The votes are tallied and Rolling Stone is pleased to announce Karmin as the winner of our “Women Who Rock” flip cover contest.

In partnership with Garnier Fructis, Rolling Stone's “Women Who Rock” contest celebrates the diverse array of female artists currently dominating the music world. Karmin singer Amy Heidemann will grace the flip cover of the iconic “Women Who Rock” issue, on newsstands Sept. 28th, and the duo is featured in the magazine along with other female musicians.

Karmin took the internet by storm last year after posting a cover of Chris Brown's "Look at Me Now" on YouTube. The clip instantly went viral and became one of YouTube's most viewed videos of 2011. The duo has since released debut album Hello and racked up over half a billion views for their videos.

"Congratulations to Karmin!" says Nathan Brackett, Rolling Stone Deputy Managing Editor. "They approached the 'Women Who Rock' contest like they've approached the rest of their career – with a lot of hard work, enthusiasm and a real grassroots talent for connecting with their fans. They've earned this."
