Patti Smith, Madonna, Chrissie Hynde, Sleater-Kinney: they're fun, they're female and they definitely rock – but first they had to be found, which is where you come in…



Because while the talent listed above has inspired legions of women to pick up a guitar, a microphone or a set of drum sticks to make their own music, now it's your turn to help kick-start the career of one of 10 semi finalists in CosmoStarLaunch's search for a superstar.







These talented 10 represent a dazzling line-up of ability across a wide array of genres -- including pop, country, R&B and plain ol' rock and roll. These ladies do more than just lip sync, all of them submitted original songs to enter the competition. Here is a playlist featuring their efforts to date.







The top three vote-getters will fly to New York City on December 5 to open up for UK artist Natasha Bedingfield and R&B vocalist Solange in a battle-of-the-bands style live performance, after which the overall winner will be named. Go to the CosmoStarLaunch channel for full details and instructions on how to propel your pick into the final round.



Don't delay, deadline for voting is Sunday, November 2. You never know – your vote could help launch the kind of career that music fans will talk about for generations to come.



Get out the Vote,
