was so fixated on voting for Trey. I was refreshing every second too. LOL

I was wondering if Trey purposely didn't tweet about this poll. Probably wanted to see how he would fair in the poll without having to telling his fans to vote.

You are right it felt like you had to be on the singersroom.com every second just to keep Trey on top. LOL That's true our votes counted for all the people that did vote. Right it was pathetic.

I hope Lloyd's Meet and Greet is somewhere close enough for you to attend. It's nice that both Trey and Lloyd get a chance to do the Meet and Greet.

I didn't even know that Singersroom was going to grant the fans a chance to meet the winner until the day before or last day of the poll. I think that is nice they are doing that.

Yes Sis - I definitely saw you voting and I constantly saw you on my Twitter Timeline telling others to vote.

I was really disappointed that I could never take a day off from voting in fear that my one day of not voting would cause Trey to lose...especially when he has over 2 million followers. If everyone would've voted at least once - competition over! But no, I had to make sure I stayed on it so that I could step up for the fans that were not voting. That was really pathetic that the race was as tight as it was.

We as fans need to do better. For those that did their part in voting and helping Trey win...you already know Trey appreciates you. I sallute you as well!

Sis, you know I voted for Trey every single day since I knew about that poll. And I can truly say I was very disappointed that Trey had below 8000 votes. That is simply crazy to me. I have expressed my disappointment about the lack of voting prior to the close of the polling.

All this business about I love Trey and I ride or die for Trey. Whatever! I'm not saying that those aren't true statements for most of his fans, but the other ones I'm not sure.
