The third tournament on the site chose the best metal vocalist of all time, and it took place in the spring and summer of 2012.
In the past there had been 64 entrants in a tournament. This time, because there were so many worthy vocalists to consider, I expanded the tournament to 96 vocalists. 32 were named as "favorites" and received a pass in the first round. The remaining 64 were paired off, the 32 winners joined the 32 favorites, and the tournament continued as before with 64 moving forward. As with the last tournament, there were no seeds, and the pairings were not announced in advance.
The lists below denote the 32 favorites and the remaining 64 qualifiers.
