After narrowly losing out to Sharon den Adel of Within Tempation in the 2011 Rock Goddess of the Year competition, Evanescence siren Amy Lee earned the honor in the 2012 Loudwire Music Awards  -- thanks to overwhelming support from her devoted fans.

Lee took the lead right from the beginning and never trailed throughout the voting process. With 45.76 percent of the vote, the Evanescence singer garnered nearly half of the tens of thousands of votes that were cast in this category.

The race really turned out to be for second place with Halestorm's Lzzy Hale edging out In This Moment's Maria Brink and Lacuna Coil's Cristina Scabbie for the runner-up position.

We'd like to congratulate Amy Lee on her victory and officially name her Rock Goddess of the Year! See the full results below and click the red button for the next winner:
