favorite Jazz Fest artist (poll results)

For the past several months there has been a poll up here asking which artist you're most excited to see at Jazz Fest. It was a tough survey, a lot of feedback said it wasn't fair to only allow one choice. Well that's what it was asking, which single artist or group did you want to see more than any others. Here are the unscientific, unofficial and unorthodox results of this survey.
Al Green 1%   Ozomatli with Chali 2na 0%
Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn 1% Pet de Kat Krewe 2%
Billy Joel 2% Randy Newman 0%
Bobby McFerrin and Chick Corea 1% Rebirth Brass Band 1%
Burning Spear 0% Robert Plant and Alison Krauss 4%
Cassandra Wilson 0% Santana 4%
Del McCoury 0% Sheryl Crow 2%
Delbert McClinton 0% Steel Pulse 0%
Diana Krall 2% Stevie Wonder 24%
Dianne Reeves 0% Terrence Simien 1%
