The first Hot Listener's Choice Awards took place last night we had the honor to honor some of the best in the 518.

The winner's circle that you voted on in December were honored with a ceremony last night at The Upstate Concert Hall. The event kicked off at 8p last night when we had performances from I Am Shamar and U.S. Bay. Special guest New York State Assemblyman Angelo Santa Barbara even stopped by to show love.

Hot 991's DJ Show, DJ Biz, and DJ Supreme hosted the show and DJed the event. Take a look at the pics from last night's event and give a quick thanks to the Upstate Concert Hall and the staff for accommodating the awards show. Special thanks to everyone who voted and participated in last night's award show with out you none of it would've been possible.
