Platinum goes to...
Three talented yodelers rocked the mic, made it platinum and are on their way to Internet stardom! In October 2009, over 550 million adoring fans can heard the platinum yodels on the world's largest stage -- the Yahoo! Homepage. Now, you can listen to them here.
These lucky yodelers and their talented pipes may even be featured in the 2010 Yahoo! advertising campaign.

Yodeling since she was five years old, "I choose to participate because I enjoy singing and yodeling. I thought it would be a great opportunity to do what I love." Give it up for Tiffany!
Platinum Yodel - India
"I have been singing all my life. But I've never done this. Singing online for Yahoo! was an amazing and unique experience." Way to go Ankitaa!
In a worldwide casting call, we searched far and wide for the best personal expressions of the Yahoo! yodel. We took to the streets of New York City, London and Mumbai, enlisted celebrity coaches and even continued the search online through a virtual recording studio.
With more than 21,000 submissions, you shared yodeling genius ranging from R&B to country duets to death metal and even dance routines. While only three yodels are official Platinum winners, many more blew us away with their passion and creativity. Be sure to check out the honorable mentions at the bottom of the page.
Whether you’re a first time yodeler or a seasoned singer thank you for participating and, most importantly, for being YOU!
