It proved to be a two-man race for Best New Artist at the Loudwire Music Awards and former Hollywood Undead member Deuce emerged as the victor. The rap-rock artist enjoyed a breakout year with his first solo set, 'Nine Lives,' which spawned the hit single 'America' and such fan favorites as 'I Came to Party' and 'Nobody Likes Me.'

Deuce received just over 38 percent of the vote, besting another musician stepping out on his own from familiar territory. Mark Tremonti's finished second with just over 31 percent of the final tally, proving that the Creed and Alter Bridge guitarist could make good on his own. After Deuce and Tremonti, the next closest competitor was Falling in Reverse, who earned eight percent of the vote.

Congrats to the rap-rocking Deuce on the 2012 Loudwire Music Awards Best New Artist victory and all of his solo success. Stay tuned to see what he's got in store for 2013. See the full voting results below and click the red button for the next winner:
