UPDATE: Britney Spears beat Michael Jackson in the semi-finals for Greatest Pop Song of the Modern Era! Nice work!
Britney’s LOSING against Michael Jackson in PopCrush’s Greatest Pop Song of the Modern Era competition, and she needs your help!
“It’s Round 4 of our Greatest Pop Song of the Modern Era tournament, and the competition is getting tight! Last round, Michael Jackson‘s ‘Billie Jean’ beat out Cyndi Lauper‘s ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun,’ making it the fan favorite for the ’80s bracket. MJ will face off against the winner of the ’90s bracket, Britney Spears. In Round 3, Brit’s ‘Baby One More Time’ barely bested the Backstreet Boys with 51% of the votes. Between Michael and Britney, who will move to the final round of voting?
Michael is undoubtedly one of pop’s greatest performers. ‘Billie Jean,’ the second single off of 1982′s ‘Thriller,’ spent seven weeks at No. 1. Even today, it’s widely considered one of the best songs of the 1980s. While Michael locked down his respective decade in the Greatest Pop Song competition, can he top Britney?
Britney Spears’ ‘Baby One More Time’ is one of her biggest smashes. In addition to topping charts worldwide, Brit’s debut single was nominated for a Grammy! Although Britney has numerous albums and hit songs to her name, ‘Baby’ will always hold a special place in the ’90s pop music canon. Is it enough to help Britney beat the King of Pop?”
You can vote for Britney once every hour until the polls close on April 1 at 12PM ET.
You know the drill!
