Telescope Inc. partnered with MTV to deliver a powerful online voting experience for the 2023 CMT Music Awards. The fan-voted awards featured nine categories, including Video of the Year, Female Video of the Year, Male Video of the Year, and more. With a combination of online voting and the Facebook comment voting, Telescope played a crucial role in engaging fans and ensuring a smooth voting process.


Telescope's expertise in online voting technology allowed fans to cast their votes easily and securely. The campaign included a Phase 1 voting period, where users across the US accessed the platform to vote in all nine categories, and a Phase 2 voting period, with all categories closed except for the top six Video Of The Year nominees.

Additionally, a key highlight on Show Day was the integration of the Facebook comment voting for the live voting, an exciting and seamless voting method. Fans could vote by commenting on designated Facebook posts using approved hashtags, with up to 10 votes per post, providing a maximum of 30 votes available per user with this vote method. Fans could vote on Facebook and online during the live show, and the vote results were revealed on air in the last act.

The voting process featured multiple phases, providing ample opportunities for fans to participate. The campaign included "Turbo Days" on specific dates, which allowed fans to double their votes, while "Power Hour" intensified voting from 1-2pm ET. This inclusive approach ensured a fair and engaging voting experience, accommodating fans' preferences and availability across the US.
