UPDATE: The winner of the Hottest 100 of 2019 has been announced.

Happy Hottest 100 Day everyone! triple j has been counting down your favourite tunes of 2019 since midday and we’ve now officially reached the halfway point.

Yup, the beers have been sunk, our ears sufficiently warmed, and now, it’s time to get down to business. We hope you haven’t used up your Hottest 100 Day quota of fire and tuna emojis, because there’s still another 50 tuna sangas on the way.

We’ll take a looksie at the bottom 50 of the Hottest 100 in a sec. But for now, let’s recap on the stats and big moments of the countdown so far.

The stakes seem higher for the countdown this year with a record number of votes placed: 3,211,596. A whopping 16.4 per cent more votes than last year.

We know that a HUGE 65 per cent of the countdown is homegrown. So that means we have another 30 Aussie songs coming up.

There are 17 artists making their countdown debut this year, and so far, we’ve seen some stellar debuts. Slowly Slowly came in at #57 with ‘Jellyfish’, Spacey Jane at #80 with ‘Good For You’, and Adrian Eagle at #95 with ‘A.O.K.’.

According to Warm Tunas the #1 position is a race between Denzel Curry and Billie Eilish.

Also in the race for those special top spots are Mallrat, G Flip, and Thelma Plum.

Billie Eilish has already charted twice with ‘wish you were gay’ at #67 and ‘all the good girls go to hell’ at #91.

Joining her with multiple Hottest 100 entries are Thelma Plum, with ‘Homecoming Queen’ at #65 and ‘Not Angry Anymore’ at #78, and three (!!!!) for G Flip with ‘Lover’ at #58, Stupid at #66 and ‘I Am Not Afraid’ at #77.
