Relax, chums: voting for the Shockwaves NME Awards 2010 opened yesterday, which means it’s your chance to influence who wins big at the ceremony on February 24. And because we know you well, we figure you’d think it a pleasure and a privilege to have your say HERE on who’s been the hottest lady in music land in the last 12 months.

The current top 20 includes:

1/ Hayley Williams

2/ Katy Perry

3/ Alison Mosshart

4/ Lily Allen

5/ Beyonce

6/ Shakira

7/ Alicia Keys

8/ Pixie Lott

9/ Cheryl Cole

10/ Rihanna

Go HERE to vote.

Or look DOWN THERE for a gallery.

If you think you’re capable of something a bit more ‘all about the music’ than that, then go to the NME Awards 2010 homepage and cause some collateral damage. HERE IT IS.
