Six Female Musicians From Broward and Palm Beach in Top 20 Finalists for Lilith Fair Spot

It's been more than a decade since the last Lilith Fair. The iconic XX-chromosomed festival has boasted some of the world's leading female stars, like Fiona Apple, Erykah Badu, Sarah McLachlan, Bonnie Raitt, and Jewel. And in 2010, like the previous three tours, Lilith Fair will offer local female artists the chance to be on the bill, which this year includes Loretta Lynn, Indigo Girls, the Go-Go's, and Mary J. Blige.

Currently there's a competition online over who will get the prize for West Palm and Tampa. Voting is open for the next four days, and fans can vote American Idol-style (as many times as they want) right here. Here's a list of local ladies in the top 20:

6. The State Of from Hallandale Beach
8. Beverly McClellan from Fort Lauderdale
13. Roxanne Lamendola from Hollywood
16. A Girl Named Chuck from Plantation
19. Amy Steinberg from Delray Beach
20. Sammy Witness from Boca Raton
