It’s the final showdown in our 8 Greatest Women In Pop Video Bracket Countdown Extravaganza! It started with round one, when we pitted Lady Gaga against Madonna, Britney Spears against Rihanna, Katy Perry against Mariah Carey, and Jennifer Lopez against Beyoncé. Thanks to your votes, we’re now down to the final two and it’s Lady Gaga vs. Mariah Carey!
In round two, Gaga beat Britney Spears by a close margin of 51% of votes to 49%, while Mariah won against Beyoncé by an even tighter margin — a mere 60 votes! In our 100 Greatest Women in Music series that aired on VH1 last week we chose Madonna as the top lady in pop, but you knocked her out back in round one. So tell us? Who do you think is the greatest woman in pop? Is it Mother Monster, the avant-spectacle of crazy costuming and dance-led anthems? Or is it the soulful, timeless Mariah your ultimate fantasy? Voting closes on Monday at 11 a.m. EST, so get your vote in to make sure your favorite lady wins!
