We are pleased to give you the Burlesque TOP 50 for 2009 – as voted by YOU!
THOUSANDS of you have voted from all over the world – we were stunned by your response and are so glad that everyone took the time to vote.
This is a collective decision – some of you are performers, or people who work within burlesque as producers, writers, organisers, teachers, costumiers, photographers and so on.
Others of you are dedicated audience members and enthusiasts. So the people that have made this shortlist have been voted for by their peers and their fans alike.
Overall, you nominated over 800 different performers!
We know that there will be inevitable discussion, and possibly some disagreement about who came where, and those who haven’t made the TOP 50 at all – believe us when we say there have been some shocks and heated discussions in our team over the results!
But here they are – YOUR TOP 50. The fifty individuals who have most impressed, entertained and inspired you in 2009. So let’s celebrate and acknowledge them!
